I have one of the basic LG cell phones. I do not ever intend to go to a smart phone unless forced to. Honestly if I forgot my cell phone it isn’t the end of the world unless there I am traveling. Then that is a different reason altogether since I am usually traveling by myself for work and need to make sure I can get help if I needed it.

I hear ya! I hate being accessible all the time. Sometimes I long for the days when you could just leave the phone off the hook and no one could reach you.

As much as I love my cell phone, I *love* when we go camping and there’s no where to charge it and I can keep it off for a week!

Hm. I don’t use mine as a phone. I only really use it for internet. It’s also my iPod, GPS, grocery list maker, alarm clock, airplane entertainent, e-book reader, point and shoot camera, online banking, recipe finder, on-the-fly price checker, parking finder, I could go on and on and on.

So….yeah, I don’t agree with you for my own personal needs :-).

The GPS function alone makes my iPhone a wash in terms of cost.

Love it! I have a “dumb” phone and its the best. I just make calls and texts. No pictures, internet, gps etc. If I leave it in my car all night or forget it somewhere ..oh well! My whole life, social security, credit cards, accounts are not linked to a piece of electronic plastic.

@crayfish:  yes, this. i love having access to the internet everywhere i go!

if i don’t want to be reachable i just don’t answer. nothing says you have to answer a phone just because its ringing.

Up until a month ago I didn’t even have a cell phone. I don’t know why they are such a big deal? *Shrugs shoulders*

@SweetHoneyBee:  ditto. 

I wonder what it was like when people didn’t expect me to respond in an instant.

I just upgraded from my old school flip phone to the Droid Bionic and it is easily one of the worst decisions I’ve ever made. Great, my phone can play movies and do my dishes but making a simple phone call is almost impossible and the keypad is a nightmare to text on. Ughhhhh.

I do too.  We have 1 between the two of us, it is actually a “prepay.”  We have to drive to the store to add minutes on it!  We hate them!
