This week I am installing after 3 years a land line telephone. Anyone else regressing from wireless back to the old fashioned land line?
We've always kept our landline. I like it, for its reliability as well as for the internet/tv package price.
I have an expensive cell phone now with navigation and internet capabilities and all that. But I hate the sensitivity of the touch-screen and not much reason to even use all the features, which are too unstable anyway. But maybe they'll come in handy someday before I throw the thing away and go back to my pretty and user-friendly pink Razer.....
I've never progressed - I've always had a landline and don't plan on giving it up until there's a cheaper way to get reliable non-mobile broadband.
Yup, if you look at the figures, landline phones are a thing of past. These are surviving because of add-ons like DSL broadband and IPTV. Without these features, they may well have been obsolete.
There will not be too many new installations of landlines solely for the purpose of voice communication. And for newer regions like Africa, wireless technologies are prime choice. Landlines installations are too expensive these days (digging, laying of cable, high maintenance costs etc.)
Even though I need a cell phone, it's a missing part of my life right now. My land line with a portable phone are working fine for now as I really don't have time to go anywhere. I have had two service providers for the land line within the past three months.
The local telephone company leaves a lot to be desired so the phone is now part of a cable and internet package. Even though there are 3 working cell phones at the house most of the calls other than mobile to mobile are made on the land line.
I generally borrow one of the cell phones when I want to talk to someone who has mobile and no land line.
For six years a mobile phone was my only means of communication. I constantly worried about the radio waves damaging my brain. My mother died of brain cancer. Due to this replacing batteries was an every year affair. I always used speaker phone which kills batteries faster. I still only use speaker phone but now I am not replacing batteries.
I have been wheelchair bound for twenty years but no longer live alone so a cell phone is no longer as important as it was.

I find when I try and read a Hub from my iPhone, it won't load. I wonder if that is because the Hub is too long, or has too many photos. I give up until I can get to my computer.Seems I read (or maybe dreamed) our Hubs should be shorter to be easier to load from a mobile phone.Any...

Well, not just WHAT, you can also say, WHY would that be 'the ONE thing' you could change about your past? It may be an incident, a behaviour, an attitude, a day or a night..simply anything!
