    It was for a long time believed by many that if you only worked from a mobile you were not a proper business.
    In the modern world we all live and die with our phones and only dish out the mobile numbers.

    Does anyone here still give out a landline number? See any bebefits to it?

    I haven't had a landline for over ten years. I haven't been window cleaning very long but I seem to have done alright without a landline so far.

    You can get a landline number and divert to mobile costs around £20 a month and no one knows either. Good for businesses looks better I think.

    I also found with a landline and mobile number available; they always call the landline.

    People seem to think you are more professional with a landline.

    I use my mobile exclusively but would like a landline. I don't have one as I would also need a person on the end of it.

    Some people still do prefer landline numbers, so anything that stops a potential new customer contacting me isn't good.

    Were I am, mobile signal is rubbish. Half the time, I don't have a signal :-(

    I hate my mobile ringing whilst am working and rarely answer it. I do find that most calls are to the landline though.

    I am considering using one of those secretarial services they reckon (according to the radio adverts) it cost from 30p per day.
