One of our people were over from Australia a couple of weeks ago and her Aussie boyfriend dumped her via text message. Cold and he waited until she was on the other side of the world. That's techology.

Re: Am I the only person without a cell phone?

I've now had my tracfone for about 7 months. For a while it was 100% free because I would refer other people through a web site and get free minutes. But that program has been discontinued.

We use a total of about 10 minutes per month, and it's been pretty useful.

However, if something goes wrong, it's one more thing for which you have to call tech support. Email support questions usually come back with a "Call tech support" reply.

One thing that I can say for cell phones is that they eliminate the "NO, I said we'd meet at the store on FIFTH street!" problems.

Aint that funny how that is?

You think the email tech support guys for every company have figured out thats all they need to do to shift all their work to the phone support guys? :

"Gosh guys, if I wanted to sit on hold for 20 minutes from 9am to 3pm eastern standard time in order to talk to someone who has no interest in my problem nor any idea of how to solve it, dontcha think i'd have gone ahead and done that?"
