  • We do not have a land line. We have two cell phones. I wasnt sure about it at first...but now I dont miss our land line AT ALL!!!

    Its cheaper and I havent found one thing I dislike about using only a cell phone.

    I would suggest if doing this to go with a GREAT cell phone and cell phone provider..if its your only one it should be dependable!

  • I only have a land line. If we could afford unlimited anytime mins we would only have cells though as they are more convenient.

  • Our enhanced 911 is linked to our land line. I turn my cell off when I get home. I would rather use my land line.

  • We have a land line. We pay the cheapest we can for it. We have our internet hooked up to it and our alarm system too.

  • We have to have our cell phones because of family living out of state as well as hubby's job. We use Verizon and while we don't have 'unlimited' minutes or texts, we have a shared 750 minute plan and have NEVER gone over our minutes - EVER! I always have service, never have dropped calls and again - have NEVER gone over our minutes.

    I have internet through our local cable company for $35/month - and it is broadband.

    And NO LAND LINE!! We have saved that money now for 4 years... no need for it!

  • We only have cell phones. It works out great for us. The only thing is, some other people don't like it 'cause they get charged when they call our cell phones, but I don't understand how all that works.
