Umm, no. Landlines do pay on a per-call basis. My landline billing is or was last I checked, something like “6 per call for the first hundred calls, 5 for calls 101–500, 4 for calls 501–1000, 7 per call after that. Long distance additional (and per-minute)” Even at best it’s “unlimited flat-rate service only for local calls” so you better hope the callee’s phone number happens to be local or you’ll be paying that per-minute fee (or using long-distance minutes if it’s billed at a flat rate) So yeah.
