Does anyone remember life without Cell Phones!

Posted by   + Show Post

I do!  People had to wait to bother you, they couldn't just call you when you were out driving or doing something like shopping. 

Hey I agree it's a comfort to have a phone with you when your driving or out somewhere.  However, often I feel it's a pain in the ass, to have to answer text messages or calls when I am busy doing grocery shopping or whatever! 

Now when someone wants to get in touch, ya don't have excuses to ignore them, ugh!

 I remember those days..however, I turn my cell off at night. I believe that is why I have voicemail. If I take a nap or if I'm somewhere I don't want to be bothered, the phone gets put on silent and they can just leave a message.

Wouldn't anyone over 40 know what it's like to be without a cell phone?

I do remember. My mom used to drop us in the park or the movies until the bars closed. So we had no phone to help get us help if we needed it. I love my phone. I very rarely use it. But I have one son in Africa and my daughter lives on the other side of the country. My fourteen yr old is in four different things in school. Some times he's gone ten hours a day. Some times he's in trips for four or five days. I'd be lost with out updates from him. I have to have a cell.

 I remember life without cell phones but I feel like they have been around forever. I got my first cell phone in 2001 when I was a Junior

of course, and we managed just fine.  I have a very basic cell phone, only use for emergencies.  No one calls me on it because I do not give out my number. I am perfectly fine with my land line.  There are many new things I never caught up with though, including flat screen televisions.
