Well I won't be getting a home phone any time soon now that I have a cell. My dad refuses to get a cell though so I don't know about being a thing of the past aside from the fact that my dad is a fossil.

No, I still need my home phone, it's cheaper to phone a landline than a mobile.

no i'd still get a home phone. that way i can pay less with the cell company for less minutes, AND my tivo runs through it

We used to keep a land line specifically for the TiVo, but with the new ones they just connect to your wireless network so we said adios to it!

No, sometimes they are cheaper than cell phones, and not everyone wants a cell phone.

Yes. I know quite a few people who don't even have a home phone. They use their cell phone for everything.

Land lines will disappear one day even if some people still want them. There will soon be not enough of those people to keep the companies going. I've lived in places where land lines aren't even available, and most places, people won't even do business with you unless you have a mobile.

My husband and I do not have a home phone, just our individual cell phones. No need to have a land line.

They might, since I moved out of my parents' house I've stopped using a home phone and replaced it with a cell.

I think families with children will tend to keep home phones.

I haven't had a home phone since 2003, and I've never had a cell phone.

i think alot of people are abandoning land lines for cell phones

We use our land line for our fax machine and DSL. I can't see getting rid of it any time soon...
