Well in NY at least, AFAIK they cannot cut your dialtone for 911 calls.
If you've activated a land line at least once, then when they
disconnect your service you have dialtone and can make a call to a few
numbers... 911 being one of them... some others are codes like 990 (to
get the number assigned to the phone). This is with Verizon at least.
I know because when I moved here (NY). I always had a dial tone but
could not make any calls...but was informed that you can call 911...
It's in our phone books as well I believe.
