I have just taken out a contrac with my provider to get all my mobile, local, and interstate calls included for a $10 package, so yes, I use my landline all the time.
I also have a plan with my mobile but find that phoning other mobiles is very expensive and takes up a lot of my $160 per month allowance, so I figured this $10 extra plan ($20 in total) was worth it for me as a lot of my calls are to mobiles.
Since I became ill and had to stoip working,I decided that I no longer nbeeded my mobile phone,as I was at home so much of my time.So I have been on an excellent 'bundle' plan for Land- line and internet ever since!! I get all my calls except 13 and international numbers included in my monthly charge and have unlimited internet!! It works so well for me as my family are all in Victoria and my friends are all over the place!! I would be lost without my landline!
Yes. Most of our phone calls are from the landline. I prefer not to ring on the mobile as much as calls can be expensive, UNLESS the person you are calling has the same carrier, in which case it's free. We only have one acquaintance who only has a mobile, no landline.
Yes, I love using my landline phone. I always talk to my sister and brothers who all live interstate on my landline and I talk to friends on my landline. I also like it when other people call me on my landline, for some reason I prefer it and I wish that more people would call me on my landline.
Don't use the land line during the evening as the deal with my pre paid mobile gives me the calls for free between 6 p.m and 6 a.m so cheaper interstate. Do use land line for overseas calls but need to check if overseas calls are also included on my mobile plan.
No not often; about twice a week. We only use the mobile 3 or 4 times a week. Our internet provider changed our landline No we’d had for 37 years! We were very cross about that. It was changed about 2 years ago, & I still can/t remember our new No. Someone else now has our old No. We certainly tried to hang on to it!
More often than the mobile!
Elderly aunts and cousins without mobiles only ring the landline, which has message facility.
Why should they be expected to pay an absolute fortune because I have a mobile? Hardly fair, is it?
Further, dialing 1300 & 1800 number on mobiles and being On Hold for 20-45 minutes is expensive - so I always dial those on my land line - the cost is nil or 'peanuts'.
In emergencies, I use the LandLine - I know where it is in a panic, it never needs recharging, and never, ever, ever, ever 'drops out', go 'scratchy' on me or fall into a 'Black Hole'. It always works very well.
