Jackie is absolutely right, as is Joe.  You do not have a right to a home phone line courtesy of the Bureau.  
there would need to have been a business plan first. Since you say you want to go to school, that would also need to come first.

As far as I understand there would only be a dollar amount given for allotment other than services to be provided as part of  if an IPE (individual plan for employment ) if this plan has been developed then services have been outlined and those services must be provided. The only way a home phone line would be provided is if it is a direct need to secure employment, such as a home based business.
