I recently lost the subsidy for my landline. Apparently, after 45 years, AT&T doesn’t want my phone-only business anymore. At twenty dollars a month, I would keep my landline. At forty-six dollars a month, no way. The home phone is the number I give everyone…it is a convenience worth twenty dollars a month. Only twenty.
I saw a device that allows you to plug your home phone into a cellular device – at twenty dollars a month, for unlimited calls…so I am giving it a try. Technology is amazing! Who thinks these things up?
I did not even have to ask a teen or young adult to help me set up my new cell/home phone! My answering machine works with the new set up and I have gained caller ID. So far so good.
I resisted the urge to plug my corded princess phone into the cellular device. I went with the modern-looking cordless model that has four conveniently located extensions.
Too bad my candlestick phone was recycled into a lamp recently….now that would have been cool….a Mayberry-style cellular phone!
