7 Benefits of Getting Rid of Your Landline Phone



1. Utility Cost

You can eliminate the phone bill cost completely from your budget.  Home phone prices vary depending on state and company plan, but you can save an average of $32 per month, or $384 per year.  That is a great savings that can be added to your savings plan or utilized toward paying off debt!


2.  More space

We all need clutter free desks and areas, and getting rid of your landline phone will create space!!  It may be just a little space, but it’s one less thing taking up your area!


3. Electric Cost

It doesn’t cost a whole lost to have your phone plugged in, or to charge it, but it will save you some additional cash on your electric bill each year.


4.  You don’t have to worry about losing power

Landline phones do not work if there is a power outage.  Assuming you are replacing with a cell phone, you will have a way to communicate in case of an emergency.


5.  You will never miss a call to your house

You won’t have to miss any calls by having all your incoming calls switched to your cell phone number.  Just remember to notify all your utility and bank contacts of the change.


6.  No more worrying about long distance phone charges

You won’t have to worry about how much time you are spending talking long distance.  Most cell phones offer unlimited long distance calls, simplifying your life!!


7.  Phone Cost or battery replacement cost

Cordless phones or batteries only last so long before needing to be replaced.  Even though they are rechargeable, batteries will still not last your lifetime.  By getting rid of your landline, you can save on battery or phone costs.



If you decide to cancel your landline phone, just remember to notify all the important companies and contacts of your number change.  You don’t want to miss an important call!
