Decided to join the 21st century (12 years late) by the toss of my land line phone. Forget the fact I have not had a dial tone for close to two weeks or so on said land line. I refuse to pay a tech to make a house call and dish out out dough. I already know the only one of my three jacks is jacked.
....and with a new hi falutin' cell phone I could Facebook anyway and anytime I want.
So I did comparison shop. I am amazed if a phone even rings anymore. Seems like an afterthought. I cannot see spending hundreds of dollars on a phone. So I am not. I remember when I had to carry a dime for the pay phone! I was told I could keep my home phone number. Might take a couple days--yet it is possible. Happy there. I think I found a phone. I have Plan B if need be. Feel pretty good of my possible choice.
Maybe this whole 21st century won't be so bad after all.
