Six people here and <gasp> six cell phones. I'd say it's become a necessity, like eating, drinking and breathing, to have a cell phone. How many of you agree?
Land lines into the houshold are being removed (the 24/7 fax is about to get the boot), soon to be one down from three (not counting a DSL line).

It was strange at first, but such a relief now! :)
>Felt naked the whole day. Of course noone had tried to call me during that time, but still... it could have happened.
You, my friend, are a marketers dream! ;)
Egads... I have a phone in my house and a phone in my office, and I'm in one place or another for more than 16 out of every 24 hours. That's "connected" enough, thanks.
Nobody needs to call me badly enough that I need to be available during the drive to work, or when I go out to eat.... it's not like I'm on call at the hospital or something.
Have no particular use for them.
Which reminds me of a related matter:
Just an hour ago I deleted a piece of UCE/SPAM whose Subject Header said they were looking for distributors of, get this, "Coin Operated Cell-Phone Charging Stations".
<blank stare goes here>
Would have to have three hundred adapters hanging from it to charge different models of cell phones...
Exactly my point. But, you know someone will open that UCE/SPAM up and buy into the concept of becoming a "Distributor", eh? <chuckle>
I've just started a new job (after 2 years working in a building where mobiles don't work) and today I had lunch with seven people. Three of them spent the entire half hour staring at their phones. One of them was texting someone in our building.
I knew mobile's were more prevalent these days but had no idea it had got like this. No one else found it odd however.
I have a landline telephone, never use the default carrier at all. I only have the telephone line as my telco won't let me have DSL without it.
