I haven't had a land line since I lived at home with my mom and dad which was about 6 years ago. It's just easier to have a cell phone. If you live out where my parents do, a land line is handy because cell phones don't always work.
We have one for emergencies. Cell phones are great and all, but the reception isn't always perfect, and having a land line just makes me feel safer.
That's why we have one, too. Also, my husband is very old fashioned (his parents had a wall mounted dial phone until the late 1990s, when the phone company nearly had to come and take it by force!) I also have one for some of my clients, when I don't want to be available 24/7, like I might be with a cell phone. Also, the Lactation sites that list my number always list my land line.
I still have a landline phone and I don't plan on getting rid of it.I also have a cell phone but,I just find it easier to have a phone that I can hold onto.And I don't like the fact that everyone would have access to me everywhere I go.
Had one until two months ago, never thought I would put us in that kind of situation living in the country and all but it got to be too expensive. Good thing we have neighbors somewhat close and our cells get good reception.
I'm not really sure why I still got a land line, but I guess it's because of some relatives and close friends that only have this # in case they have to get a hold of me.
Mostly it's used for stores, banks and other business's that don't need to be calling me on my cell.
