    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...

    Call Me If You Can

    My cell phone was stolen about five years ago and ever since I didn't bother to replace it. I don't really need it since no one really calls me but if they need to get in contact, it's through my brother's cell phone or the internet. However, my family member have been...

    Not Essential

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

    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...

    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.

    THE LOOKS I GET, when I tell someone I don't

    have a cell phone. I have to assure them that I don't after they think I'm kidding. "If you don't want me to have your number, all you have to do is say so" is usually a common response that I have to deal with. LOL people take it personally sometimes I guess. The reason I don't...

    Do You Answer Your Phone In the Bathroom?

    I don't own a cell phone and have no desire to get one.  I used to have a cell phone about 10 years ago and although I will admit its convenient at times, it's also very disruptive at other times.  I know people who find it very hard to shut off the phone, and...

    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.
