Is there any really good reason to keep a home landline, especially if you already have a cell phone? I can definitely think of better things to do with that money.
Cell phones are fantastic inventions. What did we ever do before them when we wanted to meet up with friends, or have your significant other pick up some last minute groceries? Well, other than plan ahead. (Ahem.) Anyway. With cell phones being more and more prevalent, cheaper, more reliable, and convenient, why should you keep a landline? Here are a couple things you might not have considered.
Reasons — or, I should say, potential reasons. Not all of these will apply to you, certainly, some you may just be unconcerned with. But since you asked…
These are but a small sampling of reasons, and I’m sure others can think of more, and I’d be happy to see them as followup answers.
Each person and situation is different. Single, no kids, live alone? Sure, dropping your landline makes a lot more sense than for the working parents with latchkey kids at home. However, take a good look over the information presented above, check your bills, and make your own value judgment based on your own situation and priorities.
