    id love to have kept my land line but the price got to almost 60 dollars so we dropped it.
    they increase price and give worse service.

    The only argument I could make to keep and landline (full disclosure I don't have one either) is for 911. Address is immediately known so help can be dispatched if the requester is somehow incapable of speaking.

    Hey Moots, what's a fax?

    Haven't had a land line in 10 years and don't miss it at all. A dusty old relic of the past. The ONLY reason I could see to have one is if you use QWEST Connect for your internet service but that isn't a requirement obviously.

    Good point Mr. Moots; everything is becoming wire-less and 'in the cloud'.

    What about satellite phones. Right now they are more expensive but I bet they become more common in the coming years. They would be more reliable than the typical cell phones.

    Landline phones are dropping and so are landline faxes. We have been using FaxPipe which is a fax service out of Provo that delivers the faxes right to our email.

    Money savings are everywhere if you take the time to look.
