  3. Another reason you don’t need a landline.
    We have a landline but it’s hardly used, so it’s pretty redundant.
    They tell you all the reasons you need a landline and yet bell was will to leave mine off for a repair for almost 5 days.
    If you can live without it for 5 days , you can go 30 days.
    If you can go 30 days you just don’t need it!

    I still have a landline because it came as part of a bundle from Bell , I can’t remember the last time I have use it or even heard it ring , I think it may be time to get a new bundle without it.
