Do You Still Have a Landline?

Do You Have a Landline? One-Quarter of US Households Don't

You love your cell phone, but do you have a landline? A recent study of over 21,000 households found that one in four households uses only mobile phones — that translates to 52 million adults and 19 million children. Certain expected factors contributed to a household's likelihood of being exclusively mobile. For example, renters are three times more likely than those who own their residences to be mobile-only, and nearly half of 25- to 29-year-olds (the age group with the highest percentage) live in a wireless-only home.

As expected, the least likely age group to be completely wireless is over 65; only 5.2 percent of those surveyed in this group had only a mobile phone. Nearly two years ago, most of you relied solely on your phone, but are you still rocking a landline?

@mayara, sweet!! When I move, I will not be transferring the landline. I don't have internet now, and won't get it at the new place, either. I use the internet at work, at the library, and on my phone.

We have a landline, but it's the bare minimum and it's more as a "just in case."

We were wireless-only for a year or two but now we have a landline. I think cell phones are not that reliable sometimes so it's good to have a good ol' landline in your house ;)

I only have the cell and will always only have the cell no matter how hard Cablevision tries to get me to add phone.
