Welcome to this user forum.

Thanks.

There will always be a phone line, as that is needed for the broadband.

A physical phone is not essential, but is recommended. You do not have to leave it plugged in unless incoming calls are expected.

 A cheap wired phone for less than £10. Its really useful in an emergency as he  can dial 999 or other important numbers, and also to check if he ever has a line fault in the future, or a noisy phone line, which will affect the broadband.
