    @This Time Round:  But do you have a cordless phone? The phone line will stay up but the cordless phone needs power, I think.

    We actually have an old style (non cordless) phone around the house and one time we plugged that in during a power blackout, I think.

    @This Time Round:  Do you know where you can still buy a basic landline phone?  Ours is all cable or whatever it’s called for phones, so we wouldn’t have any paid service if our power was out, but I want one just for 911 service.

    @This Time Round:  All I know is that our router is only plugged into the wall through a regular outlet, haha. That is the extent of my knowledge of our computer networking 🙂

    We live in Calgary and we only have cell phones. I haven’t had a land line in around 5 years

    My sister keeps nagging me to get a landline, (because we talk to eachother so much, it eats up my minutes on my cellphone,) but I’m trying to keep costs down, and not ADD bills to our pile.

    My parents only use their landline. Their answering machine is classic confused-70-year-old message too. At the end of my mom’s message, you can hear my dad in the background say, “Now what?” and my mom says, “then you press the…” and that’s the end of the message. Haha. 

    I feel like when/if my Fiance and I have kids someday, maybe we should get a landline? I don’t know.

    @MrsWilson2012:  +1

    This is us except that we have cox cable.  It was honestly cheaper for us to bundle and get the phone…and then they gave us free HBO.  

    But we never use the land line lol.

    @This Time Round:  also true of those of us who were preteens/young teens in the 90’s! (I was born in ’87) I would spend hours on the phone, sometimes nightly! And even when I was really little I loved the phone. I actually remember having phone conversations with my friend when I was 5. Fun times!

    We live in Nashville, and we both have cell phones. I use Skype when I’m talking to my friends and family in California and Washington.

    We just have cell phones. For us, it’s more convenient than landline.

    @This Time Round:  My parents still have a land line (I moved out in Feb) but usually only bill collectors call and maybe a few other people…in my apartment my fiance and I only have cell phones..my mother would say its important to have a landline and especially one hooked to the wall (with the cord) in case the power goes and and your cell dies you still have a phone to call people in case something happens…she has a good point but she also worries a lot…when Fiance and I eventually buy a house we still probably will just use our cell phones

    No landline, and never will. I’m sure that those will eventually become a thing of the past as the older generations die off. Nobody my age has one.
