Can I cast my vote for "land line"? It's what I hear the most.

Thank you.
There may be a more technical name, but I prefer your "conventional phone".Emotion: wink
Hi,

I 've just heard people say 'I have a land-line'. But really, it's not something one needs to say very much.

You'd more likely express it in the negative, ie 'I don't have a cell-phone'.

Best wishes, Clive
I see. Thank you very much, everybody.
