I Canceled My Land Line Today - How many of you are going 100% cellular?
Today was a turning point in QueenOfCalifornia History. I called AT&T and had them turn off our land line- The cost was $21.63 per month and we have not used that line for about 3 months.

We have 4 iphones - (there are 4 of us and so this makes sense) But no one uses the land line... It is a strange feeling since all my life, I am 52, I have had a phone in the house.

Adios land line. :woohoo:

2. I can't - I need it for the alarm system link to the cops/fire dept
It's a requirement of my home owner's insurance.

The person at AT&T asked me if I had an alarm...

I told her we do in fact have one...

67. I just had ADT installed, and they have a cellular device
Edited on Fri Jun-12-09 05:18 PM by superduperfarleft
hooked up in the basement that doesn't require a landline.

I've been cell-only for years, and just recently added VOIP for work, which ADT (for good reason) doesn't use.

87. Cellular links are available.
Contact a local alarm installer. They should be able to find a system that works in your area.
It is actually more secure.

Most thieves are smart enough to recognize the phone company box.



The boxes are usually "locked" with a thin metal clip. Snip the clip, open the box, unplug the phone.
What do you think they will cut first. No line = no alarm.

12. That's fine but just so you know
cell phone providers are not under any kind of regulation or law to force them to provide service at all times like land lines. If there is a massive earthquake or other natural disaster then your cell service may be disrupted for days or even longer. Land lines on the other hand are required and will be fined if there is a service outage. When the lights go out there will normally be dialtone at the jack- of course if you only have a wireless phone that will be dead since it requires AC to work.

BTW no requirement for internet phones to work either.

32. Yep, I know this for a fact - been though many hurricanes, tornadoes, and bad storms.
Land lines were back within days if not hours, whereas cell phone service was nonexistent for sometimes MONTHS. I cannot count the times when the electricity was out and I had no cell phone service, while my land line worked perfectly.

83. I Live In Florida & Agree With You... And While I Will Never Be Able To Prove
this, I HAVE wondered for a long time now how SAFE cell phones are. There is no proof that cancer can be linked to cell phones, or none that I know of, but I have been aware of more people contracting brain cancer than before.

I know 3 people who have died in the past five years of it. Two of them were under 40, so it just makes me wonder. Could just be the environment we live in too, but I don't know.

13. I have two small children.
I won't be canceling my land line in case either of them ever has to dial 9-1-1, but are so scared they can't remember their address.

Landlines can provide that - cell phones only give you "about here" locations.

The reason we kept the land line this long was just for the reason you cited - I do understand.

95. However, if the power goes out
so does the cell phone tower. I experienced that firsthand during Hurricane Ike last year. There was some cellphone reception, but most of it was really bad when it worked at all. GPS would be no different. Plus, personal civilian GPS is not as accurate as some like to think. Only applications that truly require accurate GPS (like surveying, military and scientific applications) get the most accurate GPS information.

52. Solution:
Get one of the "free" phones from your carrier and add it to your plan. Keep the phone at home in its charger.

It'll cost you about $10/month and you'll always have an emergency phone at home.

Cheaper than a land line, and eliminates your problem.

15. I avoid using cell phones as much as possible.
Edited on Fri Jun-12-09 03:33 PM by Mika
In my practice I'm seeing a serious upswing of tumors on the side of the head people hold their cell phones.

I advise my patients to reduce their cell usage, and to not let their young kids jabber away on them.

on edit: I should mention that I'm a dental surgeon.

I use a bluetooth to talk on the phone... Also - None of us use the phone very much... We just are not into talking on the phone.

But what you say is interesting... Yikes.

76. Do you have any idea how the blue tooth piece connects to
the cell phone- no wires must be magic- Oh yeah I guess it uses RF - radio frequency and it's beaming right through your brain.

118. But the BT headphone's power level is a milliwatt or so compared to the cell phone's 600 milliwatts.
The BT headset's radio only has to reach as far as your mobile phone
(two or three feet away) whereas the mobile phone's radio has to reach
all the way to the cell site, which may be several miles or more.

36. I stopped using the earpiece on my cell and my headaches went away
I now only use the cell phone holding it in my hand. And I've requested everyone to call me on my landline. Keeping the cell for car/emergency/travel but would prefer not to use it.

59. I have a friend who has one of those Teddy Kennedy tumors
He's not doing too well, either.

He was an early adaptor to cell phones (almost twenty years ago) due to his work, which required a lot of travel and constant communication with the "home office." He was always on the phone. And he always holds his phone on the side where he has the tumor.

I don't know if it's a coincidence, or what.

72. i don't use cellphones at all
We've always had a land-line to the house, and it serves us just fine. We never ANSWER IT (using our own answering machine to "screen" all incoming calls). I hated carrying a beeper/pager when "on call" in the Navy. I retired nearly 20 years ago, and swore I would never again "be tied" to any communication device... I'm not, and I've never looked back.

Thanks for mentioning the health hazards... most people (make that EVERY PERSON) that I know who use cellphones, SCOFF at the mention of health hazards... and far too many people use their cellphones while driving (I don't care if they're hands-free users or not... IMO: DRIVING A TON-PLUS WEAPON requires one's full attention).

...just my 2cents

18. Only reason I haven't cancelled mine
is that I live in Tornado Land (we have led the nation in tornado deaths for the past 10 years - the new tornado alley) and cells don't work during that kind of weather. Even the TV crews could not call the station during those bad times. It's really upsetting when you have a family member out and can't get hold of them. It would be even worse if they could not call the house when they found a land line. So I guess the chicken little in me will keep ours for now.

23. I had a major electrical house fire a few year ago
My phone lines burned and the phone service went out just about the time I discovered the fire.

Couldn't find the damn cell phone anywhere. I'd left it in my bedroom although I thought it was in my purse. Thankfully, my next door neighbor was home and called the FD.

Not that it helped me in that particular instance, but I like the idea of having at least one old corded phone in the house that can't get lost no matter how hard I try.

33. Well.....
We have one each.

I insisted that our kids have their own phones for emergencies and because when they are at a friends house I can call them etc...

In a fire a cell phone is much more useful than a land line.

find the damn little thing when you are panicking as your house is burning.

24. I have been cell-phone only for 12 years now.. since 1997
Graduated High School.. and never really stayed in one place long enough to want to deal with getting the phone turned on & off every time I moved. Now i'm in a home I own.. but why bother? My husband & I just use our cell phones anyway... so no landline for us.

I didn't have a cell phone (well, my husband did) until like 2003 (?) and I got one a few years ago when we decided it was pointless to pay for a landline when for $10/mo we could just add another cell.

Don't you remember that knock-off of a Nokia in The Matrix?
(Okay, that was 1999, but by 1996 I owned a reasonably-small
AMPS cell phone.)

25. We use our land line for some local calls and computers only - we just
went to the cell phoned for all long distance use and for GP calls.
Expect to save a lot of money just by doing this.
(We both have pre-paid cells - no contracts, more minutes than we ever use, still way cheaper than the phone company.)

124. We use Net 10. 10 cents a minute. We both have their phones, too...
Mine was $30, including 300 minutes - My wife got the fancy one with the flip top and cam and 400 minutes for I think $40. There is no contract, you can order minutes instantly online etc. If you don't use it for a while, you can go back online and order more minutes without any kind of penalty or similar bullshit. I think it's very hard to beat.

It's always 10 cents a min. and you can call Europe for 15 cents a minute.
I have T-Mobile which is very good, but you don't get the cheap overseas rate. Net 10 uses T-Mobile and AT&T.

126. We started using it some time ago, and have never had a problem with it.
It is very easy, no bullshit, pay as you go, no contracts.
We had stopped by an AT&T phone store, and they tried to sell us a plan that was way more time than we would ever use.
They told us, well, just talk more.

Fuck you, pay me.

131. Another alternative is T-Mobile annual plan which is $100. for 1,000 min...
and after that you can add as little as $10. and that lasts for another year. I have this plan .. great for those of us who don't use it a lot.

26. we went cell only a few years ago. actually, at least five i think.
my sister shut off her landline and went cell only. the home phone was shut off yesterday. they've had that same number for a very long time. I was surprised when she told me she was doing it, but it makes sense.

I do have magicjack, though, attached to our computer. This is mainly so that if my 10 year old happens to get here before I do she can call me. I do not believe she needs a cell phone at her age. Even if 'everyone else has one'.

There is nothing wrong with losing the land line if you don't use it. Why pay two phone bills!! It is strange for awhile, but you'll get used to it. The only problem is when you misplace your cell phone and can't find it. LOL! but, i guess that could happen with a cordless phone.

103. it works well for what it is. sound is ok and all. the only problem that we had
was that the part that plugs into the usb broke off, and they wouldn't replace it for us. it was under the year too, so it should have been covered. the response was that we broke it or something. so bob ordered a new one and paid for it again (i guess). he just made sure this time to have an adapter because the weight is too much for it. If you do that you should be fine.

120. Luckily, the newest iPhone (software?) has the "lost phone" problem licked!
If you've misplaced your iPhone in your house or car, then via
MobileMe, you can command your iPhone to start sounding off
and flashing its display, even if the phone is in Silent mode.

37. I'm about the same age and would love to sever my connection with a land line asap
We are extremely remote out here, but our cell phones work very well out here, even when I'm hiking even more remotely than where I live. My problem is the internet. Currently use dialup, which does suck, but I'd spend more money if I cancelled the land line and went to Huges Net/other sat for the internet connection. Verizon bought our local carrier, and I'd like to try the wireless net with them and my computer, but again I think that too will cost me more than keeping this crappy land line (doesn't always perform perfectly as an internet connection).

We lose our phone service several times each winter for a few days when the conditions are icy, because one of the relay stations is on a remote mountain top, powered by solar, and they have to take a snow cat up to clear the ice off.

38. I am, but not because I think having cell only is better.
It's because the quality is shit and they can't install DSL to save their lives.

A little faster and video...but the rest will be available for the 3G in 5 days when they release the 3.0 software update.

45. I'm seriously thinking about it!
I don't use the phone much, and Verizon here in NY charges me over $60 a month for my landline. I figure I could save money by switching to a cell.

At the same time, I have to say, a family of 4 with an iphone each?!? Your latte is showing! ;)

48. It was a weird thing...
the 4 iphones.

It started with me buying my husband one for Xmas.

Then we promised our son that if his grades were excellent we would get him one... (he won)

My daughters grades are always perfect and so we couldn't show favoritism -- That would be wrong.

I had to have one. It is mandatory that I get the cool shit.

I know... everyone that knows us thinks we are crazy for this...

66. I had a dedicated landline for my fax.
That's kinda why I dragged my feet on getting rid of the 2 landlines I have. But I have a long distance service (www.onesuite.com ) that also handles faxes. You send and recieve faxes via the internet. Incoming faxes get sent through a phone number that redirects to my business e-mail address. Works better than my fax machine because I can save them without scanning on my computer. The only faxes I've been getting the past few years are for vacation deals and cheap medical insurance. All of my customers are pretty much fax free now. Sure is different than the way we used them 20 years ago...

So I dumped my lines a few weeks ago. It really was a waste of money to have cell phones and landlines.

50. Have to have one landline with the DSL
Edited on Fri Jun-12-09 04:03 PM by csziggy
Plus, even though we can SEE a cell tower from the top of the hill, we get zero cell reception on the east side of the hill where the house and barn are. So a cell doesn't do us any good while home. That is why I have a Tracfone - don't need many minutes or fancy services.

Edited to add - We've had our landline number for over 30 years and I am used to it.

56. I wish I could get a land line for twenty bucks a month! For local
service, the best I can do at my cottage is thirty something. No caller ID, no nothing. Also, no competition for service.

I only keep the land line because it's attached to the alarm system, that will tell me if pipes are freezing or the place is burning down.

My family complained too much about it anyway--that they were always having to call my cell because they'd call my land line and it would be busy because I was online. They don't complain anymore.

Out in the country. The cellfones became alive out here in East Compostheap, Texas, about two or three years ago.

I cancelled my landline when I moved, since nobody called me that I wanted to speak to. Just junk calls.

Note: I'm using the spelling "fone" in honor of Don Martin of MAD Magazine fame, who invented the word "fonebone".

(I don't have cable, so it would actually cost me more to cancel my landline and add a cable net connection.) What has your experience been with Clearwire?

ETA my reasons for having no landline involve my privacy. I think it's insane to pay NOT to have your name listed in a directory. If I was listed, I'd be the only person with my last name in the phone book.

I pay $42.16 a month for my cellphone-- talk and text (which i do more than talk) and my parents pay $60/month for their landline they never use.

90. I'm giving it serious thought. Received my Verizon bill today and
I owe them $27.71 for $2.40 worth of calls.(local only). I use PowerNetGlobal for long distance and that is a great deal. Their bill is usually $3.00 or less per month. None of the big fees that are on the Verizon bill. I am not a phone talker and my kids are usually the ones that call me. I have a tracPhone for emergencies for which I pay $20.00 for 60 minutes. Those minutes keep accumulating because I don't really use that either but the kids insist.

I admit there is a certain amount of security with a land line but with $$$ scarce, I'm beginning to wonder if it is worth it.

I know the math does not add up, it is just the security issue that has me on edge for some reason.

91. I'll keep my land line.....
I really have no need for a cell phone, I'm sure there are some things I could use it for. Like when I'm at the store and I can't find my brother I could always call him up and ask "Where you at?" but that hardly seems worth it. It would serve me for only small things like that which is why I've never gotten one, I can manage without one.

100. Considering it.
Right now, it serves a purpose. The ringer is turned off, so we never even hear it ring.

I look at the blinking light once a day to check messages. This is the number I give to all business contacts, and any time my phone number is necessary for anything at all.

My cell phone is restricted to family and friends only. The land line exists as a privacy screen. There's probably some sort of voice-mail or answering service I could get that would do away with the need.

101. I would love to, except...
We need the line for DSL

Plus, we don't get a very good/reliable cell signal at my house. Maybe two bars if we go up to the second floor or just the right spot out in the yard...Otherwise the cellphone spends a lot of energy searching for signals it can't find and the battery goes dead in a couple of hours. Boo hiss!!!!

A couple of phone companies were talking about putting cell towers in down in town, but so far it's been nothing but a lot of hot air.

So we have the landline for the house, and cellphone for the car

oh well

Edited on Sat Jun-13-09 10:58 PM by Proud Liberal Dem
After my wife and I got our iPhones with 1500 anytime minutes (neither of us have a lot of people we talk with on a regular basis), unlimited mobile-to-mobile and nights & weekends, we simply realized that we didn't even need to bother with a land line. We decided to keep on my wife's former cell phone so that the kids could have it for emergencies at home after school but saw no reason to maintain (and pay for) a land line, particularly since our last land line service (Vonage) simply sucked and AT & T's prices for land lines were/are simply outrageous.

I have Vonage. I don't really consider it a "land line" because its not tied down to one location. When I moved, my home phone came with me -- same number and all. I've yet to find a cell phone that I could stand using for more than 10 minutes; they're uncomfortable against my ear and get hot really quickly.

I just couldn't justify the expense when I am abroad most of the time, unfortunately things got a little messy when Cingular disconnected me because I was roaming on T-Mobile too much. Cingular/AT&T has let their network in Orange County turn to shit. Doing okay with Verizon though and thinking I am going to switch to this when it becomes available in California.

Ever get stuck on hold for over an hour on a cell phone?

There are certain things that a landline is better for, like reaching emergency services.

Price of cell phone just keeps going up- landline is pretty predictable.

I live in Oklahoma, during bad weather and emergencies you need that land line. Cell phones won't work, lose battery power, or won't connect. Your cost was small compared to the problem you will have without a land line in as emergency.

127. I have a cell phone but use my land line for DSL, not phone service.
I get a good price for DSL and can receive calls on my land line. If my land line is used for outgoing calls, it costs 10 cents a minute. 911 calls are free.

Windstream Green Streak is what they call it. It's not on their site, you have to request it.
