Not only does the damn thing insist on correcting my impeccable speling, but it also decides unilaterally to go into the Do Not Disturb mode.
So I missed a few calls this morning.

Another reason I live with a land line.

Cell phone only for road. Landline much more reliable,
except when it's Century link…then not so much…

Cellphones, the instruments of Evil. I can't think of a single thing that is "essential" about them. Being pestered anywhere, anytime, by anyone, is not an advantage. "Emergencies" shmergencies. We didn't need to phone anyone instantly before, so why do we need to now? Let people on the spot help out. They still do anyway.
Okay, I can see a track phone being a useful alert tool. Aside from that, turn the dammed things OFF….

Well it is a smart phone, so your beat before you even get started.

You never saw people herding like sheep into stores, or camping all night, to buy the latest land line every year, like you see now with each new edition of a cell phone.
I have a cell phone, and use it, but I don't respect it.
And in no way is it "smart."
Unfortunately, my landline now mainly serves as a robo-call, spam, scam filter that keeps my cell phone from attracting similar vermin. I only give my cell number out to actual friends. But the landline rings incessantly with faux calls, despite being on official "no-call" lists. It's a pest, but I dread my cell phone behaving in the same way if it were my ONLY telephonic communication link.

$45 USD for just calls!
£12.00 GBP (about $18 USD) for a gig of data, 500 mins, 5000 (yes five thousand) texts.
Never managed anywhere near that amount in a month.
