According to my brother, I'm the only old fashioned person left with having a landline still. The landline is a lot cheaper than any cell phone AND it is a requirement for at home customer service work. I since quit that job but I still have my landline. I've had my same number for 10 years now. My husband and I both have cell phones. We take them everywhere we go but in our area, service is not as great. We live in the hilly area of eastern ky. No matter the weather, our service whether it be landline or cell, are sketchy.
