    it is a good idea to have at least one phone that is not either cellular or remote.  Even without considering brain cancer, which is controversial, as you say, you can consider blackouts.

    In a blackout, cell phones may not work (in any disaster the networks get overloaded fast), and remote handset phones will not work, as there is no electricity.

      Absolutely essential! The good, old, curly-corded land line could be a lifesaver. We don't have reliable cell coverage in our remote location. So when the power goes out, the cordless phones are useless, and the humble corded phone is your best friend!
