I have a landline phone but only because it's part of my broadband package. I tend to use it when I'm working from home and have a conference call as the reception is more reliable especially for long conversations.
We only use our mobiles for certain things, and we really like to keep the land line.It's also less expensive....if you have to wait on line for a while.
My land line will stay loner than any mobile phone, that's for Sure!..I'm over also the mobile going dead.
It's a 'keeper' with me.
The last time I had a land line, it was because it was required to have one to get highspeed internet. I think that was 6 years ago, might be longer than that, I don't really remember. I was happy to have it gone when I cancelled it. I didn't really have a need for it when I had my cellphone, so getting rid of a bill was a great option.
I do not have a mobile NOT because i'm old thank you very much.
I do not have a mobile because i like to make arrangements with people and stick to them.
I like to talk to people when i go to a restaurant and not be hunched over a screen tapping away.
I do not have a phone because i do not need to have a GPS locater in my pocket where ever i go.
I do not have a mobile phone just because the whole world expects me to own a mobile phone
Yes, its a part of my broadband package. In addition, it gives me the facility for free calling to my home country as well as throughout Australia. Since I work from home, I end up using my landline for calling more than using my mobile phone.
Yes I love my landline.... it is much cheaper to make calls and is not charged by the minute unless you have to ring a mobile etc.....
If I had to use my mobile all the time for long calls I would be broke lol
Oh yes I do.Who knows maybe one day it will be an antique piece and I might auction it :) or so I think !
Well on a serious note, I do have it because Telstra has this goof offer to make unlimited international phone calls for a price of about $15 per month.That's a bargain considering the calls I make to my mum and sister .
Yes, we still have a landline as that is I guess what we knew our complete package to be. We get free national calls with our landline and our computers run off it. I don't think we'll be changing anytime soon.
I used to work in a call centre and we regularly confirmed contact numbers with customers. 98% of the time they were mobiles. I wondered if I could ever part with my landline. I guess the only reason I had it was that if any elderly relatives needed to call, they wouldn't be charged a high rate. Now the elderly relatives have passed away, so too has my land line number. I figured the amount of the monthly fee was half the charge of mobile provider service. I don't miss not having it at all now.
I have a landline because we need it for the internet but no-one has the number and I never use it. Most of the time there isn't even a phone plugged in. We got rid of it because of all the telemarketers calling right on dinner time.
I dont but am thinking about it, mainly because its cheaper than the mobile and most of my calls are made at night so makes sense. in the day its mainly texting from the mobile. Also in an emergency good to have a landline.
I have a land line so relatives in the UK can ring me, and vice-versa. It's cheaper thru my isp as it is for national calls. Also I have the occasion to call 1300 numbers (Centerlink) and my mobile provider charges by the minute! I had a bill for $200 once and nearly had a heart attack but Vodaphone explained it wasn't a local call charge and assisted me with it. They're not all that bad :-)
Yes. My telco package is free local calls & I make hundreds' each month, so worthwhile keeping!
It has 'speaker' facility, which makes having to answer ALL those automated questions a lot easier.
I use mobile when have to ring another mobile. Cheaper.
Yes and we intend to keep it. We can rely on a decent reception which is more than we get with the mobile phones a lot of the time. The mobiles tend to get misplaced or the battery needs recharging. I would hate to rely solely on them.
Yes, our internet package came with it, all FREE calls to EVERYWHERE in Australia & o/s, as well as mobiles, anytime, anywhere. The only trouble was ‘they’ changed our phone No. We tried & tried to keep our lovely old No we’d had for 34 years, but was told that was not possible, so it was changed & they gave our old No to someone else!
I moved out of the parents home in 2012.... I have NEVER since had a landline.... only mobile....
Landlines are not necessary anymore, with such great deals on mobiles.
I get free calls and texts from 6pm to 6am everyday to every number in Australia!
We do. Mobile service can be patchy here at times so it is good to have a landline. Apart from a phone system like the one in the photo, we also have an antique timber phone mounted on the wall. Most of the time we don't plug it into the phone socket because it's ring is so loud. We have it in case the power goes out so we are not left without a phone. When NBN finally makes us connect it will become redundant, which is a bit sad to me.
