As my family knows, I've been without a cell phone for almost a year. I gave mine to my 14-year-old daughter. I thought I really didn't need one since I work from home -- but there have been times when I've been out running errands that I really could have used one. Before when Gary couldn't reach me at home he would call me on my cell and the first thing out of his mouth was always "Put the fabric down and step away from the counter." Well, he got new phones for both of us today - Yeah! They are slider phones. Our kids were laughing at us trying to use the darn things. It has a joystick butting instead of up and down arrows -- so sensitive. It's going to take some getting used to, but I feel like I'm back in the real world now!
