Endangered Species: Can the Landline Fight its way from the Brink of Extinction

By Julie Winters Subscribe to RSS | March 29th 2012 | Views:

The mobile phone has been one of the more astonishing technological marvels of the 21st century, we now have the capacity to be stranded naked on a wicker raft drifting aimlessly through the Caribbean and still make a call to chat with your friend Sally in Swindon. Mobile phones have taken on increasingly incredible functions as well, they can now access internet, they have all sorts of functions it's like a tiny amusement arcade that can also phone your friend Sally in Swindon.

Landlines may present superfluous costs, however much you might want a free phone line no companies provide it, although they will often offer "inclusive" deals with bundles that make the cost of a landline very competitive.

As the global domination of the mobile phone seems to march relentlessly onwards, what is the future our well loved old landlines? Are landlines now a needless expense , out competed by the mobile phone, or can they find their own niche, a valuable function the mobile will never manage?

In BT's new adverts suggest landlines still serve a valuable purpose, they depict couples struggling to have meaningful conversations over their mobile phones, demonstrating the increasingly relevant point that, with a mobile phone the use can wander about and get distracted, it is difficult to pay full attention to a conversation.

Mobile phones inexplicably lend themselves and encourage a faster pace of life, an being able to make a call whilst travelling or whilst cooking dinner might seem like the most valuable multi-tasking, it is distracting. What will Sally in Swindon think when she's trying to tell you about her day whilst you're busy grocery shopping? She doesn't appreciate taking second place to cabbages.

To make a call on a landline phone demands you take a comfortable seat and pay attention, with a sturdy handset and without the gadgets of a mobile phone distracting you and without constant texts, or credit updates or online notifications. Allowing you to give Sally from Swindon all the time she deserves and who knows, she might even invite you to visit Swindon: lucky you!

So, although mobile phones are marvelous relics of modernity, the landline still has its place, a home phone represents a nicer way to make a call and pay your distant loved ones the attention they deserve.
