When you have kids, have you found it important to have a home phone or land-line?

Thinking about getting a land-line or home phone. Is it worth the expense (in addition to the cell phones we already have)? What is the home line useful for?

  • Never really thought about it. I always had a home phone and a cell phone. I use my home phone to call land lines and my cell to call other people on their cells. Works for me!

  • Nope. DH and I both have a cellphone and we think that is plenty. We don't see the need for a land line. Even our in-laws finally gave theirs up about a year ago.

  • My daughter and I both have cell phones only. Everyone knows these numbers and in case of power outage - they always work... since they are always charged. AND we have car charger for them.

  • I always have a landline. I do still use my cells but I think landline is best for me so My son always knows where the phone is and also for the 911 service. it doesn't work very well for cells. If there was a fire or something and you couldn't give the exact address they will find the house

  • My oldest daughter is 12, it's nice having the land line so her little friends don't blow up my cell phone!
