Text math wouldn't work for me. We had texting disabled on our family plan for years (because my mother used to get too many texts from her niece). We reinstated it a few months ago, but I suck at it and have only received or sent about 10 texts in the months we've had it back.

This. Problem is I still get way more calls on the land line than my cell and I'm rarely by the phone with caller ID. BUT we get 6-10 solicitors a day, so I screen the calls unless I happen to see the number (it also comes up on Fios cable, but I don't use that).

This and this. I hate the phone. I hate answering calls (it disrupts my plans) and I hate making calls even more. I hate my cell most of all and mostly it just sits next to my TV charging (I check it once or twice a day and find missed calls from hours before). I have an outdated flip phone, which is already bigger than I'd like (I'll try to never get a smart phone), but AT&T let me keep it, so I did.

I only have one because I can't physically change a tire or walk far and want it for emergencies, but I honestly still forget it about 1/3 of the time I leave the house.
