    And there are pagers with voicemailboxes.

    So you get a landline with "call forward no-answer" to the voicemailbox/pager number, and that way you always know when you've got messages.   Resist the telco's sales effort to get you to buy a "bundle."  

    As for peer pressure..... what did our parents tell us about giving in to peer pressure...?

    OTOH depending on your location, it might also be worth having a cheap TracFone for purposes of emergency calls on the road.

    But for long conversations without interruptions, nothing beats being able to stretch out on the couch and blab over the old hardwired landline.
