    Here it is.................I'm going to drop my land line. I'm scared. Is there life after a land line? After I port my number over to the cell.....will life be the same? Will I survive this major change in my life? I only talk on the phone less than three hours a month and no texting.

    Just make sure that your cell phone has enough strength in the area that you lived to work as a land line. I thought mine did an unfortunately I barely can get reception and I have to get close to a window sometimes to get my messagesicon_eek.gif. You can get sort of a mini-booster antenna from your carrier which I have not done.

    In view of this, I opted digital phone through my cable as a back-up when I am at home.

    I dropped my land line, DSL and Direct TV a couple of months ago. I only used my land line to let people in the gate at night but now I just give them the code and if someone gets the code that I do not want to have it, I can change it over the internet. I had my DSL on the land line also, but now I use a wireless laptop.

    In 1995 I realized that land lines would soon be history. I was working in Hanoi and saw that Vietnam had no interest at all in either expanding their landline network or doing much to maintain what was already there. All of the investment was in cell networks. I have often lamented that rural Vietnam has better cell service than most of the New Hampshire seacoast!

    Dude, I'd be in the same shape as you if I were dropping my landline. I've dreaded the thought. I'm from New York so terrorism is always in the back of my mind. Landlines are more reliable when there are world and/or social crises. This means I will probably keep my landline until kingdom come.

    Not only am I dropping my land line, I'm giving up my land line number (too many marketers calling cause I had it listed as a business line.) That means I have to update a gazillion accounts, and tell friends. But I'm almost done already. Nice to be able to do everything online.

    Still, I'm pretty scared. There's a certain comfort in a land line. But I rarely talk on the phone, or fax, so it's a savings I will enjoy.

    we're keeping landline in my home.
    For one thing , long convos on the phone are better done on a standard phone till the debate over electromagnetic issues are cleared up with cell phones .

    In the old days cells used to be tied to the floor with a piece of string. This was to stop people texting when they drove.

    Oh come on... I dropped my land line about 4 months ago and switched the number, making it my cell. Its been in the family since I was 6.

    Haven't missed it at all Vic.

    We still keep a landline - mostly for elderly relatives who'd get confused if they suddenly had to start calling on our mobile numbers.

    I've been living without a landline since 2005. I don't miss it. I don't need it. And, it's sooooo 20th century.
