Ya, Verizon does make you keep a landline in there bundle package. I have a phone on the wall that i don't even know the number for, the ringer is off because the only time it rings is when your about to sit down to dinner and somebody tring to sell you shit. But if i hit 911 the whole freaking town will be here in minutes. Thats a good feeling. As far as thier wireless service, 2nd to none. You get what you pay for!
