Think landline phones belongs in a museum? Think again! Traditional phone service still has a lot to offer in the era of cell phones and tablets. Here are five great advantages to consider before ditching your landline.
In an emergency, your home phone is the best way to call 911. Even if you can’t speak, the dispatcher knows your address and can quickly send help. This is a great advantage if you have small children, an older parent, or poor cell signal at your house.
- Dependability of service
You may be limited where you can use your cell phone, but you can’t beat the dependability and clarity of traditional landline service. Since it doesn’t rely on cell signals, it consistently delivers crystal clear voice quality.
- An alternate phone number
Sometimes you just don’t want to give out your cell phone number. Whether it’s for an online order, or for someone you just met, it’s nice to have an alternative number you can use to screen your calls.
It’s great to have another way to reach your family (especially your kids) at home. And if all else fails, your landline comes in handy when you’ve lost your cell phone (and we all know that happens!) A quick call from your landline can help you quickly locate it before you lose your mind!
