I think that there are a lot of different ways to invest. What one persons says to do another will say that the exact opposite is the way to go.
I am a cheapskate and do what I can myself. I have been hiring more work done, trying to shift to the other approach. However, I’d probably replace an electrical receptacle myself and check the phone jack, which is a simple thing, probably.
You might ask the electrictian as long as s/he is there, to see if there is an obvious problem with the phone jack and fix it if possible.
Usually electricians charge a one hour minimum fee. Usually working on one receptacle is less than a half hour. Checking the phone jack should not take long and probably therefore will cost you nothing more, if the electrician is charging for an hour.
