No land line Is required.

The first thing I would do prior to purchasing the Straight Talk wireless home phone unit is to go in to your local Walmart and see if they carry it in house. If they do carry the unit in house, there is a good possibility that the unit works somewhere within your area. If they do not carry it in house then you need to do more research to see if the unit will even work in your zip code. Please note: you must purchase a $15 card each month in order to make calls with the unit.
My experience was this: I went online walmart.com and put my zip code in to see if it would work in my area. It said it would work in my area BUT IT DID NOT. When I went in to my local Walmart store, the associate working in electronics (seasoned Walmart employee) told me that the unit DOES NOT WORK in our zip, which is why our store does not carry the unit or the $15 monthly cards.
If the wireless home unit will work in your area, then I say get it and try it because $15 for unlimited phone calls in US is outstanding. I pay 25 monthly through my cable company and I was trying to shave 10 bucks off my monthly phone bill. I wish it would have worked...
Carol, the Straight Talk Wireless Home Phone is totally independent of a landline phone. It is a cellular-based service. So, no, you do not have to have a landline now.
This service card, however, only provides service to the Straight Talk Wireless Home Phone device. If you don't already have it, you can see and purchase it here for $69.88 (copy-and-paste):
