I've cut and run... from my land line
I finally cut off my land line and gone completely mobile. I weighed the pros and cons of keeping it for quite a while, but the choice was made clear when I realized the main thing I used the line for was calling my cell phone to make it ring so I could find it.
For $45 a month I think I can look around my apartment a little longer.
Verizon of course tried to scare me into keeping it, telling me that if I ever called 911 on a cell phone the emergency services would never be able to find me and wouldn't even bother trying because I had the gall to call them on a cell phone like some Hollywood hotshot, but Verizon and I have a troubled past and I think it's best to move on.
