Do you have a mobile phone?

Please don't think I am being rude etc, but why does everyone assume every person has a mobile phone?? first of all you need people to call to use it.


This post by realspeed on the 'No Internet' thread got me wondering...

Do you have a mobile phone? Do you use it much & what for?

Re: Do you have a mobile phone?

I forgot to say I use mine every day.

In with my contract I get 150 minutes of free calls and unlimited texts.

I make all my calls from my mobile and usually send about 6 texts a day on average - sometimes more.

My Mobile Phone is stationary most of the time, in my pocket, it is only mobile when I am.

Re: Do you have a mobile phone?

I have a smart phone which I don't get on with and rarely use.

I'm seriously thinking of changing over to a PAYG basic phone.

Re: Do you have a mobile phone?

I have a smart phone, I pay 9 per month for unlimited texts, unlimited calls and some data. I used to pay 23 a month till I phoned them and told them I was moving to another company, they then did a deal with me, I got a bargain!

Re: Do you have a mobile phone?

I use mine all the time. However, I totally understand why people don't want one. I didn't bother with a personal smart phone until about three years ago. I had a work one for a lot longer. Once you have it you're sucked in to the zombie world. I've had a mobile for over twenty years but I never used it that much other than texts until the smart phone malarchy. Smart phones are handy but also totally invasive. I often wonder whether they are listening to conversations (not phone calls). Because you will be talking to someone about something and then there's a blinking advert related to your off line chat.

Re: Do you have a mobile phone?

I use mine all the time also - it's my mobile office, my diary and calendar, contains Apps to help with my job, is my web browser for when I'm out and about and is also my SatNav using Google Maps. Oh, I also use it to make phone calls and send text messages. 10 per month SIM only deal for unlimited texts, 500mins of calls and 4Gb data.

Re: Do you have a mobile phone?

Mine is on a Vodafone plan for three people. 3 Samsung Galaxies for an average of about $140 per month. We all use them a lot for calls..text..Google..camera..music/ spotify etc. I use mine for quite a few apps..Guitar tuner, flashlight etc. IT's the handiest thing I've ever had.

Re: Do you have a mobile phone?

We've given up on a home phone. Didn't seem to be much point if you have a mobile of some sort. My wife and I have one each, they cost about $20 a month and I never use it up and any unused carry over , so I have currently about 1350 minutes surplus plus unlimited texts and I forget how much data but I've never run out so far.
