I think the only reason for a landline is a backup for if power are internet are out, but phonelines are still operational. But you must have an old-school phone that doesn't require electric. And your "Land-Line" can't be internet based, like with a cable package.

I move every few years and if we have cable, I'll set up a phone. Otherwise no.

We have a house phone, but it is a VOIP, not a true land line I guess.

There are land lines and then there are land lines.

We stopped having phone service delivered through the copper pairs about 2013.

For a while, my folks and I both had phone service through the cable company. It was split off from the video cable and patched into the premise wiring.

What I have now is a Verizon home phone connect device. It's a dongle that picks up the cell signal and converts it to a POTS phone. It runs one phone that we use in conjunction with the security system. However, I could have just as easily plugged it into any phone jack in the house and used it to serve all the phones in the house.

We don't, but in this day and time, a true wired landline very well be more secure than any cell, package, VOIP, etc.

Gave it up this January... Centurylink wanted $600/year for a basic land line with caller ID. just shy of 50-years with that number. I told the girl when I called to cancel that they had killed the goose that laid the golden egg...she didn't have a clue as to what i was trying to tell her!

Centurylink owns all the land lines by me too. Service was customer service was horrid. Even after we got cell service I kept it for emergencies, and convenience. But the quality of the lines was crap, trying to get anyone out to work on them when they went out was a joke and I was paying $55 a month + long distance for the privilege of having it. Felt weird at first not having it, still go to check the answering machine when I get home sometimes and missed calls haha.

Yep, still have a land line.

Cell phone service is "spotty" out here.

Have an old "dumb phone" (FLIP phone) for emergencies.

We had one until 10 years ago. We both used cells and the land wasn't worth it. Then my MIL moved in with us. She couldn't ever figure out the concept of a cell so I had the land hooked up again and she paid the difference. We have a small local phone co. and we got the same old number. Since we have fiber optic internet through them, they set it up as a VOIP. We couldn't tell the difference between the VOIP and a regular land line. MIL lived with us for 4 years then moved on to live with another daughter. We had the land removed again. It wasn't expensive but it was still a waste.


Sin wouldn't be so attractive if the wages were paid immediately.
