Do you have a cell phone and a landline?

I have both. I have to have our landline to have my dsl for internet. But I use my cell phone the most. All my kids and husband have the same cell phone company so we can make unlimited call on our cell phones. I very seldom use the landline but we have to have it in case of emergencies or someone that doesn't have the cell phone number. What about you?

i have both landline i think is default since everyone is on the site...or else how are they going to visit this site? it's just a matter of using the landline for calling friends i mostly use my cellphone because of the phone book but for like business (calling for bills, paying for something, etc...) i use my landline because i sometimes have problem with my cell and the bad thing about cell is the company you have, you could have a crappy company which doesn't really get you signal (t mobile, eh hem..) and most ppl don't have a lot of minutes on their cellphone, so that's just gonna waaste minutes

I mostly use my cell phone, I know if my landline rings it is telemarketing or something's wrong.

I think the land lines have less rediation so for that reason I do have both. Although the cell phone is more convient it is more advantages to have a land line as well. I have a home business and I need the land line for my fax

Yes I do have both. that is the same as me I have mine for dsl as well. Yes me and my husband and youngest daughter have the same company so as to receive cheaper calls. But when I need to call someone I do not use the cell phone that much I will use the landline once I am off the computer.

We have both, mostly we use the cell phones, like you all our kids have the same company so we can talk often. We do still have our landline, though we have been talking about getting rid of it. We don't use it much.

Yes, if we could figure out a cheap way to keep landline for dsl and nothing else, then that would help budget a lot.
