Do you have a home phone number?

My friend just told me that his family still has a home phone. It kinda blew my mind a bit. I've exclusively used cell phones for like 6 years now. I wonder if they use AOL dial-up as well.

Still got a home phone so that the cellphone doesn't get spammed with toll free and whatnot.

It's useful when it comes to using it on forms where you need to put down a phone number but don't want to give your cell phone.

I haven't had a land line since last year. I find my cell phone easier cause I could get caller id, text, send pics, look on the internet, block numbers, and do various other things on it that I couldn't do on my land line without getting extra charges.

For years no. Like, probably about 10. We only got one again about 3 or 4 months ago. We never use it. None of us even remember the number. It came free with the cable subscription or something.

For those that do: Ey bay BAY! How's about you hook me up with dem digits?

No, but that shit is older than 2005. I think we got rid of our house phone in 2002 or 2003.

Technically, yes we do have a home number, but there hasn't been a phone hooked up to it for like 5 years now. We only kept it because Charter would rape us otherwise.

Landlines, no, those are useless and stupid.

Ironically my entire line of work depends on landlines and will be made obsolete once the elderly are capable of texting.

Yes, but it's VoIP for free international calls. I never pick up the landline. Ever.
