Menu Can Reach Your Neighbors Through Land Line and VOIP Phones

Perhaps you have read the Wall Street Journal article that announced that one in three houses has gotten rid of their land line phone, and even more than that, there are more households with a cell phone than with a land line phone.  You might wonder how a service like a pet AMBER alert can still be effective. Lost Dog Alert

Despite the fact that one third of people have left their landlines behind in the 20th century, there are still two thirds of households who have one, and eleven states have landlines in every other house.  That is a large percentage of the population, and we at believe that is an asset better than anything else out there. We can reach a lot of people in a given ZIP code to alert them to your missing pet.

You may also wonder why are people still holding onto their land line phones when smartphones can be pocket computers, cameras, video cameras, oh and phones, too?  For many people, it’s a matter of security.  Their home alarm systems are connected to their phone lines so an alert can go out to the monitoring company if the alarm gets tripped.  A land line also allows for 911 to see your caller ID and know where to dispatch emergency responders, whether you can speak or not.  A land line is also necessary for the elderly health alert systems to work properly.

No matter the weather, a land line phone will almost always work, unless a catastrophic storm has taken down the telephone poles and broken the lines.  Nowadays, however, many phone lines are underground, and therefore less susceptible to such damage.  Cellular circuits can get overloaded if too many people are trying to make calls during a disaster.  Plus, a land line phone will always work without power.  Cell phones need to be able to recharge their batteries from time to time, and in extended periods of power outages, this can mean the phone will lose its power completely.

A land line can’t be stolen, too, like a cell phone can.  The physical phone might be taken if your home is broken into, but it’s easy to replace with a basic phone again.  A cell phone might be quite expensive to replace.
