• they don't have cell phone bills
  • To each his own. The only reason I finally switched is due to the fact that I found one that's cheaper than what I was paying for my landline... though it hasn't worked out that way so far.
  • They have more peace and quiet and don't have to be driven by the technology.
  • I don't have a cell phone, don't need one. Barely use the regular phone, besides, there's no reason someone like me needs to be in full contact with the world 24/7.
  • They're blessed. One less thing to be dependent upon.
  • They might not live where they get reception, like where I live. They might not want the extra expense. They might just think they are too much of a nuisance. And they might not want to be bothered all the time:-)
  • Umm, I'm one of them! I mean I have the cell phone that you pay the minutes on but it's hardly ever on since I do not want to be contacted all the time but they do come in handy during emergencies.
  • Any thoughts about people who don't have a job?
  • They're smarter than the rest of us. : )
  • They are strange, maybe they dont have anyone to talk to.
  • They don't have to pay another bill that we didn't have 20 years ago. They don't need to keep in constant contact with friends and family.
  • My brother doesn`t have a cell phone and he doesn`t need one. He lives in a small town with a small population, if somebody wants to talk to him or find him it`s easy enough. Maybe life is better that way.
  • Yes!! They are Luddite Commie freaks who must be indoctrinated at any cost!! Just kidding, I hate my cell phone. I wish I didn't have one, but I keep it handy in case of emergencies.
  • I used to own one, I still have it but it's been disactivated a long time ago. Somehow, I manage to live my life without it.
  • I don't have a cell phone. I don't need one. It's a personal preference.
  • More power to them! :)
  • I don't have a cell phone. myself and my little brother are the only two in our family that don't. i don't need one, but sometimes i do. my mother says we don't have the money, and we don't. if i need to use a phone then I'll just use one of my friend's cell or just find a regular phone to use. :)
  • I have wondered how we ever got along in the 1900s without them, we managed just fine in the "ole" days! lol
  • I don't have one. Used to, and it annoyed me. Impossible to get some peace and think.Never miss it, never miss the bill, either! People act like they own you when you have one. Cell phones are part of the de-socialization of our generation.
  • Smart. Cells are convenient, but not a necessity of life. We got along without them for many years. They just brainwashed you into believing they are necessary. That's good marketing. Many people don't know this, but if you buy a repeater home station at your radio store, you can get some hand held repeater radios. Then you can dial up a repeater and use the radio like a phone. You could call anyone that way and have no monthly bills. You'd need a book with all the repeaters numbers so you could do this. It may cost you a few grand, but it's a one time expense. Anyone into ham radio will know about this.
  • We'll believe it or not. I just got my first one yesterday. And most likely I would of never gotten it, if it had not been do to a FRIEND of mine who thought I needed one. So that FRIEND got me the phone & told me all it was to cost me. Was ten bucks a month, because it is on my FRIENDS account. I could not turn down the offer. Even tho I am a Ham radio oper:. And have made most of my long distance call that way. Now I've got a new cell phone with free unlimited calling. What more can I ask for?.................. :-)
  • I could care less
  • When someone tells me they don't have a phone, I look at them askance.
  • No need for them around here, for we all have CB radios that do the trick for free. Those belt telephones seem to be more of a big city thing where the CB is more static and mumblygretsch then clear communications.
  • I think people who don't have cell phones have more control of their lives, and don't let others intrude on their time without being invited.
