You are wrong -- dead wrong.  Telephone circuits are balanced; that
explains their inherent noise immunity.

Perhaps you are being confused by the fact that there are a number of
ways to implement a balanced circuit.  The broadcast audio gear
manufacturers Aphex, Jensen (transformers), and Rane all provide
excellent tutorials on balancing which are available freely on their
web sites.

And the balanced telephone circuit goes back to the very beginning of
telephony, before AT&T came into existence.

You need to check your facts before you make an assertion.
