    My wife is required to have one by her job. We get about three calls a day from charities and it doesn't get used other than that. She's never received or sent a fax for work that I can remember. The big phone companies must be losing their asses on land line losses.

    They are passing the buck onto the consumer. I have two land lines for calls and faxes, because right now I'm working from home (my employer downsized, and I'm now an independent contractor, which means I lost my office and have to work out of my house). I pay $103 a month for them, so yeah, it's a fucking rip off.

    I have an old person flip phone also but I don't really use it for anything except calling home if someone tries to rape me.

    We're using charter cable because they had a good deal. I'll look into Ooma or one of those services after our deal runs out.

    Get a smart phone. It's worth it for the GPS driving directions alone. You'll also be able to surf Dawgs anywhere.

    Ooma is a little iffy with voice mail quality sometimes but it's been very good, other than that.

    I'm very resistant to technology. I use an iPad but I just feel like I don't need a fancy phone. I also think surfing Dawg's anywhere is a bad idea for me.

    Our number when I was growing up was one number away from this old person shoe store and we would get these ancient confused angry people calling about Red Wing Shoes.

    A few weeks ago I got a voice mail saying, "Bob!? I'm coming to see you." I freaked a little bit.
