To save money we got rid of our home phone about a year ago. Not having a land line has been nice because we only have one phone payment, the ring does not wake the kids up, and we always have our cell phones anyway so what was the point.
Well there is one flaw…teaching my daughter to call 911 in case of emergency. What if my cell phone is not charged? Biggest problem is that the newer the phones get the more complicated they are to dial on. Has anyone tried teaching a 4 year old how to dial on a touch screen phone? First you have to unlock the screen and then get to the keyboard and oops, you accidentally touched the wrong part of the screen and oops where did the keypad go? Even if you have one with a keyboard they are not always user friendly either.
So now I go through my tote of old phones and look for an old school cell phone (and hope that i havae the charger somewhere) that is easy to call 911 on or I break down and buy a land line again? Decisions decisions, what do you think?
