Cell phones

I've always hated the phone. When I lived alone, back when cell phones were still a luxury item, I'd turn off my home phone for days at a time, and just check the messages once in a while. I hate the way they ring, in that insistant manner that compels you to stop whatever it is you're doing, and pick it up just to make the goddam ringing stop!

I hate the phone because everytime it rings, there's someone making it ring, and they want something from me. I hate them for that.

I got my first cell phone ever, last christmas, and I hated it. It died about two months ago, and I felt free again. So this christmas, what do I get? Another fucking cell phone!

I resisted as long as I could. The last thing I ever wanted in my life was to carry a fucking phone around everywhere I go! But now, when you say you don't have a cell phone, everyone looks at you like your a freaky technophobe.

God Damn fucking phones!!!!!
This one is even more complicated than the last one. It's worse than my computer.

I have a prepaid phone. I probably pay like $20 every couple of months to keep it going. The minutes are more expensive, but I have the luxury of telling people "Ah, fuck I'm going to have to let you go because I ran out of time on my phone again." no matter how much I have.

i'm sort of like tiggr, when i'm at work i don't bring my phone, we don't have a house phone, but with a family and children, especially when in school a phone is sort of necessary...

but when i was working in the call center, i hated the things.

My cell phone is my only connection to anything. I move a lot and am on the go a fair bit so for me it's extremely handy. I hardly get called by anybody so it's alright.

I have a pre pay. I bought the cheapest phone I could find. Never understood why people would pay $800 for a phone that can take shit photos. I'd much rather spend that $800 on a decent camera...

I have a cell phone. I hate my cell phone too. Infact because of this damned thing people can call me at 1 in the morning and scare my white ass out of bed and onto the floor. I'm just glad I only get one phonecall a month on average. and it usually is realllllll early when I get that one phonecall. people can be real assholes when they get your phone number

I have one but it's never turned on.
I only carry it with me in case I need to call home or in an emergency.
I don't want to be reached wherever I go, when I'm not home, I'm not home, call me back. Annoying all those loud people yelling into their mobiles, we do not need to hear your private conversations which are usually about nothing to begin with.

Same here, I wouldn't like to have a contract and be compelled to pay a set amount even if I didn't use the damn thing!

I have a love-hate relationship with my phone. My boyfriend and I got on the same plan so we can talk to eachother for free, which was great, because he was the only person I talked to on the phone. I just moved from MN to San Diego, and my mom is always calling to check up on me (I'm the oldest and she's having a hard time with it). I love talking to her, but I hate her calling me at 5am. I know it's 7am in MN, but even 7 is too early! Now that I'm so far from home I like to keep in touch with my friends, so it comes in handy, but I hate paying the bill for it. I want to chuck it, but I don't want to lose my connection to home. As an added annoyance, my boyfriend and I don't even use our phones to call eachother anymore, seeing as we live together. Buh.

Can't you get super cheap land line deals to call home? Why use a cell phone if you aren't using it to be mobile?

I could get a land line, but why? with all the long distance calls I make, I'd have to find a great deal in order to switch. Besides, I'm addicted to the games my boyfriend just put on my phone.
