So, do any of you even bother paying for a home phone anymore? Is the iPhone always by your side at the ready to take a call, or is the good old home phone still needed? For me, we do have a home phone, it only exists for the security system and fax machine. Nobody else would know the phone number. We all just use our iPhones as our main phones, and it is nice to not share lines with anybody else! Also, no need to juggle multiple different phone numbers either! The iPhone is always in my pocket, as it is also my PDA as well (Personal Digital Assistant for those of you too young to remember these). It has my calendar, reminders, music, camera, as well as everything I need with me at all times. It also controls our lighting, temperature, and security system, thanks to the home automation service provided by our security company, and its respective apps . So therefore, the advantage is also no need to go walk to go get the phone when it's ringing, as it's always on me!
