Many many people use cordless phones and don't have a non-powered/corded

After the 22nd we had a national campaign to get old corded phones to
Christchurch.  5,000 were collected.  (Now when you consider the country
has a population of 4m and Christchurch has ~360k, 5,000 phones is quite
a few).

So the "old corded phones" were to be distributed to those who have copper/POTS service?

Kinda' off-topic, but what was the situation like regarding radio/television coverage during the event?
