Everybody has got a cell phone these days.With affordable pricing and different models,people can easily purchase one according to one's budget.I cannot live without my cellphone.I stay miles and miles away from my parents and friends.Everyday I need to talk with my mom and dad.My best friend would call me often.Also,I hardly find time to go and meet my relatives who stays somewhere near by other than keeping in touch with them through phone.It has become as my only means of communication.I text message my friends since it is cheaper than calling them up.How about you?

I can live without cellphones! I even sold my cellphone a few years back.Its just depends on the person.I dont like texting and if i want to call someone theres a phone.But its really useful though,but you can live without it.

I stay in girls hostel,so there is no lanline phone facility for us.So, purchase my own cell phone.Even I don't like to text much but I have to since it is cheaper and free if I purchase text messaging package.Good day!

yes, i can live without a mobile phone....anyway im having nokia 5300 mobile...coming to the question, think abt the older days without mobiles, people used wired phones(land line) for communication for speech processing...due to advancement in communication medium, the mobile phone prices have come down and the networks are giving cheaper plans....i agree with u in sending sms, it costs only a few amount for a month and provides more sms ....it was the reliance who first introduced mobiles in india....but i can live without mobiles, i wont forget the past years, where people dont even have land lines...they had a good communication...its all depend on our mind set to live with or without mobiles... Guna, chennai, india happy mylotting....

Since I have had so much trouble with landlines, I opted for a cell phone. Other than being rather expensive, it is very convenient. I lost my phone, temporarily last night. I couldn't find it this morning. I was feeling uneasy because not only did I misplace the phone but I wanted to call my Mom. I don't think that I could live without my cell phone, no. Unless I got another land line, which is still an option. Even then, I think I would keep the cell phone too because it is very handy when I am not at home or when I am on the road. I like the idea of having the cell phone when I am traveling by car just in case I get into any sort of mechanical trouble.

Easily. I like having it more for emergencies but, unless I lived in a super rural area with no pay phones, houses, etc., I could easily live without it.

I didnot have cellphone when i was a highschool student,so it was difficultly for me to talk with my parent and i had a lot of bother finding a call.Finally,I got my own cellphone which was bought by my family,and I'm so exited about that.Unfortunately,it consumed most of my money after one month later since I always communicated with my parent and friends.After that,I understand how to use a cellphone reasonable and never waste my money.Now I must spent much time using my phone with my workmates,so I needn't to worry about the purchase seriously.Generally speaking,I enjoyed my time of using the cellphone and I believe it is the most useful implement in our life.
