I should probly explain this- A few freinds and I were driving last night. We were talking about the use of cell phones and texting. What is becoming of our socity that people sitting 10 ft apart use text to talk, the need to feel CONENTED all the time. I said I don't want to be contented all the time, WHY do I

We don't have a landline, so our phones are doing double duty as both cell phones and home phones.

None of your options really work from my situation.

Yes, I have one but I could live without it, it is not paid for by work, I do not only use it in emergencies and I do have a home phone.

I rarely use it out of need but out of convenience but it a convenience that I really like having.

It's a convenience but I think I will always pay for it.

I didn't post on the poll, because none of the responses worked for me.


Yes, I've got a cell. DH's got one.

I said I have one and couldn't live without it. Truth is, most of the time, I wish I didn't have one. But, I'm on my dad's contract and he pays for my portion (that's like $10/month) in trade for work my h did a while back. My dad was annoyed that he couldn't ever get a hold of me because when our contract ended a year and some ago, my h wanted to change carriers and upgrade phones and get a phone himself and all that stuff, which pushed our bill from about $50 to about $250, which we couldn't afford, and since we made changes, we couldn't change back, so we had to return the phones and cancel the contract. So I was running around without a phone and that drove my dad nuts that I wasn't available like that. So, he put me on his contract. Now, I mostly use it so my kids can get a hold of me, since they are home a lot and I'm gone a lot. If my dad didn't pay for me to have my phone, I wouldn't have a phone.

I use mine for long-distance conversations that I could/would not have on the landline.

The way I get around having to deal with phone calls when I would rather not is I give my phone number to my immediate family only. They are the only ones that have to be able to contact me 24/7. Any one else can call my home phone and leave a message if I am not there.
