Mostly land line, at home and work. [In reply to] Can't Post

We have cheap cell phones that cost $7 a month if you don't use them much, which we don't. Mostly for calling the tow truck or when one of us is at the grocery store and needs to call home to see what we need. We keep our cell phones turned off most of the time; we'd had them for months before we figured out how to actually answer an incoming call.

Our land line's plan doesn't charge anything for calls in the US, and Beamer's not allowed to give her cell number to friends yet. MtM calls between our cells (and my sister's family) are free. What a world!

No more land line... [In reply to] Can't Post

We have been without a land line for a couple of years now. There are three of us in the house that have smart phones (the fourth in the house is 5-months old and has teething toys), so we cancelled the land line a while back. At one point we thought it would be cheaper on long distance, so we brought the land line back...but it lasted two months. We never used it, and cancelled it again. For long distance we have deals on the smart phones, or use Skype, or email, or texting.....we are very close to getting rid of traditional television also. I am a sports fanatic so it is still tough to get reliable, live sports on the internet without paying pay-per-view type costs for each and every event. The free sites are better than ever, but still not 100% reliable. When I can get all my sports via the internet cheaper than my cable television bill, we will cancel the cable.

As for what phones we use - I am an Android user, the wife is an Iphone fan and the 13-year old boy is a blackberry user....

We use both but [In reply to] Can't Post

I would not cancel our landlines because when we lost electrical power in those big storms (in the northeast U.S.) last year, both times everything (including the cell phone service) went out, except the landlines.
They were the only things that still worked.

So we have both, we use both and we're keeping both :-).
