  • No because I find a land line more convenient, ironically
  • We've been without a land line for about 4 years now. We use cable internet, too. The land line was just another expense and a hassle, most of the time.
  • No because the landline is cheaper.
  • I have not had a landline in about seven years.
  • because I don't have nor want a cell.
  • duh-faxes and calls from jail
  • I have, and now I have a cell phone bill of 498.00 so time warner is coming to install digital phone service for 1995 a month, which is going to help me save money...
  • My only phone is the Time Warner Cable internet phone. Landline. Love it.
  • Oh my God. Please. For the love of all that's holy, getting rid of the landline and just using a cell is the worst thing to do EVER. I used to work for Cingular/AT&T, and I got at least ten or fifteen calls a day... people freaking out because they got rid of their landline, and then some sort of emergency happened... meanwhile, no service on the cell. Towers go down for maintenance, storms come up... cell service is NEVER guaranteed, and you could get stuck in a horrible situation without a backup. Please! Keep the landline!!!

  • Yep. Done!
  • I refuse to own a cell phone. The easier they try to make it for people to contact me, the more work it takes for me to be unreachable. I refuse to answer my email the same day I get it. I check my email once every four or five days, and I'll often let the messages ripen for a week or two before I get around to responding. If I respond at all. I have messages on my answering machine a month and a half old that I haven't listened to yet. I am not a misanthrope, but I also don't have any need to be constantly pawed by my fellow humans. I am content with my own company for the most part, and when I do feel the need for contact, I want it to be meaningful. To quote Thoreau: "Society is commonly too cheap. We meet at very short intervals, not having had time to acquire any new value for each other. We meet at meals three times a day, and give each other a new taste of that old musty cheese that we are. We have had to agree on a certain set of rules, called etiquette and politeness, to make this frequent meeting tolerable and that we need not come to open war. We meet at the post-office, and at the sociable, and about the fireside every night; we live thick and are in each other's way, and stumble over one another, and I think that we thus lose some respect for one another. Certainly less frequency would suffice for all important and hearty communications."
