    So AT&T finally pissed me off to the point of canceling my local home and long distance. Do I need to go crawling back, or to Comcast or to whoever?

    I mean, it's not unusual to go with only cell phone, right?

    We finally live in an area with good enough cell reception that we don't need a home phone. Cell phone is working just fine for us, although out of habit, I still walk in the door looking for the answering machine to check for messages.

    Haven't had a home phone since 2001. Absolutely no need for it when I have free long distance on my cell phone.

    Haven't had a land line since 2006. Wouldn't even think of getting one again.

    Thanks. I'm not used to feeling like the old dude reluctantly embracing new technology.

    I love my land line!

    Get off my lawn!

    (helps me keep my cell phone plan at the lowest level, because i just use my landline during daytime hours before work and on my days off)

    People still have landlines?

    I can see one for a family, but individuals? Not me. For ages.

    I would cancel mine if I thought the kids could keep their cell phones charged and with them.

    Haven't had a land line in many years. Haven't had one occasion where I wished I had.

    The kids keep busting or losing the cordless handsets, but those are a lot cheaper than the cell phones.

    And with the bundle packages most cable companies offer, you can keep a landline for about $10-20.
