In a perfect world, the hard line should have become a platform for building out an entire app ecosystem for the home. Now, I understand why the hard line is dying – mobile telephony is much more convenient for the consumer, and far more profitable for the telephone companies. In short, the home phone was a social, shared, immediate technology, one that existed in rhythm with the physical expression of our lives in our most formative space: Our home. Verizon just informed me that effective May 6,  a landline must accompany my DSL service and I must pay for it.
Many apartment buildings can only hook up the front door directories and buzzers to a land line.
Hi there, this is Kelly on behalf of AT&T and I wanted to thank you for your advocacy of the home phone. Another concept attached that you touched on is the concept of a shared identity for the family. What I think would be REALLY interesting is services that facilitated modeling this shared identity. I had a mustard yellow dialer with about 20 feet of cord to the phone jack and 10ft of coiled line for the headset.
I had a couple other points I wanted to mention but as it’s been a few weeks have mostly forgot them.
John Battelle, 45, is an entrepreneur, journalist, professor, and author who has founded or co-founded scores of online, conference, magazine, and other media businesses.

Of course, our cels don’t work very well in the hills of Marin County, California, which creates a rather asynchronous sense of community, but more on that in a bit.
Mobile phones are not a regulated monopoly (at least, not quite yet), so there’s a lot more innovation going on, at least at the platform level. But it’s quickly being replaced by a technology that is private, mobile, asynchronous and virtual. One of my 2 home land phone lines recently has been down for the past 2 weeks, and we didn’t miss it. Got it from my parents when they bought a summer home in the sticks back in the early eighties (1984 for all you historicals…). There is a major (and expected and accepted) latency (auditory) in cell phones that land lines just don’t have (unless of course you call from landline to overseas landline).
Long story short, Verizon hasn’t been able to deliver a dial tone although I have a working DSL line in the house. As for the technology getting dumber, I think it’s just been sitting on the back burner forgotten in the rush to get everything mobile. Because I’m cheap, I have a cell phone with a smaller plan and do most of my yacking at home.
Bell would be disappointment to see that his invention is used today by few of us, however sometimes we need to let go some things so that innovation can happen. From the times when your cell phone isn’t accessible to emergency situations, the home phone provides peace of mind in a household.

Heavy, took a lot of crap, got beat up, drop from two stories, thrown, and subject to rain, snow, and desert heat of Arizona. It’s cheap and reliable like you said, except in our case like in the aforementioned power outages. Landlines usually have such a low latency that it feels like the person you are speaking to is in the same room as you.
Though the use of cellular devices is increasingly becoming more in-demand today, home phone will never fade. An elaborate system of etiquette and social standards flowered around the home phone: how long a child might be allowed to stay on the phone, how late one could call without being impolite, and of course the dread implications of a late night call which violated that norm. But they’ll spend hours up in their room, texting their friends and chatting over the Internet. This is an extra layer of dealing with the telco that’s the usual exercise in frustration and bad customer service. I still have one but every call out is usually to a person with a cell phone that no longer has a landline.
