I've got a Siemens M65, but no kids so I don't have to decide if I give them one

I've got a motorola something. Don't really care about phones at all, they are a neccesary evil in this day and age. Handy none the less, but annoying... and we rely on them way too much.

But to be honest I cant say I am overly interested in cellphones either they serve a purpose but I dont think they are an essential part of my life.

i have one. i got it when i graduated from high school since i got my license and there was no way my parents were gonig to buy me one (fair enough i think, if you want it, you get it)
when i got it i was thinking "ok this is for emergencies only, i dont want to be wasteful with it" then i became aware of how good it was as a communication tool in its own right and i used it way to much to keep in contact with friends.

i never bought into the whole "keeping up with the johnses" phenomenon which seems particularly rampant in cell phones, as long as it can make calls and send sms im happy i dont need anythig more. iv since cut back my use of it to almost nil and (shock horror) started using landlines, letters and alternate communication mediums, which cost less!!

I've had three so far. The first one malfunctioned, the second one malfunctioned, and my current one is messing up already. I have bad luck when it comes to cell phones. Oh well, I'm just glad they give us a year to realize it's messed up.

Stop using them for hockey pucks and they will last longer.
