I do as well as us both having mobiles, a lot of my friends have got rid of their landlines but I'm loathe to do this ( dunno why)
Internet goes through a landline , doesn't it?

And do you still pay it Roy?
Can't live without it Bobbi. We have bad reception in our village for mobiles generally and where we live there is simply no signal. I have told and told banks etc., etc. that there is no point in using a mobile number - but they still keep demanding it and using it. On the point of going in and threatening them! Mobiles only go on when we are out.
Yes. Some people in my house cannot use mobile phones so I keep it in case they need to dial 999
^^^ We have simple pay-as-you-go phones. No point in anything fancy or a contract.
Yes I still have my landline phone, it's my main phone. I have a small mobile phone that I've had for donkeys years and I take that out with me in case I need it in an emergency. It isn't a smart phone, so doesn't have the internet on it, but I don't need the internet when I'm out.

We have excellent reception for mobiles but we still keep our landline
I haven'y much signal either so I don't give out my number. I put my landline number where the mobile should be if they insist.
I have a landline only because I need a phone line for jnternet. But, as I understand it...it doesn't need to be plugged in? I never use it.

I use ours more than my mobile

It was cheaper with the landline but there was method in their madness. Just using the phone a couple of times cost a fortune, hence it got unplugged.
In the UK it is, so far as I understand, impossible to have internet on it's own (tell me if I am wrong) and thus we have a landline with phone and internet. In our case the phone is there for incoming calls but we bypass the provider by using a VOIP service which is far cheaper than any contract that includes call costs ("included" or "free" calls). As royfromaus says, any calls made on a individual charge regime is hugely expensive.
You're wrong
I have a landline phone but it's never plugged in. 2 days after having it installed in order to get broadband package (BT), i was getting nuisance calls. I didn't even know my own number at that time but lots of cold callers sure did.
Should have added, my broadband is now with Vodafone and i do not pay a charge for the landline, making it £20 per month cheaper than the BT package i was using.

I'm lucky I very rarely get a cold call Ken
yes I keep my landline. its the number I give out to all and sundry. Friends and family get my mobile number.
I have not had a landline plugged in for several years - makes me cross that we are forced to pay for it to get broadband. You would have thought that by now they would have come up with a system where you could have broadband without having to pay for a landline you don't want. I pay less than a tenner a month for my mobile with plenty of data and unlimited calls so would never use a landline even if I had one plugged in.
