    A lot of folks have dropped their land lines around here. Cell phone books don't exist AFAIK.

    My landline's Verizon.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    We disconnected our copper land line at the beginning of the year. Of the monthly charge, 95% was line rental.

    Now we have a VOIP phone, which is a fraction of the price (actually nothing, because its bundled in with our internet).

    The funny thing is the other day, the telco dropped a phone book on my door step. I picked it up and placed it straight into the recycling bin...

    Don't you need to look up anyone else's number? Not having a landline phone yourself doesn't mean you don't need the book.

    Its funny, but you would think that.
    But All listed numbers can be found on the internet.
    I actually cannot remember the last time I actually picked up a phone book, either white or yellow. If I want to look something up, I'll just connect to the net and get the info.

    Same here. Every time we get new ones, they go directly to the recycle bin.
    WYSIWYG - At least that's my goal.

    And there used to be just one. Now there are several.

    Haven't had a land line in Utah for about 15 years. Haven't bothered with a phone book of any kind for about 5. At my place in the Dakotas it is different, most businesses don't have much of an Internet presence, and cell coverage at the farm house is both marginal and intermittent, so I have and use both.
