It's not just power losses that a ups system can protect your sensitive electronics from.  It's also power spikes from lightning strikes or lost of power in nearby areas and power dips from sudden power strains on the grid.  Even a simple high joules rated surge protector would be enough for some folks.

I can tell her that in email. :) That is useful. Do you think she should buy one?

As for my digital home phone service. With the Uniden cordless phone set, Dave gave me I am going to test if it is indeed the service or the Panasonic phone itself I am using.

I really can't say for sure.  But I would highly doubt that the problem lies with the phone itself.  Since they are cordless and generally only need power for charging and powering the base unit.  Digital modems and computers on the other hand are very sensitive to power fluctuations and will seriously benefit from a UPS.

My mom hates how the phone sounds and blames the phone while I just blame digital and the phone modem.

Well that makes for a interesting question.  Did your mom have the same phone on analog and digital service?

Only I have went digital. My parents still have the old set up and my brothers have only cell phones. I am the only one with digital home phone with the cheapest company I could find.

 Have you tried replacing her (phone) cord?  ... humidity corrosion and all.

Apparently, we completely misunderstood you.  We thought you were saying that your mom hate's HER phone.

 Ok, I think she's saying her mom hates the sound quality of her phone. KT was going to try a phone set I gave her to see if it is the phones or the service causing the crappy sound. Easier to try another phone than switch services only to find it is your crappy phone (at least I think that's what she means).

Moisture static is something I am very familiar with beings I lived in one apartment where the phone wire was in the public stairwell and then came up to my apartment and had rain in it all the time. This isn't the same. It will sound perfect on my end but my mom will hear only echo or other noise but only when calling me.

Ok, I think she's saying her mom hates the sound quality of her phone. KT was going to try a phone set I gave her to see if it is the phones or the service causing the crappy sound. Easier to try another phone than switch services only to find it is your crappy phone (at least I think that's what she means).

That is exactly what I meant. I did a test call to my mom and she said it was better. We will see if consecutive calls are just as good. Thanks :)

Well, it sounds fine to me on this end.  But then again, I was the one who called you.
