Gotta say, I don't find $10/month outrageous.
So you non-phone people? How do you reach the grocery shopper of the day at the market to tell him or her that you forgot to put toilet paper on the list?
there are others out there like you
I don't own a cell phone of any kind.....and don't intend to get one in the future. The monthly service cost is outrageous.
In fact, I hate talking on a phone in general, even our home phone.
Am I the only one?
If there was a device that was a fantastic camera, and it happened to have a phone as a not-annoying addition, it'd be the perfect carry-along for me.
I also rather like silence.
I must confess, I don't understand those who need music everywhere they go. I'm not finding fault. I just don't understand why one wouldn't want a break from something one does all the time, no matter how much one enjoyed it.
So those of you who DO use cell phones... do you have a home phone as well? Why? In our area home phones are ridiculously expensive, even for the base plan (I think like 15-20/month). If you take that money, and use it to upgrade you cell plan, I think you would have more then enough minutes. (I have more then I know what to do with. Especially with free nights & weeks, and free calls to sprint customers. Why would I pay for a phone that I can only use at home?
The funny thing is, I use my phone at home far less then anywhere else (except when I am working from home, but since I am working, I count that as 'Office' time).
Just wait, luddites, someday you too will enjoy the benefits of the tech!

No, some of us just don't give a damn!
At the staff lunch the other day there was a whole bunch of iphones out on the tables. Their owners are clearly proud of them.
They are cute.....there's a few mildly interesting games (for a while), being able to make water ripple and fish jump by touching them is ok, I guess.
But...what's the fuss about?
Mind you, I am a mobile phone grinch generally.
I don't know my own mobile number.
I leave it off...my message says there's no point leaving a message (but people do...grrrrr).....
I maybe use it a few times a month.....
Anyhoo...what's good about an iphone?
