    Let me tell you. If it is a CORDED Type phone then NO it is NOT Safe, BUT if you use a cordless handset, then your perfectly Safe, because if lightning hits your line, your cordless will just get disconnected. If you use a corded phone, you can get Electrocuted IF lightning struck your line.

    Corded Phone = Dangerous – CORDLESS = Safe.
