Just wanting some people's opinions on why they do/do not have a regular old landline phone.
We have kept our landline, but it seems like we NEVER get any phone calls on it except for various charitable organizations and a whole slew of political candidates during election season. It's to the point that when I hear it ringing, it takes me a second to realize what the heck that noise is... LOL!
I guess my concern is having access to emergency services. My husband and I both have a cell phone but if those phones were not working or available for whatever reason, that could be an issue. We have a 7-year-old child and while he's DYING for his very own cell phone, I still think he's too young. So not having a landline would potentially cut him off from being able to dial 911 in an emergency.
I also use my house number for any random forms I need to fill out that require a number. I prefer to not give out my cell to any businesses. Finally, we have a bundle for our home phone, internet, and cable service, so I don't even know if it would be any cheaper if we called and removed home phone. It would drop that off the bill, but the other two things would probably go up in cost.
We just upped our plan from 700 to 1400 minutes because of the special promotion Verizon is doing (with the $20 per line discount.) So we've definitely got the extra minutes floating around...
Thanks for reading my random post. What is everyone's thoughts on this? Do you have a landline, did you dump your landline, was it the best thing you ever did?
