I've NEVER had a cell phone.
There are the health reasons, $ reasons etc but mainly I've never had one because when they were newer here (in the 90s) pretentious people had them and I wanted to show I had a point of difference.
I was supposed to have one for my previous work but I never got one and never heard about it.
Its not the way I want to communicate with people - they can phone our landline or email me.
I have a cell phone number as part of my business advertising but its my wife's phone - which she hardly uses. Most people seem happy to call our landline number or email me.
My phone is outta minutes and I don't want buy more
WOW ! SO glad to find y'all ! Funny how we always think we're the only one LOL
I've never had a cell. I don't know how to text. When I borrow someone's phone, I always need them to show me how to use the complicated gizmo and then as I put it to my ear I try not to think about my brain getting fried.
Last year--this is total irony here--I took a job working for a raw vegan chef that was going to require facebook and a cell. My partner had been speaking up about needing a cell for his job, so we gave it a try. The job didn't work out after about 2 months (turns out the other requirement was a car and I didn't have one of those either lol), so to my complete relief I ditched the facebook and Cris got to keep the cell, which I never really used anyway!
I have 2 babes. People tell me you have to have one if you have little ones. But my parents didn't have any cells in the 70's-90's while raising us. Also, society is kind, and people on trains and buses and just anywhere have always rushed to my side if they see me struggling with something and juggling the girls as well. One thing that helps is: not having to struggle with a phone conversation in one ear and juggling the girls as well.
Of course, vanishing pay phones is a drag, but I stop at gas stations and offer the attendant $ for the phone call. So far, ever attendant has said yes I can make a call and no I don't need to pay.
As far as facebook goes, I found 30bad instead.
wow - i thought i was the only one in the world who didnt have a mobile phone
love seeing all of you here !
When I decided to get rid of my cell phone, a friend told me "you absolutely need a cell phone." Translation: "I want the convenience of being able to get in touch with you instantly because I have no patience and can't wait until you get home so I can call your land line." I also got rid of my wireless phone and found an old-fashioned phone instead.
I feel so free without mine!
3 months phone free!! Only part that's been hard is trying to convince other people why they too can most definitely "survive" without one...
Yay for no cellphones! People think your weird for not following, but I don't care. =P
