Does anyone have land lines anymore?
I don't have a land line, but I have an internet landline. I use a Magic Jack which plugs into the power of the wall and a network cable connects to the router, which allows it to work separate from the PC. I then plug a regular phone into the Magic Jack box connected at the power outlet, via regular phone cable. I use an app on my phone to access messages or get them via emails. I use it as a back up for my cell phone. I spent about 128 dollars for 5 years of service.
