Americans Leaving Land Lines Behind

More Americans are cutting the cord to their home phones and going wireless.

Early results from a new "National Health Interview Survey" found more than 22-percent of American homes ,more than one in five, ditched their landlines and used only wireless phones in the first six months of 2009. That's 2.5 percent more than the previous six months.

The survey also found that one in seven American homes that had a landline received all, or almost all, of their calls on wireless phones.
