We've only had cell phones for the last 8 yrs, or so. I'm thinking of getting a landline, for the younger kids to have for an emergency. My oldest has a cell (cheap track phone), that he rarely remembers to charge :/

Not currently. Earlier this year I cancelled it (I had the bundle with Verizon FIOS)... but I plan on getting a Magic Jack/ landline soon.

I added a cell phone to our plan for $20 a month. I figured that was less than what a landline would cost, and the younger ones can take it with on sleepovers, in case of emergency. (By youngrr I mean 12 and 9)

No, we've always had our cellphones.

Yes. We never got rid of ours. It's bundled with our cable and internet so it would cost more if we got rid of it and had to pay for cable and internet separately. Not only that but that's the number we give to people that we really don't want to have our number (stores and stuff). We almost never answer it.

We just canceled our landline a few weeks ago. There was no point in keeping it, we hadn't used it in months, waste of money for us. we will probably get it back when ds is old enough to be home alone.

This is our problem too.
