    Have you given up your land line phone and using your cell phone now as your primary service?
    We are thinking about doing this.
    Wondering what the pros/cons are? Please share.

    I'm giving up mine simply because it will save $30.00 a month.

    Not yet, but I would like to. Why pay 2 phone bills. The only neg. I can think of is when to cell towers are down. That happens when we have big storms here in In.

    We gave us ours because we have 2 cell phones and my husband has a work phone as well. I think what I miss most is the clarity - sometimes I feel like the wind is blowing the towers -- and I miss holding it in the crook of my neck while I'm doing something else. The little cell phones drop so easily. I hate wearing an earpiece and my eyesight is getting worse with old age and playing with a cell phone isn't fun when I have to find my reading glasses to look at it. But we're saving money and I guess that counts, right? I'd go back to the corded phones in a flash if I could. Tough keeping up with technology.

    I keep our land line for my vollenteer work. I'm in charge of the Matthews Covered Bridge Festival craft and flea market so I really don't want all of the hundreds of calls I get to be on a cell phone. I would much rather have them contact me when I am home or leave a message. I keep a cheap pay as you go cell phone that only a few people have the number to.
