Cell vs. Landline: Where do you take your calls?

With 74% of people using mobile at work and cell phones outnumbering landlines 5 to 1, the idea of using only your cell phone for business doesn’t seem as crazy as it once did. Phones are better, service coverage is better and the lack of a pbx system can help cut down on business costs.

How about you? What are you using?
