Cutting the (phone) cord.

May 28, 2010 by

Do you have a cell phone?  Probably.

Does everyone in your family have a cell phone?  Probably.

Do you still have a home phone line too? Why?

I finally got rid of my landline phone when I realized I would never answer it because I knew it was a telemarketer.   I looked into VOIP alternatives to keep the homephone, but not pay the monthly bill.  I read some good reviews on Ooma (affiliate link) and almost bought it, but instead I just canceled my service and put all the phones in the closet.  And you know what?  I don’t miss it.  At all.

If you still have a homeline, ask yourself, “Do I need this?  Do I use this?”  PBS has a great article on some other VOIP alternatives, but think about it.  You may not even need a home phone at all.  Cancel the service and save yourself some money.
