Does anyone else not have a telephone in their house? It seems like this is becoming a more popular thing now that we all have cell phones. My brother bought a house last year & he does not have a phone. He uses his cell phone for everything. Why not, I guess he's never home anyway. My mom has a co-worker that does the same thing. So the other day, we get back from our trip to Florida & there are 7 messages on our answering machine- 4 hang ups, 2 pre-recorded messages for some company & a wrong number! That's so irritating to me. I told my husband, I don't know why we have a telephone, it's hardly ever anyone we actually want to talk to. We are building a house right now & were actually throwing around the idea of not having a phone hooked up & just using our cell phones. We'd actually have the lines run & phone jacks installed, just not get a number or hook one up. Does that sound silly? Anyone else do this? It's getting to be such a pain with telemarketers(even when you are on a do not call list!). Only my friends, family, the schools & doctors know my cell # so when it rings, I know it's a legitimate call. Any thoughts?
