They have a mobile. As long as you live somewhere with a good mobile signal you don't need a landline for anything.
Because they use their mobiles perhaps?
You don't need a landline. Free calls from mobile and pc suit me very well.
Until the likes of BT allow you to have broadband without a landlne, some of us are stuck with one. One advantage, a landline improves your credit rating.
You don't have to have a phone plugged in to it, sapelsam.
Sorry HC, don't understand what you mean.
More to the point would be 'How can you function without a mobile?'
My mobile costs me £7.50 a month for calls ,email and internet plus I can use it as a mobile hotspot for my PC. I can take it everywhere I go with nothing different from being at home. Can you do that with a landline?
Plus I can even watch free live TV from over 200 stations all over the world and listen to over 100 radio stations .
Sapel, I mean BT and the like make you pay for the line rental but you don't have to use it - you don't have to own a landline phone.
Eddie, may I ask who your provider is, and usage limits for internet.
Not much point having a landline HC and not putting a phone on it. Plus, credit rating advantage.
sapelsam, nobody would know if a phone was plugged in or not.
You can ask me - I get 5GB data, 200 minutes of calls and unlimited texts for £7. EE
Thanks HC.
When I go out, I’m out. I don’t want all the facilities that I have at home. I don’t want to be in touch with people and I don’t want them to be in touch with me. I don’t want to surf the web, I don’t want to watch the TV, I don’t want to be troubled with inane e-mails. I have a PAYG mobile for emergencies and the occasional “There’s pigs on the line at Effingham Junction so I’ll be late. Get me a pint lined up (or put the kettle on, depending on which direction I’m travelling)”. It costs me a £20 top-up about every eighteen months or so.

I can understand some people having just a mobile. I have a landline because it suits me. I find the transmission much better and more reliable. But then I'm a funny old cuss.

Free TV is an app on my Samsung G7. I think it's called FilmonTV.
NJ, but how do you feel important when you don't have a smartphone?
I was with GiffGaff for a while but the 4G speed was shockingly slow. Problem solved by moving to EE
I have a mobile (PAYG, non-smart, made out of Bakelite) - at least I did a few days ago, it's probably round here somewhere....
I have a landline, with a removable handset - at least I did a few days ago, it's probably round here somewhere....
You wanna phone me?
Well you can't!
Glad to say I don't have a mobile.
