Land line or cell phone?

I find cell phones distracting and would rather have a land line phone. We stopped using cell phones about 8 months ago and I love it. You don't have a ring that is constantly around you. When I had the landlines put in my kids didn't know how to use a regular phone and I found it hilarious. One of my sons said so mom where is the talk button again.

  • LOL. I didnt get a cell till I was 18, got it for work. Hate it. Always ringing and beeping. Wish I could just have house phone. People expect you to answer or text back right away. I turn it off at night and wake up to 20-30 texts!!!

  • Cell Phones... why have a landline if my phone is always on me?

  • I have never had a cell phone and do not plan on getting one any time soon. I don't even answer my land-line unless it is family and something important.

  • We've always had a landline. we have a fax machine so we need it. We also give out that number for certain things so our cell phone isn't ringing all the time. I don't give out my cell unless it's a way to keep in touch with our kids. My Hubby is the only person besides my Sister that calls me on it. I hate talking on the phone, house or cell. I also DON'T like to text, and if someone sends me one, I will call them back. It pisses some people off, and it keeps them from texting me anymore.

  • I have not had a land line since I moved out of my parents house. They are now cell only just like us. I find no reason for a land line.

  • cell bc u can take it anywhere

  • Both! I like to have access to real 911 not e-911 while at home. In an emergency a land-line will be much easier for my 4 year old to use, as there is no "talk" button. I also sometimes need to use our fax.
    I also like having the texting ability of a cell phone so I can keep in contact with my younger sister.
