Do you still have a land line?

One of the vehicles was on its side? And no one was hurt? Are you just toying with us? No one walks away from such an accident without some sort of injury.

I believe an I Phone is limited to certain carriers, but I may be wrong.

Well, this person did. Another person stopped, who was an off duty paramedic and said he was thrown about a bit, but no broken bones or head injury. I watched him climbed vertically out of the cab of the truck, and he seemed fine. It wasn't high speed, rather the driver noticied to late there was a work crew with barricades there, which you had to weave around. He swerved, it had just started raining, and that's all she wrote.

Of course the paramedics came, that goes without saying.

Always had a land line when I lived in that big city on the East Coast. But I also had dial-up service for my 'puter (later switched to DSL, still need phone jack). Since moving to Hawaii we no longer have a land line. Sglass and I each have our mobile phones. My 'puter is on Time/Warner cable, Sglass uses Verizon wi fi for hers. We see no need for another damn' expense in the form of a land line.

Interesting. It seems that most of you have both land line and cell, but those in urban areas who have cell only are very happy with that.

Still listening and thinking...

I think you've got only two of those checking in - the rest of us urbanoids are cell/landline combo people.

@Eva,
I also have a land line and a cell phone and I'm in an urban area.
Like Thomas, I call abroad a lot and need the land line. Besides my phone number is very easy to remember and I would hate to give it up.

@chai2,
If your willing to kill the warranty on the iPhone, you can jailbreak/hack into the iPhone and go with another service but as soon as Apple finds out (via a software update or firmware update) they'll brick your phone aka turn your phone into a very expensive paperweight (until you figure out another hack to fix your iPhone from that predicament which it will start working again until Apple bricks your phone once again).

I don't have a land line but Alex does. I use SKYPE for long distance which is 2 cents a minute to the places where I phone. If you call to another computer, it's free. All you need is a headset if your computer doesn't have a microphone. Cheaper than our Teleus Long Distance service. And for the cell, you can get free long distance using Yak.

New York City checking in.
I haven't had a land line for the past ten years. During that time there have been three blackouts, a couple of huge blizzards and the attacks of 9-11. Always had service when I needed it.

I might add, we put together a contact list for the residents of our building last year. There are 52 apartments, most with at least two residents. Almost everybody had one, if not two, email addresses. The same with cellphones numbers. I think I remember maybe four apartment which listed only a land line.

Columbus checking in.

We had no cell phone in the family until very recently -- now I have a Blackberry which is mostly used for email/ texts but can be used to make calls, too (20 cents/ minute).

We use the landline pretty often. We've had several power outages where the landline was crucial (and friends with only cell phones were stuck).

Got rid of the land line in 2007. At the end it was just a reservoir for sales calls. I've only had one sales call on my cell in 2 years...and it was in Spanish.

@panzade,
if it wasn't for sales calls on my land line phone, nobody at all would ever call me. I would be lonely and alienated.
