But don't do it. The simple reason cable, Internet and cellphone networks may not working during prolonged power outgates. Plus, theres the matter of 911. If you're unable to give your location when calling from a cellphone, th epolice may not be able to find you the way if you've called from a landline. Instead of ditchig the landline, strip down to the barest minimum plan, so you have it for emergencies.
