I'm looking for a phrase which means 'home telephone' or something like that. A phone which you can have installed in your house and which isn't portable. What is its name?
Thanks for the quick reply.
"Landline" is used here, too. But it is also understood what someone's home phone is. For instance, in my mobile phone I can store in a "contact" information for a person's work, mobile and home phones.
Very interesting name, indeed.. Specially according to our language....
If I asked for someone's home phone and they might tell me they only have a "cell phone" or "mobile phone."
In other words, if one did not have a landline, one would have to explain that to someone who asked for their home phone.
"Can I have your home phone?"
"I don't have a home phone, only my mobile."
