@qvasi Interesting. With a little research, I can find 15 CAD plans for cell phones. None of these plans include data, so it would be pay-per-SMS (not a big deal if we're talking about using it as a land line). So, yes, I could get a no-data phone for cheaper than my land line (though only barely ... I pay 20 CAD for my land line). Comparing those low-end plans with my land line, I still prefer the land line. I am under 40 by a decade. It's true that most of my peers have dropped the land line in favor of their cell phones. There are still a good number of us, though, that have a land line. Usually we are also the ones who own a house instead of either renting or owning a condo. Perhaps we are a dying breed. I'm the only one of my peers who does not own a cell phone, though. Even my land-line owning friends have a cell (if only one in some cases). I just ... don't find that I need a cell, so I don't bother.

Sadly, what can I do if I simply don't own a cell phone? I don't need one in my day-to-day, so it's an extravagance that I don't bother with. My land line is much cheaper. You're right, of course. Email is the key password, and I tend to change that one on a regular basis and use strong passwords and pass phrases.
