Re: No Comcast Phone Service For Us, Thankyouverymuch I gave up my land line almost 8 years ago and went with Vonage. Recently though I found I was never using Vonage so I dropped them also and strictly have a Cell.
I talked with my parents about going strictly cell service but they brought up a very important point about why they keep a land line. 911 Service. If they call 911 on their land line the responders know immediately exactly where the call came from and they can respond very quickly. With a Cell out here in our rural area you would have to talk them through how to get to you. Their cell phones don't have GPS so locating them is a bit more difficult than just using the land line.
At their age seconds count when you need a paramedic.
