You still can't beat a wired phone for voice clarity; important if you're ever going to make any important business calls from it like I do. And as you mentioned, during power outages, national emergencies and natural disasters, the cell-phone network is more likely to get bogged down and unusable; that said, the land-line network still gets overloaded in California every time there's an earthquake big enough to knock something over.<br><br>
I've gone down to the bare minimum on the land line. No long distance, no call waiting, nothing. If the power goes out for any length of time, such as in a blizzard or hurricane (both of which we get in this area), I would need the land line. I use the cell phone for all long distance calls. <br><br>
