We thought about getting a landline, but we just didn't want to incur the cost. Its been OK: Limiting in some ways, but liberating in others. It's no fun when the mobile falls behind the couch when you know that it is turned off. It's also no good when Dr Laurel leaves her phone on silent all day!
But it is cheaper. We use Skype for long distance, and the cell for local calls. Plus, I don't know what it is about the psychology of mobile phones, but one can turn them off without feeling like you are betraying some basic law of humanity.
- Do you live unplugged?
- Could you or would you live without a Landline?
