We're gradually weaning ourselves from our copper landline to using only our cell phones. We use a Bluetooth enabled Panasonic cordless phone system. This cool base unit pairs with our cell phones and also connects to the landline, and we can make and receive calls on comfortable handsets around the house through either the landline or cell accounts. The cell phones need to be powered up, but the Bluetooth connection seems to work from anywhere in the house. Bluetooth lets us use our cell phones as if they're home phones. Almost as nice as being in the car.
No matter what you say about your experiences during your most recent power failure, copper landlines are more reliable than the cell and VoIP infrastructures, especially in the case of severe weather like ice storms that knock out power for days, making it difficult to keep the cell phones charged up. In any case, we eliminated out copper line because we are already paying loads of money to a cable company and just didn't need to pay for the extra phone line.
