Am I the only one who doesn't have or want a cell phone. I can't stand the damn little things. I really think they're a scourge of society. When people have those things on there ears, they're completely oblivious to what's occuring around them. And I haven't ruled out the fact that they cause brain cancer.

I have two. I dont WANT either of them.

One is for work, one is personal (but its my only phone, so I keep it).
Link Posted: 3/10/2006 8:46:05 PM EDT
I only have one for special needs. I have a Virgin mobile pay as you go type. I spend about $20.00 every 90 days.
Link Posted: 3/10/2006 8:47:21 PM EDT
I have one and wish I didn't. But you can't get by wihtout one nowdays.
Link Posted: 3/10/2006 8:47:27 PM EDT
I don't like them, but I have two.

One is my .mil issue work phone, and the other is for emergencies.

If I have to shoot someone to defend myself, I don't want to rely on other people to communicate with the police, and I certainly don't want people to see me leaving the scene, even if it is just to track down a phone.

No cell phone

I have one, but my wife is the only person who has my number. I only use it to speak to her.

No cell phone here. AFter being 10 years on pager duty, I certainly don't want a cell phone.

I bet you still use a slide rule, don't you?


I agree, there are some people that can't chew gum and walk at the same time...and these are the same folks that shouldn't be able to use cell phones while driving. I'm still on the fence with the cancer thing, but I wouldn't at all be surprised.

I had one a long time ago, I ditched it. I get bitched out now by everyone for not haveing one

You try living over 300 miles away from your wife for the last six years.

Me. I had one for a while, but never used it. I dont even like answering my landline phone.
Link Posted: 3/10/2006 9:01:17 PM EDT
No phone here, don't want one either.
Link Posted: 3/10/2006 9:01:41 PM EDT
I don’t have one, nor do I need one.

No Gotsa.

No wanta

Probably going to get forced into one pretty soon, though.


IHATE the damned things.

no cell phone for me
Link Posted: 3/11/2006 11:33:02 AM EDT
I don't, although I wouldn't mind having 1 for emergencies, but I still don't. I don't care to contribute to the increasing problem of all the towers that are ruining the landscape and views here.
Link Posted: 3/11/2006 11:34:30 AM EDT
I finally just got one this year. I leave it off mostly and use it only for emergencies.
Link Posted: 3/11/2006 11:35:45 AM EDT
No cell here either.

I don't have a problem with them, until some jackass pulls one out on the golf course

Cell phone free and intend to stay that way as long as possible.

It seems to be just a big fad to me anyway. Give the sheeple this technology and tell them what it is and why they can't live without it and they herd to it. Cell phone use/dependence is learned behavior. Just depends on what you want to learn and what hassels and expenses you want to put up with in your daily lives.

Believe me...I don't need to be that connected! I hardly even answer my land line these days as 50% of my incoming calls are telemarketers (WTF ever happened to the "do not call list" BTW).

And contrary to popular opinion, you can get by without one these days.

The only way I would even consider one is if I am ever in a situation where I can ditch the land line and go to something like CABLE/VOIP. Since I live in the boondocks, my VOIP options are zilch, NIL, nada. Even if I did have VOIP I could probably get by without a cell just fine.

Biggest reason though is I would probably lose or misplace the damn thing the first week I had it.

I was cell phone free up until about 4 months ago. I keep it in the center console of my Jeep and rarely take it with me. Or for that matter turn it on. My wife gives me a raft about it and the people at work ask me if I ever return my calls.

I've lived without one before and don't really want one now.

Can you Hear me Now?,,,, NOPE!
Link Posted: 3/11/2006 11:57:20 AM EDT
None for me, except the old one in the glove box to make 911 calls on...

I know people who spend $200 a month on their cell phone
Link Posted: 3/11/2006 12:03:58 PM EDT
I have one but don't want one.

Screwed up, ain't I!

I hate talking on the phone, I hate cell phones, but I'm scared to not have one. It has saved my ass more than once (my truck has caught fire twice out in the middle of Bum Fuck Egypt) and has enabled me to do some things that were kinda important that I would not have been able to do without a cell phone. Eg. report a robbery in progress, report a tornado.

I still hate it and hardly EVER use it, though.
Link Posted: 3/11/2006 12:04:22 PM EDT
Didn't have one until I went to work for a cell phone company...It is VERY cool to be able to take pictures of my kids and be able to send pics to both sets of grandparents from the front yard
Link Posted: 3/11/2006 12:09:05 PM EDT
I hate cell phones.

I have one I keep in the car for emergenices. Tracfone model that costs about $5-10 per month.

Link Posted: 3/11/2006 12:14:11 PM EDT
i didnt pay my bill and it was disconnected for a month.

I didn't miss it.
Link Posted: 3/11/2006 12:21:43 PM EDT
I dont have one, I might want one, but not at current prices.

If a monthly cell phone bill ever gets to about $20 a month unlimited local calls at any time then I might consider getting one.

If 9-11 didn't prove to you that you should have a cell phone then you are an idiot. I was in total denial until that day. Those HERO'S on the plane that crashed in PA used the ultimate modern suvival tool...

the cell phone. I had one within a week. It's just a tool like a firearm.

My company requires me to carry one. They pay for it but it still sucks. It always rings at the worst times.

When I retire I will live in the hills and you will have to have a 4WD to visit me.
Link Posted: 3/11/2006 2:19:44 PM EDT
I have 1 because we have a young child and if something happens we can be reached anywhere. Plus my mom is getting really old so being able to be reached in case of emergency is about the only reason. That and it is nice being able to log in when I am at the beach thru my laptop to check e-mail, surf, etc...
Link Posted: 3/11/2006 2:21:19 PM EDT
I have one but it's for emergencies only. I consider it a survival tool. (that is until you can't get a damn signal)
Link Posted: 3/11/2006 2:32:29 PM EDT
I have an older cell phone that I don't have service for... I keep it in my range bag along with some medical supplies just in case I get hit with a ricochet.
Link Posted: 3/11/2006 2:42:29 PM EDT
I have one , but I don't carry it around . It pretty much
just lives in my vehicle .

I also programmed it so it displays a name instead of a number
when someone calls . If I don't see a name I programmed . I don't
answer

I've seen you make referrence to this on several occasions, you are either insane, or a genius, I haven't figured out which, at one time I thought you must have a 'little something' on the side, then I saw your wedding pictures and figured you'd have to be an idiot to chance screwing that up!!!

(sorry for the highjack.. )

Ditto. I pay half as much for my cell phone as I did with a landline with long distance.
Link Posted: 3/11/2006 2:56:16 PM EDT
The only reason I have one is that the company supplies it. It's a Nextel/phone that is for the boss, and others in the company, to get ahold of me on the various jobs.

If I hadn't gone to work for this company I wouldn't have one. But now that I, do I've gotten used to my wife being able to call me at work when she needs to talk to me.

i have two. i have two jobs. so i have one for each. and a verizon wireless connection card for my laptop. the cell phones and the wireless pc card mean i can drive to the mountains or where ever during the week and still be at work. so for me its a freedom thing. makes life easier. biggest issue is not using them unless i need to. i dont get lots of calls and i dont make lots of calls.

i control them and use them to make life better. they don't control me.
