Have you noticed for a while now that there are more and more contests that require you to have a cell phone in order to enter? I did have one but now prefer a land line.

I haven't noticed, but then I have a cellphone, in fact now I have a smartphone! For a long time I had an old fashioned cell phone, but it came in really handy when I was lost and needed to call my husband ^_^;

There's nothing wrong with having a land line though!

To cut costs when my husband went back to full time school 5 years ago, we got rid of our land line and just each had a cellphone and switched to a cheaper family plan. Most people only called our cell phones anyway.

I think the thought process behind that is that you can be reached (presumably) anytime with a cellphone as most people have it with them 24/7. I know from experience having worked for Rogers Canada, landlines are declining significantly. More and more people are cancelling or getting rid of their landlines and switching to cellphones. All has to do with the evolution of technology!

Alot of them ask for cell phone now. Honestly i just move on, i really do not someone calling my cell and soliciting. Most that take your cell number do sell it. Unless you read the fine print and are 100% positive that the number is for contact purposes only.

As for the girl that work with rodgers, yes you may be right about it declining in large urban areas but the smaller towns and cities we still have plenty of landlines as there are still lots of places in the province here that are dead zones. Honestly technology and cell phones are ruining our society but thats another topic all together...

I don't give out the cell number - usually I can just re-enter my landline number and the form will except it.

I never give out my cell number

I have noticed that, and I don't like they ask for it for almost EVERYTHING.

I actually recently only gotten rid of my land line. Both me and my husband never had cell phones until about a year ago. I must admit it was much more peaceful and quiet without them lol.

Most of the time my number isn't even requested - just email.

We only have cell phones (no need for a ground line), and have never had any solicitation calls on it (knock on wood)
