    I Vant to Be Alone......

    I just can't stand the idea of people being able to get ahold of me all the time.  I'm old enough to have gotten through most of my life just fine without a mobile phone.  The very brief period of time when I tried to have such a phone ended with the phone in the...

    It Feels Good

    i've always hated the feeling of people being able to contact me whenever they feel like it. i had a cellphone for a couple months, but i got disgusted with it and stopped paying for it. i feel like if i want to talk to someone, i'll call them. cell phones are supposed to be a...

    But i want one so much!

    my parents won't get me one because they say I'm too young. When I say all my friends have them they say a. you don't have that many friends and b. If they all jumped off a bridge would you too? I wish I could convince them to get me a phone.

    Nor Does Anyone I Live With..

    I guess it's unusual to not have access to one at my age. But I avoid asking others, so this is the way it is.

    I Kinda Want One Though...

    I only have an iPod Touch. not one of the newer cooler ones where you can take pictures or anything even. I don't want to ask for cool technology because of my adopted parents not being my actual parents... and I'm grateful enough for them taking me in... I don't need expensive...

    I don't want to be hooked to everybody else's

    problems, yet I love people. I guess it's the superficiality of it that turns me off. If cell phones were being used for spiritual growth, how awesome it would be!

    Not For Me...

    Sure I'd love a cell phone but when your fingers don't work there's not much sense having one. But if my fingers don't work how am I typing you're probably wondering. I'm typing with the side of my pinky knuckle.So I won't be entering the world of texting or apps or smart phone...

    Why?

    I just can't bring myself to pay so much for something that I really don't want. I can just borrow other peoples' cell phones when I need to. And I don't want people to feel they have the right to contact me at any time, no matter what I'm doing or where I am.

    Not Essential

    I don’t have any particular need for a cellphone. Why would I pay for something I wouldn't use very often?

    My old one died some time back

    and for a while, I just kept putting off replacing it. Now I'm deliberately going without and it feels good. I may eventually buy another one, but I'm in no hurry. :)

    No Cell

    So far I haven't needed a cell phone. I'm typically close to a phone either home or work. And in between I enjoy my uninterrupted free time. So I have no plan on getting one.
