According to data provided by the Center of Disease Control and Prevention (PDF), landline phones are gradually losing relevance in the United States. The CDC has tracked phone ownership by U.S. households as a by-product of its biannual National Health Survey since 2004. Since then the percentage of households that have a landline phone has dropped from 92.7 percent to 58.1 percent, while the percentage of households with only cellphones has risen from 5 to 39.4 percent.

First it’s pay phones, then phone books, now the home phone will become extinct.
