When will incoming landline calls become less intrusive?

Wednesday, February 18th, 2015


My cell phone brilliantly manages the levels of intrusion for all my incoming communication. Mobile phones offer fascinating options for vibrations and notification sounds. You can set different songs to different caller group, vibrate in various intensities, and even set permissions around which apps get to notify you at all.

Why then is my incoming landline still so disruptive that it forces me to stop everything and deal with it?

Lets hope that Google, Apple or Facebook take over traditional landlines soon. I am sure they will do a better job managing the disturbance level. I would encourage the PMs on Facebook Messenger to think about various levels of importance or VIP status for notifications.
