I got rid of my years ago anyways because everyone calls me on the cell anyways, but when I did have it I got lots of wrong numbers, telemarketers, etc...I've had none of that with my cell phone and I can block you automatically if you call me and keep you from ever calling my number again...So no need to change my number if and when I win....but that's me what about you??

        I still have a LL and in fact that's how I'm talking to you now.

        I have caller ID and never answer if I don't know who's calling,

        they can talk to the answer machine if it's important, most times they give up. (very effective)

         

        I won't have to change the # when I win b/c the account is in my wife's maiden name,

        and she goes by a nickname, so very few people know her real first name that's listed in the phone book,

        and the one's that know her real first name don't know her maiden name.

                        NO WAY would I keep my land line if I won the lottery.

                        I wouldn't even have one now if I wasn't worried that I'd run out of cell phone minutes. And yes, I realize I could get an unlimited phone plan, but I was grandfathered in with a rate of 80 bucks a month for 3 cell phones with unlimited text messaging and 1800 shared minutes. I just can't afford to change this plan right now....I also have my internet through my home phone service and have an amazing package deal...If I could afford to change all this, I would do it in a skinny minute!

                          Landlines went out with Disco's and Bell bottoms. If you still hanging onto it- you probably wishing you still had an Afro or a Mullet.

                            I'm guessing a skinny minute lasts about 30 seconds ?
