I use my cell phone all the time. Look for products, communicate with friends all over the world. Take pictures of my travels. Find my way from A to B.

I use it as a tool just like a car. Not sure why people have issues with the advancement of technology. It is neither good nor bad. Depends on how it is used.

x2, it's by far the most versatile tools I carry.

I'd love to ditch it, but it's way too handy.

My cell phone is a tool...one used often. Once I figured out how to block all calls other than those numbers in the phonebook, I've been pleased with it.

Why ditch something that is so handy?

There are call block.spps. I use one. It has to learn th numbers. As they call, I put the number in the app. If they call again, it.goes straight to voice mail with out ringing. Takes time.to.lesrn the numbers but my spam calls have dropped.

I get hammered by robo calls from local area code numbers...it seems that the credit card company is very concerned about my ignoring their ability to bring my rates down, or some crap.

Since I started blocking them through the ap that Verizon uses, I haven't had "Jason from Microsoft" in a very telling middle eastern accent calling me to tell me that my computer has a virus. The last time he called, I held him on the phone for over 35 minutes before he finally said that he knew where I lived, and that he would show up at my door. He then spewed out a few expletives and I hung up on him. Had him on speaker the entire time...wife and kids were fighting to stifle laughter the entire time.

I always think it would be fun to troll them but I just cannot over come the reflex to hang up. One day ... one day.

I highly suggest that you do...it's quite fun. Now that we're living with and caring for my mother, she has become the audience of my phone antics, since I now handle all incoming phone calls. She now anticipates the calls, waiting on me to start my crap with the caller.

Hey, if it gets mom and my wife laughing, my job is complete for the day.
