I've not found this -- I've often found it is easy to pull, especially 
if either the room abuts the bathroom (use the pipe chase to pull 
cable), you can find how electrical and phone wires are run to the room 
and that area is open, or it is on the first floor and the basement is 
unfinished.  However it is hard if the room is on an upper floor with 
no acccess to piping or other wire runs.

On the wall jacks, adding htem to existing plaster walls would be a lot 
of work.  But surface mount on baseboards is easy.
