My wife says that when I get a phone call, I look at it as if I am wondering what that noise is.
I seldom talk on my phone, I tend to text more. Seems people I used to talk to are texting more, it's been a gradual progression.
I do have two smart phones one for private the other I use for business calls, but like Chrissy I don't get many calls which are usually only my daughters anyway.
The business one I only answer if I am free. and don't carry it around with me.
I do agree that most people seem to answer their phone whenever it rings and whoever they are with, and yes in my experience youngsters usually text these days.
It's interesting to note how the mobile/cell phone has virtually taken over the world in communication, I never thought they would catch on when I first came across them
I think a large number of landlines in the UK are now used only for broadband/internet connections, with no phone service over them,
The old nationalised company "British Telecom" split and become privatised some time ago, with a division called Openreach which has rolled out a fibre optic network over a lot of the country, and connected it to the old copper cables into our homes.
I guess but for this broadband use the old phone lines would be virtually redundant now.
I still have my landline because my security system uses it and so does my internet. I got the cheapest pkg though for the phone, only local calls. $20, so I may just keep it, otherwise I'll have to pay money for ADT at to switch to a different system.
I never answer though and I never call on it, but at least thats the number all my spam calls go to which leaves my cell phone only for a few people.
I guess technology has moved on a bit with an iPhone version now
Plus a more permanent one in wood
