i disagree. getting rid of my cellphone was the best thing i ever did.
i remember telling people i would not buy another phone till they had color screens and camera's, and they laughed at me.
i've since changed my mind. i'm hard to get a hold of, and i like it that way.
while it is true i could have one and not answer it, that just seems to piss people off. i see people around me annoyed by the little box that rings every time they sit down for dinner. not me, i giggle and continue eating. i can always tell when the lady driving in front of me is on her phone, by her inability to drive a constant speed. my friend got a $500 ticket for talking on the phone in a construction zone the other day, he was sitting at a red light doing nothing wrong. did you know if you were waiting to pull out of a parking lot i would let you in? well, unless you were on your cellphone. then i figure you arent paying attention, so i just go. how about when you're standing there talking to your buddy and his girlfriend calls? yup, stuck standing there with your thumb in your butt for ten minutes. what i reeeeealy dont miss is the bill. i mean, it's like i payed it yesterday, and today i get another one. they do not provide a sense of security, they provide a *false* sense of security, they make you more likely to not notice me walking up behind you with a gun, more likely to not notice the little old lady driving straight at you, your phone doesnt help you in a fight, and it can't change a tire. they can send pictures and access the internet, but are you that addicted to the internet where you could happily sit there and get your fix on a two inch screen? i find 8.9" netbook screens intolerable after a short amount of time
