Will new regulations allowing consumers to transfer their home phone numbers to a cellular phone increase the number of people who cancel their land line?
Asked at Liberty Hall, 642 Mass. on November 12, 2003
“Oh, definitely. I know a lot of people already who use cell phones instead of home phones. This will just make it easier.”
“Just having the convenience of a land line is good when you’re at home. I like my home phone. I’m usually at home; that’s where I want people to call me.”
“It might slightly. Some people might do it for convenience, but I don’t think it will be a mass exodus.”
“Not necessarily because a lot of the people who still have land lines are die-hard anti-cell phone. A lot of people will never switch because they’re against it.”
