My wife is after me to get rid of our home's telephone landline, since we both have cell phones.

It makes me feel uncomfortable to give up something I was raised with. I was lost for several years after they got rid of phone books. (I ran out of things to rip in half.) I remember party-lines, but barely.

On the other hand, I just realized that all we seem to get on our landline anymore are junk calls or scams.

Have you kept your landline? If so, why?

Haven't had one in fifteen years. I do remember my home phone number from forty-five years ago.

Yes, I still have a landline. Same phone number since the 1960's. I don't have a smart phone. I have a cheap TracFone that I turn on going to work and on the way home, just in case my wife needs to get ahold of me, that's it. I know this might be a shock to some, but, I've NEVER sent a text message. What a dinosaur I am! grin

I still have my lane line, When I have a hard time hearing someone I go to my lane line. Still work if the power is out a long time and I can not charge my cell phone.

Ditched the landline 8 years ago. No point in paying for something you never use. Unless, it's a gun or traps, of course!

I need a land line. My defibrillator/pacemaker calls into the cardiac center nightly with a readout. I also carry a cellphone.

No cell service at the house. Have to keep the land line. Grew up on a party line, big times when that went away.

I have a landline solely because I don't have cell service at my house. Could save myself a good chunk of change every month without it.

Got rid of our landline when I quit the ADC business. It amazes me that people will pay so much for the actual cell phone and then pay thru the nose to use it. The wife has a cell phone, I use it if I need to make a call but I hate calling people!!

Don't plan on doing away with my land line,its the one my customers call on. I do have a cell phone and find it a pain in the backside.
I still remember party lines and remember my phone number from 65 years ago.
Wish cell phones had never come into being--it seems to have dumbed down so many people,that need to be on them--no matter where they are our what they are doing.
