  1. Remember the good ol’ days, when someone would holler, “Hurry up - it’s long distance!”

  2. You’d be surprised how many don’t have “modern phone plans”. If you’re a business local to NY, don’t bother getting one, but if you’re nation-wide, it still makes sense (if you want people calling that is).

  3. Am I guilty of assuming too much? I do try to avoid that sin. You’re right, most of the population probably still stick with the same phone plan they’ve had for years; and indeed, the concept of “free call”, when considered out of context, still would have a powerful pull.

    Still, I think its days are numbered…

  4. I do too, but I think it’s a generation away.

    Companies still love them for locale nutrality too, so it’s a different side of marketing there.

    Hell, there are still people who lease phones from the phone company (really).
