Guess what items 38% of Americans ages 18 to 29 no longer consider a necessity of life according to a recent Pew Research study.  If you guessed a landline telephone you are right.  According to that same study, 74% of the US households still have a landline.  This means that 26% of the country has said goodbye to their landline telephone.

With the rising use of mobile devices like cell phones, Blackberry Devices, Droids, iphones, and other smart phones more and more people are thinking about dumping their landline phone.  According to the study, 6% fewer Americans from 2009 to 2010 are saying the landline is still a necessity of life.

 
The use of mobile devices is driving the use of the landline down.  Do you find yourself asking, why do I still have a landline?  If so, you are defiantly not alone.  In a recent article on www.cellbills.com, even Amy Baumhower a long time mobile device executive and Owner of One Source Mobile asked the question of other cell phone users and especially moms out there with teenagers who refuse to answer the landline phone at their home, why keep the landline phone?

"So we will keep watching to see what the final numbers for 2010 are when it comes to reduction in landlines.  In the meantime, if you find yourself not answering the phone or using you landline less and less it make be time to get rid of the old landline phone and go strictly with a mobile phone."
