    As I was reading that other thread all I could think was “half the time these days no one even know’s what your area code is beacuse your phone number is programmed in their cell!”




    No we don’t have a land line 🙂


    ETA: We live outside of Seattle. I don’t know many people that have landlines anymore, and those that do probably had theirs before cell phones even existed.

    @This Time Round:  Live in Pennsylvania, and yes we have a landline. We only have it b/c of the alarm system for the house…

    My parents still have a landline, but they also use it for business or else they probably would have gotten rid of it a long time ago.

    We do not have a landline nor plan on ever getting one, although sometimes I see how it could be useful.

    Nope, I gave up my landline.  We all use our cellphones.

    Landlines?  What kind of an old person do you think I am?

    We use a lot of Google Voice for for long distance calling between Canada/USA.

    @This Time Round:  I’m in California and SO and I only have cell phones. This is not ideal in an emergency situation, though. I know if we wanted to foster a kid we’d have to have a landline.

    We just have cell phones. We didn’t see a point in having a land line. It’d just be an extra bill we really don’t want or need.

    We’re in Ohio and we only have cell phones. I think if we have kids we will probably look into some kind of landline as I don’t plan on getting them cell phones until they are teens.

    We don’t, but I think we will get one once we have children. I don’t plan to buy my 7-year-old a cell phone (they have to be at least 10 for that! Wink) so how will their friends call them otherwise?

    Until a couple of hours ago we ONLY used a landline. We live in the family home (DH + me + FIL + MIL + SIL) and there is a shared landline. We are in a itght financial spot and trying to be responsible with our money, so waited until we felt it was necessary. We now are the proud owners of a prepaid flip phone which only calls and messages, so DH has a way of contacting in emergencies when commuting in the snow!

    We do intend to work until we are out of this “rut” then get the world’s fanciest phones, especially as my last one was an iphone, that silly Japan won’t release the codes for to get  unlocked in the US.

    We use cell phones, skype, google hangouts, and occasionally facetime!  The internet is so convenient.  I use google talk whenever I work from home and need to call into conference calls too (free!).
