    I really don't see the point of home phones anymore being that cell phones are so cheap. We haven't had one at my house for almost 3 years now I think.

    I have a home phone, or "land line." I have two reasons to keep it...

    1. There are people who I never want to have my cell number. Then they would just be bugging me. (I don't give out my primary email to everyone either).

    2. My main computer system, along with my home theater, is located in the basement. Cell service sucks down there, especially amongst all the electronic equipment. :)

    I still have a home phone. It's a VoIP phone via the cable company, but I have it.

    People still call me on it, and my security system uses it to dial out as needed.

    I still have a land line. Use it primarily for FAX though.

    Quit using ours a year ago, so just had it dropped last month, no sense in it for us, too many telemarketers.

    The mobile minutes I would need to buy to cover my in-home use of phones would exceed the cost of my flat rate land lines. Mobile international rates are pretty bad, too. 90% of my mobile phone use is SMS and data. We're a family of three on family share with 700 minutes only because I can't go lower than that and still qualify for some part of my plan, I forget what.
