I suppose that you know that you can get IP phones that look exactly like traditional pre-WW2 phones, with all the cables you desire. You can plug them into any network interface, so that you can move around wherever you are, while keeping your "fixed line" phone active wherever you are.
"Look like"; doesn't work for my old dial phone.

I guess this depends somewhat on your IP phone model's ability to register remotely with your ISP when you plug it it somewhere, and your ISPs willingness to accept moves. But if your ISP is as flexible as it ought to be, you can move around quite arbitrarily, and your IP phone land line will work everywhere you go, wherever you plug it in.
My ISP wouldn't recognize that type of phone.

And to repeat what I already said, owning a telephone is not required by law. Doesn't matter to me if the (official) sites require a phone number. I don't need to enter one. If the official service is unavailable without phones, I send a mail and ask for explanation.

--edit
Even the tax man complied. There's no laws saying you need to own a phone. If there is, I expect to receive a phone from the government; but I do not have any reason to buy one, nor to own one. I get along fine without those.

I'm not getting phone calls during work about "job opportunities". If I had those, I had to bill their fakkin' arses for wasting my bosses time without permission. Job opportunities aren't part of the sprint.

So NO, I don't have a phone. But if I would, it would be an old fashioned wheel-dial, that has no idea of IP whatsover.
