still have a landline phone? We do but it is unplugged, only reason we have it is because of a package deal.

We dropped our landline about three years ago in favor of cell phones and haven't missed it for an instant.

We still have ours, but will likely be getting rid of it soon.

We have a landline phone, sort of. Technically it is part of the internet package and not a stand alone phone line from a phone company. We only have it for fax purposes.

I still have a landline ...mostly out of convenience.  Use it for long distance as I have a bundle package with unlimited usage.

I still have a land line and so do my parents. I hate talking on a cell phone. I can never seem to keep a good connection and my parents live in an area where you can hardly get a signal. I prefer it over the cell phone.

How do you like Magic Jack?

We have a land line and cell phone.  I love my land line, but hate the monthly bill, so I think very soon we will change to something else.  Magic Jack is way up on my list to try.

I am never giving up my landline phone it's the number I use for everything. My cell phone is private its the phone  that is all mine to use and answer as I see fit. I find that there is no reason for people to contact me when I am on the move. I don't need to be distracted by some business selling something or some stupid gossip when I am out I am out taking care of business for my household or taking care of personal things or having fun. I don't want people bothering me. I don't even give out my cell phone number. Landline forever! :peace:

I have a cordless phone in my apartment - 3 phone set.
Cell phones are not good for your health....you need protection from the radiation/ EMFs.
Even for cordless phones, it is necessary to put protective shields on. I love to use the speaker feature.
It works so clearly on the Panasonic brand.

I've been using Vonage as my "landline" for years.  My dad switched to Magic Jack a couple years ago and loves it.  I consider my VOIP my "landline" as it's my main contact number.

I hardly use my cell phone.  Mostly have it for emergencies when traveling, as a way for coordinating with members of my traveling party when on the road and using the GPS/internet for directions.  Due to a nearby TV tower, my cell reception in my house is horrible - calls constantly drop...although that may just be my provider as friends on other carriers don't have any issues in my home.  Planning to switch providers later this year to see if that makes a difference.

Like another poster, I don't feel the need to have people contact me 24x7 - I work in computers and deal with being on-call for work.  I have no desire to be "on-call" for my personal life.  People can leave a message and I'll call them back at my own convenience.

I just have a cell phone, and probably won't ever get a landline. I don't see the sense in having two phone bills. The only way I would get a landline phone would be if I moved to an area that didn't have good cell phone coverage.
