    I currently have Verizon as my land line provider, my internet fios provider, and wireless provider (2 numbers). Can I drop my land line and still retain my internet service and use my wireless as my primary???

    i dont see why not....but with all your services on a bundle with Verizon wouldnt it save you money to just keep the landline?

    You can, but if you get a bundled discount for having all these services from Verizon, you may not be able to keep the discount without landline service.

    Verizon wants to make as much money as possible (I know, big surprise...:)), so you canceling your landline won't make them too happy. Call them to find out how your services/pricing will be affected.

    If you don't have bundled services with them, then most definitely cancel your landline, as it's cheaper to keep the cell. Just be forewarned you'll lose that landline call clarity if you go totally cellular.

    Thanks for the replies. I'll go with contacting Verizon and analyzing the changes and what, if any, savings I'll get if I get rid of the landline.

    Do you have a home security/alarm system? if you do just keep in mind that disconnecting the landline will disable the ability of the alarm system to call out for emergency.

    what you can do is ask Verizon to downgrade you to a per minute plan cuz all the ones that they advertise up front are for unlimited calling everywhere.....im pretty sure that Verizon can keep a no monthly fee plan or a cheap plan that will charge you per mimnute say when you dial 911 or when a security system dials out
