Easy, phone. My cellphone is a TracFone Motorola flip phone. No camera, no internet, no angry birds...
I can receive text messages, but sending them is a nightmare, so although I've received a few texts from models in the past, I've never sent one. I buy a 60 minute card every three months and have accumulated over 1,600 minutes on the thing.
I was inspired to create this thread by an article in Popular Science which states that many "Millennials" (people aged in their late teens to early 30s) have foregone getting a car, choosing to living in town instead.
Hey -- I do that. I live downtown, 3 blocks from the supermarket, and walking distance to everything, including theater, concerts, art museums, galleries, shopping, doctors, dentists, restaurants, what-have-you. I gave up my car a couple of years ago, and I don't miss it. No need for parking, insurance, gas price hikes, etc. If I want something big, I just get it delivered. If I really need a car, I am signed up for Zipcar, but I haven't needed it for over a year. It's amazing how much stress is removed from your life when you don't have a car.
Working from home is terrific, too. It's not for everyone, but it suits me.
I'm not a fan of smartphones -- I think they are just too distracting, and they've created a whole new class of rudeness & danger (specifically, texting & driving). If I want to play, I can do it here at home -- if I'm out & about, I don't need it (although a reliable GPS mapping app would be nice.
You might think of me as a throwback -- I think I'm just ahead of my time.
My phone card ran out last month and I let it go for more than 2 weeks before getting another one. It was kind of liberating. I live 16 miles outside of town so giving up the car would be a problem. Giving up the cell phone wouldn't be.
Definitely my phone...I'm about to rip the SOB out now anyway. When you have a business listing/home number on the same property, the "no-call list" doesn't help you. Hell should keep it's fires going with the carcasses of telemarketers.
I still believe the business advice that a stone and mortar business shouldn't go with just cell phone and especially not in a rural area with poor cell coverage.
Besides, I use prepaid at a cost of $20.00 every three months and the last time I used my cell phone I noticed my account was over $238.00 dollars to the good. Finally, if I were to give up my car, how would I transport all my gear for photo gigs?
