Not me. I got one for emergencies. I usually forget to take it with me when I leave the house. Most of the time it just sits and the battery goes dead. I can't hear it in the shop or on the tractors so what's the point of carrying it?

I suffer from Ophidiophobia. It's getting to be that time of the year when the rattlers are looking for food.

I keep leaving my phone at home, which rather defeats the object of having one really.

I guess I'm suffering from forgetophobia.

As my grandson constantly tells me: 'The clue is in the word MOBILE (cell across the pond, I believe).'

Wife and I each have a cell phone, she's on hers a lot, me rarely. I'd like the days with phones wired in and if you're outside no one can contact you.

For a bunch of supposed geeks, we sure don't play the part with mobile devices and social media

We are the smart geeks. Quality tech over quantity of disposables.

Ha! It seems to be a running joke where I'm at, the IT guys are the ones with the oldest, crappiest mobile phones. On the other hand, we own all the new spiffy computers and stuff.

Personally, I find a complicated handheld device self-defeating: it takes too much time tinkering with it. All I need my phone to do is allow me to contact people and vice versa, end of story. Everything else is just a distraction or could be done way better on a laptop or something.

Doesn't surprise me that kids depend on these things the most; they can afford blowing so much time on these things because they don't actually have to work for a living.

When I got my first computer, back in the days when dial-up Internet was pretty much the only choice for a home user, it came with what seemed like a nifty speed-dial program for the modem. You entered the phone number, labeled it with the persons name, then had one-click dialing for all of your contacts. Along with the time it took to enter all the phone numbers and adding in the time spent opening and closing the program, I think I could have dialed hundreds or maybe even thousands of phone numbers manually.

It was cool, though - and that was all that mattered!

(Until the day the computer crashed and I lost all the settings. Faced with the prospect of re-entering all that crap again I said the hoots with it...)
