I dont have one. with my hearing or rather lack of its hard to understand on one . I am going to get new aides though and may then replace the house phone with a cell which I will be able to use with the new aides. smile~
I live without mine quite frequently when we go camping. Our family has a strict no electronics rule while camping, so the cell phone gets turned off. It is easier to live without than you'd realize when your immediate family is all together. Friends and business can be put off for awhile, but I do hate the back log of messages that I have when I turn it back on.
