Most likely to become obsolete for the normal family as millennials and the new generation always have their smartphones on them. My parents do still have one though

Yes. Basically another way for my wife's friends to access her.

It has been 15 years since I had a landline phone.

Get your facts first, then you can distort them as you please.

For personal use they are irrelevant.

Absolutely essential in the office though. The most robust method available for talking with colleagues in different offices.

Effin right, and for conference calls nothing beats a plain vanilla dial-in for landlines. Skype, Webex, Zoom, et al are cancer.

I have a landline and I still use it. I can't think of any reason why I prefer using it at home instead of my cellphone, but I do.

Yes- a lot of my friends and family still call me on my home phone. I sometimes give my home number to places I don't want to call me on my cell. Prefer not to be accessible 24/7.

I got TWO phones, one for the BITCHES, one for the DOUGH.
