I actually only got myself a mobile at all so as to save money. Cheaper than needing a home phone, especially when I make very, very few calls. Doubl-ey so as I had someone buy me the phone I had. Cost me about $10 every 3 months to keep going. Now that the phone I had for about 6 years is dead though I may end up with something a little more functional than what I had (not sure its even possible to buy such simple phones anymore). Receiving phone calls, SMS msgs, and a Commodore64 emulator for those times I find myself taking long train rides should do nicely :)
Near as I can tell this is where I write something under the guise of being innocuous, but really its a pot shot at another persons/peoples choice of Amiga based systems. Unfortunately only I cant see how transparent and petty it makes me look.

@ Nicholas

WOW... that's the first time I've ever heard of a mobile phone being put to good use... :)


Whatever you do, don't read the letter in this months Computer Music magazine from a musician who had a major stroke leaving him with permanent physical disabilities and unable to use his equipment any more.

The iPad has enabled him to make music once more!

That's interesting, and old colleague of mine has between completely deaf since birth and using SMS from his mobile phone made life so much easier for him.


Well that's great, good for him!

I still don't have any reason for a phone myself. What would I do with one? I have no job, no friends and no social life, and I'm always at home if anyone needs to chat with me on the internet about Amiga stuff. To me a phone is just a useless and unnecessary fashion accessory that costs money I don't have.

Nokia E52 here. Love it! Less than 10mm thick and the battery lasts around a week.

Exactly! It really is flat and fast, it even has WLAN and GPS. The camera isnt much good though, for that the N82 was much better. Best phone camera I've ever had.
 
For half a year now I have been able to swap my E52 for a newer phone. But since I really want to stick with Nokia, there isnt much to choose from currently. They really are 'behind' regarding innovation. For a moment I almost got the Nokia N8 but its too expensive and the Iphone4 is still better device. So I guess I havent got much choice.. Im now waiting for a good deal. When is that Iphone5 out anyway.

if you don't want a phone you can always use Skype or get a Google Voice number.

Land line.
I'm either at work or at home, leave a message. No cell reception from where I live to just short of where I go to work. Makes a cell phone worthless for it's intended use. ie. Emergency situations.
Like when I stuffed my car into a snowbank yesterday on the way to work. I'm digging a-way when a woman rolled up and asked if I needed any hand. I said, "Sure, help get me out of this snowbank and I'll buy you breakfast.", thinking that she would actually help dig the snow from around the car. A few monents later with her hand stuck to her head, she said there was no reception, said sorry and offered to call the sheriff when she got into town. Needless to say, I dug the snow from around the car and drove out within minutes of her leaving the scene.

People are becoming too dependant on technology. Small electronic devices makes for lousy shovels.
That's my story and I'm stickin' to it. :D

I actually have no comeback to that... If you ever venture to the UK, we'll have to throw an a.org party... Be good to meet a few more A.orgers :)

@Cammy

My true respects, nice to see someone has the brains to not buy stuff they just don't need.

As for me, I have a landline and my mobile is an ancient Sony K610i. I bought it years ago, it cost over £200 and was top of the range. As one of the first phones with A2DP it still serves as a great MP3 player (with a 2Gig M2 card to hold my songs). The java on it gives me Opera, a periodic table and a scientific calculator, I need little else. I rarely play games on it as I use my GBA for that and I can watch the odd bit of news, get google maps and train times. I have no reason to upgrade and with a good box of spares, including screens I doubt I will buy a new mobile for a good few years yet. It's outlasted many newer phones my friends have bought due to superior build quality, including Apple iPhones. When I do buy a new one it will be a hardened satellite phone. If it ain't built to last, I don't buy it.

I use the most hackable phone available atm, a htc hd2, it came with window mobile 6.5 on it which was ok but have since tried ubuntu, windows phone 7 and android, currently running a desire hd android rom on it, due for upgrade soon but think i will keep this phone and sell the upgrade.
