True enough. My situation may not be usual since I'm in Japan, but most people I know don't even have a land line anymore. We have our cell phones for local calls and VoIP for calls to the US. Of course given my job as tech support for a local ISP, I see the flaws in this configuration. I've many a time had customers either complain about hold times using up their minutes or about not being able to troubleshoot because they are calling me on Vonage or Skype(then your internet is obviously working, ma'am. Have a good day).
