Just as with xina, we too gave up our landline about three years ago and I've yet to miss it. My husband, son and I all have cell phones, so it was silly for us to also be paying for a landline account. Someone is always reachable. And you don't get those annoying political calls, even though you're on the do-not-call list.

Speaking of which, not charities but unsolicited calls, I made a big mistake of giving my cell phone # when I ordered something for X-Mas. I kept getting constant calls from just the one store regarding special offers. I only picked it up once at the beginning. I did tell them I wasn't interested in their promotions, then or in the future. They kept calling practically every freaking day. Of course I never answered, but it's so darn annoying!!!! Do they not have a clue if the phone is never answered that they're being avoided? Gah!!!! Needless to say, I'm never ordering from them again.

We kept it until my daughter graduated from high school and went to college. Even though she had a cell phone for most of high school, the calls coming in for school functions or teachers, or whatever were always listed on our landline. I couldn't wait to get rid of it. The sale calls would bug me the most. I haven't missed that line at all.
