Landlines. Do you still use yours? Empty
PostSubject: Landlines. Do you still use yours?   Landlines. Do you still use yours? EmptySat Jan 25, 2014 7:48 pm

One of the last few reasons to use a landline - the ability to call freephone numbers without racking up insane call charges - is about to disappear. In the UK Ofcom has ruled that freephone should be free from *any* phone, and while the change won't happen until 2015 the publicity will start in 2014. You might still have a landline for your broadband, but you'll probably do all your communication on your mobile, tablet or computer.

I can't remember the last time I used my landline to make a call!! I use my mobile,, Skype and facetime and Whatsapp. The only reason I still have mine is that it's part of my broadband package. I think it's time to enquire if I can get rid of my landline without losing any discount with Virgin Media.

I still use it many customers of a more senior age prefer a local land line. The same goes for senior family members.

With virtually no mobile signal here, there's no choice.

For the more grumpy among us in the village, any outsider who only has a mobile gets an annual bill from their friends for the increased costs of phoning them.

Like Knecht we barely get a mobile signal, even our local pub stuck about 1000 feet in the air on a hill doesn't get mobile signal.

Yes, just pay line rental save £50 off that cost by paying annually, but receive free call 24/7 and some many mins a month on mobiles and international calls. My mobile is only use when out with wife when she goes off shopping and cannot find me. I do pay for broad-band

Called Virgin today. If I get rid of my landline, my bill would go 'up' by £20 FFS. Apparently the landline is part of my 'bundle' discounts!!

Why don't I believe the lying barstewards?

Landlines are too expensive here, make do with a rubbish mobile signal and a slight enjoyment of being incommunicado. Either that or I'm a grumpy bitch Smile

The only connection to the 21st Century that exists in my household is the thing I'm typing this on now.    I do not have a mobile and wouldn't if you paid the bill for me.    As in another thread I only have a plastic card because I had to to open an account with Nationwide.    It is the only card I've ever had and have used it once at an ATM.    I never buy anything online so my financial details are nowhere to be found in the archives of my computer.    I have never had my bank account interfered with by outside sources unlike my off springs.    Yes I am of the senior category but who, given the above, is the stupid one?    There is nothing worse in my book than sitting somewhere in public and having to listen to people's life stories being shouted into a mobile. With these hands free hidden ones these days you can't tell the Schitsophrenics from the sane people in the streets anymore. Most people appear to be talking to themselves now.

I have generally resisted posting on anything much lately because sad feckers like you Rickler can't just leave it can you.    For some reason my machine decided to prematurely post my offering before I had finished it and you very quickly popped up with you sarcasm to start things off all over again.     Surely you of all people must understand that things in life happen prematurely sometimes.   You wouldn't have become the wanker you are without understanding premature would you.

Absolutely 100% yes Mr Punch. Tell Judy to lay off and there won't be any agro.

You know the history and I have kept out of stuff lately but I'm fecked if I'm going to let Mr wanker get away with digging. Suggest you ask him the same question.

Or Unless you live in west Devon and have no signal. I always love being in the mountains of Morocco and having full signal yet I struggle in some parts of Tavistock.

Okehampton get regular food parcels from me. If you ask for a reliable broadband service suitable for business in that area, be prepared to pay £50 a month. affraid 
Keeping one's head below the technical radar of passing merchants is always a good idea. And keep off the main thoroughfares of life.

Yep still have my landline, wife bought me a blackberry but it sits in the draw never charged up. Very few people know landline number and I never give it out especially over internet, learnt my leason there. Hate phones in general as they are an infringment on your privacy but need it for broadband.
