    Mine In Particular

    It turns itself off, yet is still on.  Just you can't receive or make calls nor send or receive texts.  That is all I want the phone for It is touchscreen, yes, i would be happy with that, but sometimes it refuses that and then you have to use a button to navigate...

    I have no real use for cell phones at all.

    I have to have one for my job, but even then I only make 4 or 5 calls a year with it for work. Mostly I just use it to call in to work or home when I'm running a few minutes late. The flip phone I've had living in my company car for the last 4 years finally gave out last week...

    Actually, I Hate Cellphone Users

    Almost every time I am at the movies or theatre, there is always some bozo who leaves their cellphone on.  And everytime I am on a bus or train, there is someone talking so loud on their cellphone that they don't even need the phone.  Don't people realize how this...

    Progress? I Think Not

    I remember a time when people were out in public, and needed to make a phone call, they would go into a sound-proof booth. They would shut the door and have their conversation in private.
