We gave up the land line about 4 years ago primarily as a means of cutting costs and reducing duplicate services. The only problem was when I dropped & broke my cell phone - it took a couple days to purchase a new phone from my carrier although my spouse still had his and I was able to access my voice mail.

The link is working for me dex..... I just sent it to you in a PM as well. Let me know if you can't get in and I'll go map the route to this page from their home page for you. It's a lot of convoluted clicks, but you can get there.

6 years and counting... no problems so far. Can't even get phone service here in the boonies. If the cell has problems or I'm out of minutes I use skype.
