Am I the only one here who has NEVER owned a cell phone?

Seriously, It seems like every one "has" to have one. Even most kids/teens have them. I've never had one. I kind of think it's cool.

  • Wow! You and my mother! LOL! I don't blame you; once you're "always connected," it's hard to be disconnected. However, it seems people are losing social graces as a result. People stopped greeting each other years ago, and now everyone's "connected" on a phone/iPod, etc. so no one even makes eye contact anymore. Keep up the fight!

  • Wow. I don't know many people who have never owned one. In fact, I don't think I know any!

  • If you don't need one, you don't need one. Pure and simple.
    I'm an oddball in that I never use mine. I don't even know the number. I charge it up once a week and store it in my bag "just in case". I have used it to call a tow truck and to call my husband when I was running really late once but that's about it. For me, the Tracfone pre-paid plan is great.

  • I didn't get one til I was 18. If you don't need it then that's good! One less bill to pay. Some people can't function without theirs so that makes you unique!

  • I resisted for a long time until I started travelling for work. Even then I didn't go for a "cool" one!
    I bought my dad one when he was 65 because he moved into a mobile home without phone access.
