A forum here to discuss landline phones? Corded or cordless

There is a forum for just about every kind of category electronics wise but I don't see one for landline home telephones, corded or cordless. I do see one for cell phones. I need to buy a new cordless phone and I think a forum for landline phones besides the one you already have here for cell phones would be a great addition to this site.

Nope . . .

Wife works for AT&T. Wire line is going away. According to her and the AT&T statements, land lines are soon to be a thing of the past. Land lines as in copper to your home.

The new wave is fiber and cable which can provide dial tone (of a sort) and allow calls. And wife says they are loosing land lines every day because people are using their cell phone as their main phone number.

Got a question about the equipment maybe? We'll just use this forum.

Re: Nope ... New!

Well personally I think they should add a forum for landline phones, I have questions about cordless phones. Answer this question for me, if landline phones are on their way out how can you send a fax to someone on a wireless phone or are faxes on the way out the same way that VHS players were? I guess you could scan your document into your computer then email it to somebody.

Re: faxes

You're getting off your own topic. Faxes aren't cordless phones.

About faxes:
- There are many places on the web that allow you to send a fax to somebody who wants that, without having a fax or a landline yourself. All you need is an Internet connection.
- Fax will go the way of telex.

I didn't mean . . .

in the next two or five years. Just that all the "phone companies" are loosing land lines to other services. There will still be copper in the ground and in the air for local distribution. At least in our lifetime. But it is going away.

What'cher question?
