Are phone jacks really needed anymore?

Considering most families use cell phones and the internet is wireless, does a new home need as many phone jacks? What is the protocol these days? One for every room? Only where there may be a computer? Or maybe just in the Master Bedroom?

The protocol would be where ever you want them. Personally, I like having landline wiring and a landline phone. In the event of a major storm, cell towers are often down and/or the networks busy making a cell phone virtually useless, but it really boils down to personal preference.

The electrical code requires at least one phone jack.
