I believe it has to do w/ the operating frequency of the phone. A lot of phones operate on either 900 mhz or 2.4 ghz frequency. The 2.4 ghz frequency is also used by wifi wireless devices, and a cordless phone could potentially interfere with signal. Also, if a lot of people in a small space all start using cordless phones which operate on the same frequency, there's going to be signal disruption.

But I am not sure if that's the official reason

That is the reason, and your other point applies as well. If a bunch of people came with cordless phones, all operating on the same frequency band in close proximity, they wouldn't be very useful anyway.

Yes, the service itself is free, as are on-campus and local calls. Regional and long-distance off-campus calls are charged to your authorization code according to these rates.

If you have a cell-phone, you may find that more cost-effective for your non-local off-campus calls.

you each have your own. it's actually a really nice and convenient system, because you can just dial a 4-digit extension to call anyone on campus. and your extension stays the same all 4 years.
