I am right now. Only because I am surrounded by people that own them.

I definatly could live without it, I mean i did without before, but now its so convienient that I wouldnt like not having one. Where i live we have a sweet deal all of your local calls unlimited for 45$ per month (with voicemail,callwaiting display ect) so basically I dont need to have a house phone....good for me less bills!!

That does sound good. But I wouldn't know because I don't pay a phone bill. I was spoiled and had someone that was willing to pay for it. I finally told this person that I didn't need the cell phone anymore. Plus, we needed to cut back.

No, I can't. I need it to talk to my bf for free. We have the same service.

Ah, that is nice to be able to talk to another person for free. Whoever made up that plan is great. Well, hope you talk to him for a long time. Get your free money's worth.

Since cell phones weren't 'common' in my mispent youth, having one or not having one is only a matter of convenience for me at this time. I did have a mobile phone in the truck for a couple years and later a hand held cell which was more convenient. At this time I don't have a cell, feel no need to own one, and if I find that it will in the future be a convenience once again I will then purchase one and impliment a service plan. Many things we have today we think we can not live without. Yet those who came before us did just as well, if not better than we do today.

That's what I'm saying! It's nice to live with this convienence, but before us, they had it worse. Even back to when they had the pony express. Can you imagine, getting your mail in a month. That is strange. I meant the mailing system was slower than it was today. So many things have changed.

Hahaha, so you would rather: not live without the internet. I think I would have to agree. It's the fastest way for me to connect with family and friends from out of state.

yes i can. but i don't think that a businessman can. when u have a cell phone you are a slave to it. every time it rings you must answer. i don't wanna be a slave to any mechanical device.

I agree! You shouldn't have to "answer" to this machine. It's like me and the computer.

That's why I decided not to get one again. I wasn't using it like it should be used, on a daily basis. Plus I would get a lot of dropped and missed calls.

Ya, I agree. But circumstances won't let me have one, just yet. It's all about convienence. Looking for deals for phones though.

So, is it possible for you to live without one for a day. And what sort of security does it give you?

Yes I can. Not in work time. :)

Not in work time? Do you mean to tell me that when you work you simply must have the phone on you? If this is what you were trying to say, then I would have to agree with you. If your line of work required that you needed a phone, then it would be wise if you carried one with you.

i probably could. i mean, i've lived half of my life without it, so i don't see any reason why i should depend the rest of my life on it. although, i have to admit, it has made life a bit easier now, but still, i don't think it's everything.

That's great! I think in the back of people's minds, not every person though, they are thinking the same thing. They just would not want to give up the time it saves them.

So how long do you think that you could go without a cell phone? Also, I didn't get the second part of you sentence. Did you mean that the changes in your life right now do not allow you not to have a cell phone?
