Hey, I recognize those faces! GB's very own David Elfving and Sandor Weisz appear in a Chicago Tribune story about dropping "land-line" phone service in favor of wireless. "I thought about drawbacks, such as my cell phone battery running down," Weisz said. "So I decided to go six months using my wireline as little as possible. After I evaluated it, I canceled the service and haven't regretted it."
