    Still on a land line, huh? Otherwise he’d need to use the other thumb.

    A dial phone? Get with the times!
    (ever notice how they say that your call cannot be completed as dialed, even though phones nb longer have dials?)

    I like my land-line. It’s never dropped a call on me. When I can say the same for cell service I might switch, but today is NOT the day. I’m a luddite; I also don’t get the appeal of sending a two-minute text and waiting for a reply when you can accomplish so much more with an actual one-minute phone conversation.

    I agree the texting is stupid for carrying on a conversation. But it IS useful for sending a simple message, and you do not want to be dragged into a long conversation. A message like, “I’M DIVORCING YOUR USELESS A$$!”

    I retired from the phone company in 2008 after 36½ years of working in central offices in the northwest suburbs of Chicago.
    Fully half the landlines have been removed mainly because the people who had them went to cellphone only. Also some have been removed for non payment due to the trashing of the economy by the thieves of wall street.
    @hollie2009ad, not necessarily, if your phone is on pure cable from the central office to you, and the cables don’t get damaged, you will have service during a widespread power failure as long as the central offices all have diesel fuel. But if your phone is on a neighborhood box fed from the CO by fiber optic cable, the box has power supplied locally and when the rechargeable batteries run down you phone will go dead until the company brings a portable generator to the box (the “box” could be an above ground box or a below ground vault called a CEV).

    Texting also handy for notifying various relatives spread throughout the country that you are okay after a severe storm passed through

    Not always. Cell towers can lose power too, or be so overloaded they won’t accept any more calls.

    Nostalgic isn’t it?
    Don’t see many payphones either.
    Ever notice how software still uses a ‘diskette icon’ for ‘save file’?

    After Hurricane Katrina, no cell phones were working, but the land line was! It was difficult to get thorugh, with so many people using it, but eventually you could. Cell phones did not work until you got about 150 miles out of the city. We were going to a relative’s house and could only call her to tell her we were on our way when we got close. So much for cell phones…

    I have a cell for when I’m out of the house – insurance on the road, IF I’m not in a “dead zone.” I have a 10-foot coil on the land line, plus a 10-foot cord to the wall, and a 25-foot cord on the other phone. Like truecanadianliberal said, no “dead zones” in the house. And no wasted time looking at texts.
