With pretty much everyone having a cell phone these days, a lot of people are getting rid of their landline. Have you?

We've only had cell phones for about four and a half years now.

People stopped calling our landline when they knew they could get us on our cell phones, first try. The only people calling our landline at the end were telemarketers.

I live in the middle of nowhere so cell service can be unreliable. So I have the Magic Jack and also use a cell. The MJ is great for the most part but definitely has it's glitches. Not bad for $20/year though, and it emails you if you have a voice mail so you can just listen to it right on your computer. I love that feature!

We've never had a landline, just cell phones. I do think it would be kind of nice for people to be able to reach either of us, but we could never give up the cells so a landline is unnecessary. Even my parents don't have landlines anymore

I kept a landline for years just for the fax machine but now we have fax through email so we got rid of it a few months ago! Technology is amazing... I was 28 years old when I got my first cell phone. Now everyone has one!
