    I don't have a cell. I've never sent a text. I'm either at home or work. Phone is at both. I need to be reached when I'm in transit? Or on the weekends when I'm out doing something?

    It's not going to "ban" land line telephones, it just would make it so these companies are no longer required by law to provide the service.

    I went to all cell phones in the house about 10 years ago.

    The only reason I have one now is it came with the Fios package
    I got and it was cheaper to get the triple play with a phone than
    just get the tv and internet package.

    I never answer the home phone when it rings. Probably never will.

    I use the cell 95% of the time, the mother in law is pretty much the only one that calls it because she doesnt want us "getting brain cancer" when she calls.

    Im not paying 40 bucks a month for her to call.

    This is a stupid bill that essentially neuters the PUC in dealing with service issues.

    Your home phone sucks? Too bad. Ain't getting fixed. Keep complaining about the noise on the line? You get your account closed and told to go pound sand.

    Till the give PUCs the ability to mandate cell phone quality of service, they shouldn't pass this bill.

    No way this happens. No elected official is going to do anything that would piss off the elderly voting block.
