In this day and age of mobile phones, do you still need the ugly landline phone?
No. I cannot even remember the last time I had a land line phone. I think they are definitely becoming obsolete.
I much prefer a landline, and only use my mobile for emergencies, such as calling a car breakdown service. I never talk for long on the mobile. You don't need to think about re-charging a landline, or wonder if you can get reception.
I have not used a landline phone in quite some time. Unless you consider IP phones a landline. Then I use one everyday at work. Personal use though is primarily through my mobile phone.
I would love to have a phone like the one in the picture. Yes, I prefer a landline. I live in an area where cell service is a little iffy.
A land line will work when the electricity goes off, unlike those telephones with remote receivers that have to have electricity to work Cell phones unfortunately have a nasty habit of not working in emergency situations.. I have made sure each floor of the house has at least one land line. When stormy weather takes out the electricity, I can telephone out for information or to communicate with neighbors.
Oh, nice to see a landline phone.. I would not mind having it... After maybe few years I can sell it for few million dollars!! :-)
I live in Louisiana. We get frequent hurricanes and we lose electricity. However, most of the land-line telephone service continues (most of the telephone lines are now underground). Secondly, if cell towers are knocked out of commission or you cannot recharge your battery, then the cellphone makes a good paperweight.
Finally, the quality of the sound on the landline telephones is better than any cell phone I have used.
One word of warning. I have a landline phone with three extensions, but the main unit has to be plugged into an outlet, so when the power goes out, it does not work. That is why I have an old slimline type telephone that uses no batteries that I plug in and worked even during Katrina and Rita.
I've never been a fan of phones. We keep a landline on the most minimal service billing. I don't like mobile phones. My head feels buzzy after I use it. I prefer texting or e-mail.
It must be 15 years since the last time I used one. I don't know anyone who has a land line phone.. not even my parents. But they're good if you live outside of coverage areas.
I haven't had a land line since 2008. I use cell phones,Skype and Gmail. As individuals are on the go, it just makes sense to carry your phone around with you. I don't have friends who have land lines. Using my cell phones, Skype and G-phones are more cost effective for me.
I will never get rid of my landline. It's not ugly either! Cell phones are a pain in the butt, and I hate when someone calls me on one. The sound breaks up, and I only get part of the conversation. I usually hang up! While cell phones are great for emergencies, I don't want to be "in touch" with everyone at every second of the day. It's intrusive to my life.
I see all these young people glued to their phones, and find it sad. They think they are "connected", but they have really lost the true connection to people. I truly feel bad for the people that "need" to take their phone with them all the time so they don't miss a call. My goodness, how did we ever survive in "the old days"?
We have both a land line and cell phones.
I like having the security of a back up, in case the cell breaks or isn't working for some reason.
Actually that is a cool landline. I seen one at a friends that was so old it now is antique, it was gold in colour.
I dont care either way. I guess cellphones are good for emergencies.
A landline is still important to me but off-course a modern kind of phone even though I have a cell phone and other modern devices I am still pleased with the landline.
Actually I don't have a landline since I last move a year ago. And in this WHOLE year I haven't had the need of a landline, so I guess the answer is absolutely not. I guess it depends on each person and his/her circumstances.

Do you still have a land line telephone at your home?

Why are we directed to turn off mobile phones while on a flight; and do you comply?Unless you are dedicated to hug the earth, you will have experienced the PA order to 'switch mobile phones off or reset them to Fly Mode'. At times this is inconvenient. Why do they do it, and how do you...
