WHY DO I NEED A LANDLINE PHONE?
Here are some advantages corded landline phones have over cell phones and other phone options.
Better Sound Quality
Can we hear you now? Yes we can!
It's a simple fact. Landline phones just sound better than cell phones, which makes them perfect for noisy houses or work areas, those with hearing issues, and those who actually want to hear their conversations.
Have you ever dropped an important call on your cell phone?
Chances are you have. With a landline phone you are less likely to drop calls, and you don't even have to stand by a window to get a good signal!
Faster Emergency Response
Unlike cell phones, a landline phone is tied to an actual physical address, which allows emergency personnel to find you faster in an emergency. A cell phone uses GPS, which can get them in the vicinity, but can't tell them things like what apartment you are in.
Kids At Home
Do you have kids at home?
What happens if you are not at home and there is an emergency? Do they have their own cell phones? Are their batteries charged? Did the kids lose their cell phone again? No worries. With a landline phone, they'll always have a way to call you in an emergency.
Did you know that cell phones and even cordless phones can be monitored by scanners programmed to listen in on their frequencies? If privacy is important to you, a landline phone allows you to have a private conversation with a greatly reduced risk of someone listening in.
Are you trying to save money?
We hear this a lot from customers who are wanting to drop their landline phones, but what they don't seem to realize is that having a landline phone is far less expensive than any cell phone plan out there. If you're truly trying to save money, drop your cell phone bill and stick with a landline phone!
Do you or your kids spend most of your time staring at a screen?
Cell phones, tablets, and other smart devices have created screen "zombies". Screen addiction has become a very real problem, and is growing rapidly in all areas of the world. With a landline phone, there is no screen to get addicted to. Take a break from staring at your screen, and have a meaningful conversation with someone on your landline phone!
