Here they only mark the important lines...gas, electricity etc...

I always tell (and in writing) the customer that I am NOT responsible for cut lines. In fact, (I learned this from an irrigation friend) I tell them that I guarantee that I will cut their line and to just get ready to call the phone or cable company.

When I don't cut the line, they are even happier.

I've cut through incorrectly marked lines with my mini-ex a couple times. The first time I phoned the phone company, ended up getting a true live service tech. He was answering phone calls because they were light handed or something, and were swamped with calls. We chatted for a bit, and then he told me to go buy some underground phone wire, splice and tape it up. In a year or two when it corrodes and becomes a problem, they'll just run a new line, they won't track down the problem or the cause. All at no cost (in this area). Go figure.
