I was one of the first people to own a digital cell phone. Got it really cheap when they were first introduced in our market(about 2 months after a few other test markets in the U.S. got it). Had it for years, then turned it off last October. Been without it since.
And loving it.
Possible new job has indicated they would like me to get one. I told them they'd have to purchase it for me, and they'll need to specify what times I'm on call, as I do not intend to keep it with me(not just off, but even with me) when I don't need it.
I will no longer be tied to one. Sure, sometimes my friends say "we were gonna call you, but didn't want to wake anyone else at your place" or "we left a message for you at home, but you were out" and I miss things. It's OK. My life's a lot less complicated. I don't talk on the phone nearly as much. Discussions take place in person. I like it.
