National Landline Telephone Day

We celebrate Alexander Graham Bell's invention that was first tested March 10, 1876!

There are pros and cons for both cellular or landline phones now, but in the home the landline is our "old school" choice.
Recently we had to replace the battery of our 12 year old wall phone but the cost was only $6.99 - well worth it, don't you think? With our bundled plan we get unlimited nationwide calling 24 hours a day, 7 days a week!

Do you ALWAYS depend on internet connections and cell service? Are they ALWAYS reliable for you?  Because we still have landline a complete power outage in the area sometimes will kill that option. Not always! We might be able to get cell service (not always either) with the flip phones that we usually only use when traveling in case we have a car breakdown we can call AAA. It's our choice. Our lives don't circle around the phone.
When the landline days are over, we will be too!

By the way, we still perc our coffee.

  1. I have a landline in Pa. But in Fl. Just use cell. They want double down here than my local phone co. Up north.
    I loved the old flip phones too.

  2. I still have a land line and have been battling whether to hang it up.

  3. We were on of the few that disconnectex our landline phone decades ago.

    I'm not a coffee drinker, but Bud is. He uses two kinds...the mr. coffee drip & sometimes a french press.

  4. Why do UK telephone companies say there will or may be a charge if the fault on your line is caused by your own internal equipment or internal wiring? Surely, the monthly line rental covers a fault on your phone line, right? Well, not exactly...
