What's it to you?

I prefer cell phones, haven't had a hardline in going on three years. Here's some reasons why:
  • Portability
  • Caller ID (to help censoring out unwanted/bad timed calls)
  • Long Battery Life (with the amount of calling I do, I can recharge every 4-8 days
  • I've dropped the damn thing so much and it never breaks!
  • Comparable pricing plans to hardlines
  • Voicemail access from any phone


This is all with a phone that was given for free with my pricing package. I can call from any state to any state at no charge (using free minutes) and service is almost never a problem using verizon here on the west coast.

It is a commonly known fact that ALL cellphones have GPS tracking chips in them and that data is recorded by certain "businesses".

I will never own one, ever. 




that is one reason i hate cell phones.
in between my classes, i usually have a long walk across campus. i always see this strange army that marches with the right hand held to the ear and the elbow held high in the air.  :lol:
another reason is that when you are out with people, they sometimes sit there talking on the phone. that is annoying.

this girl i was out with a few weeks ago was knows i don't like cell phones, so she was telling me how she doesn't like them either. she said she'd rather talk to the person/people she is with. 10 mins later her purse rings. out comes the phone and a 40 min conversation with her girl friend that she is going to meet in a couple hours anyway. she had to go outside (it was too loud inside), while i sat at our table by myself being bored, finishing my drink.  :mad2:

just as i stood up to leave, she came back in all happy and wanting another drink and wanting to dance. i was pretty irritated, so i left anyway. she still doesn't understand why i left.  :confused:

i think phone companies would have better more profit making things to be getting on with than tracking your every move

I know how you feel man. God only knows how many times i have been in a room with 5 or 6 people who are all on the phone. So fucking rude. And now people walk around with those hands free things strapped to their head. Sometimes I wish we could uninvent things.

You can thank government interference for the cell phone tracking. Bastards.

My mom bought me a phone when I had to bus by myself for an hour and a half at 11 at night. It was originally a safety precaution... for if I got stuck at a station or something... but now I kinda resent it. I still use it coz I've gotten used to the convenience factor, but I'd rather never have had one.

Would anyone have an idea about how I could make/buy a cellphone disrupter (If such a thing exist) That would disrupt cellphone reception? Of course I would'nt use it,that would be illegal!!!!!
I know of someone that solved their problem of radios playing religious crap at work by making and using a small FM transmitter. ; )
Does something similar exist for cellphones?

I'm sure you could make something, you just need to create a frequency that is the same as the cellphone's.

FUCK CELLPHONES

I had one in lieu of a hardline for a couple years. Eventually, I decided that I needed internet access in my house so I wouldnt have to spend so much time at the non-marijuana-friendly campus computer lab. Since cable internet is not available in my apartment complex, I had to get a hardline anyway (for DSL). And i was not about to commit myself to spending over $150 a month on phone service.

So I got rid of the cell, and I must say i do not miss it.

When i had the cell, people would call me all the fucking time... at work, at school, on dates, in a club... It gets fucking annoying!!! All these people calling me whenever they damn well please... Always asking me dumbshit questions: "Why does my computer do this", "Why does my boyfriend do that", "Can you hook us up with some dope, J?"

And the whole behavior of the caller changes when they know they are calling a cell phone. Because they know: its a cellphone. You are always "there". If you dont answer, they just call again... and again... and again...

And then, when you finally see the person you've been ignoring, you have to put up with all these acusations and shit. "Motherfucker, I know you're ignoring my calls, dude... its a fucking cellphone..." And none of my commie pothead bum friends can comprehend the idea of going to school and having a job and maybe not being able to answer your phone all the time...

All those reasons, plus the tracking system shit. Fuck big brother. I'm out. Peace.

peace, pot, and microdot!

The only people that need cell phones are drug dealers and doctors. Since I will never be one of those I will never have a cell phone.
I hate phones. Especially since I got hit by a stupid bitch on a cell phone while riding my bike. And since they have put up cell towers all over where I live. I want to see the fucking stars at night, not your red message light flashing. I would rather use a cup on a string.

I got a cell phone.

I am a slave to it too. I want to get rid of it because I get calls all the time. I should just get a home phone line that is broadband connect. its cheaper and I wont be bothered by it.
