I have been unhappy with our phone situation for some time. We have a cell phone and a land-line, and the cost seems extremely high for how much we actually use our phones. Since I am primarily at home, the thought of getting rid of our land-line seems illogical, particularly when I find cell phones more difficult for conversation. Unfortunately getting rid of the cell altogether isn’t really an option either. I could switch to a no contract cell phone plan (much cheaper) and have very limited use of my cell for emergencies only. Has anyone gone this route? Any good plans/companies you would recommend?
Or we could eliminate our land-line? It seems only those still in school or in transition are opting for this route. Is it acceptable for a settled family of 6 to not have a land-line? After all the taxes, our basic land-line still adds up to a hefty sum, and I’m tempted to just throw in the towel and go cell phone only. The social pressure to keep a land-line is high. Is it ridiculous for us to go cell phones only?
