    Cell Phones

    I just got the new Nokia color phone, and I must say that I am heartily impressed. My last nokia kina blew, but this one is great. If you're getting a cell phone, I'd suggest you get this one - it's very spiffy.

    What kind (if any) cell phone do you guys have?

    I have the LG VX6000... a camera phone. ^^ It's neat.

    I liked my old nokia... to an extent. It was sturdy and practical, but the reception really sucked :\ (though I guess that was more likely my service provider than the phone itself)

    None. A cell phone would interrupt what little serenity there is in walking in random directions on either a college campus or in my little patch of sprawl called a suburb.

    Motorola C331.. Though it's a shared phone between my sister and myself, I normally keep reign over it most of the time.... Though I suck and no one ever calls me.
    <ClothHat> My sister started rummaging through my wallet
    <ClothHat> And dubbed Nessa "NaNette"
    <ClothHat> Luckily it was the respectable looking picture in my wallet <_<
    <DerKaiser> probably the non-schoolgirl uni one.
    <Frame> did nessa give CH nudes?
    <ClothHat> Yeah
    <ClothHat> No
    <ClothHat> NO

    <Dragonessa> ooh!
    <Dragonessa> something that applies to me! day to get graduation tickets!
    <Dragonessa> and my cap and gown!
    <Dragonessa> huzzah!
    <ClothHat> I wore my hat instead of the gown :P

    <Bill_Clinton> TD, maybe your sister is a pervert, and wants you to bone her?
    <Tenchimaru_Draconis> Hmm, maybe
    <Tenchimaru_Draconis> I'll have to test that theory
    * Tenchimaru_Draconis is afk

    <Ryuujin> <ClothHat> I looove nuts <ClothHat> Nuts as in testicles
    <ClothHat> Not as in testicles!
    <ClothHat> Oh wait

    I have a Nokia 3130, not like I really need it, since I lack a life.

    I just got the number; The Nokia 3589i. Very spiffy phone. The battery lasts a lot longer compared to my old phone.

    I do not have a mobile, since it would little avail my life. If I get a position at the library, though, I may considering buying one so that the library may more easily contact me when work is available.
    And if ye meet, yea, wheth’r afar or nigh,
    A lady fair that should your succour cry,
    Or damsel young that peril mayn’t avail,
    It you behov’th her welfare not to fail,
    If she require of you a knight’s servíce;
    Her worship whole ye shall warrant to kiss.
    Whoso a woman’s honour dare forsake,
    Shall lose his own. Fie, I pray Death him take!
    Ladies and damsels serve: this counsel hold,
    And worship shall ye have as bright as gold.

    Argh! Cell phone moochers! My friend used to do that until his wife made him get a cell phone - two working parents having a child in daycare will do that sort of thing. ha ha.

    I have a Nokia, but I'm not sure what sort of phone I'll be getting when I change plans (or providers).

    I have a very basic Nokia, like the least expensive one. It's very utilitarian.

    Siemens ME45. It is switched off unless I'm calling somebody, which I rarely do. I don't phones. Cell phones least of all.

    Nokia is bad. They make cell phones that break down constantly. They also make cell phones that look like tacos. I don't like tacos.

    I never used Cell Phones for anything other than speaking & as the alarm that wakes me up in school days, so my old Strike is still doing a good job. Its battery is in the last weeks of its life, though, and there are none in the market for a fix, so I'll have to get a new one. I'm thinking about getting one of those that are a palmtop and a cell phone at the same time. I don't care about colors and cameras.

    lol, I'm totally a cell phone moocher :P I like, am the lord of pay phones. Give me a pay phone and I'll blow up your goddamn HOUSE. Or at least find you. whenever I have to talk to somebody and am not with someone with a cell phone, it's always this huge ordeal to figure out their number, and shit I don't have a piece of paper OR a pen, I'll have to slice my thumb open with my teeth and write the number on this five dollar bill...SHIT, where did it go...oh right, these donuts (true story btw except for the blood :P)...

    sometimes I think it's good to have to do that much work, but that's usually after the fact :P

    "...In lieu of copulating he creates; in the circle of his influence conflict is stilled and the harmony of a profound peace established. He is able to love not only individuals of the opposite sex but all individuals, everything that breathes, in fact. This quiet sort of triumph strikes a chill in the heart of the ordinary man, for not only does it make him visualize the loss of his meagre sex life but the loss of passion itself, passion as he knows it. This sort of liberation, which smashes his thermometrical gauge of feeling, represents itself to him as a living death. The attainment of a love which is boundless and unfettered terrifies him for the very good reason that means the dissolution of his ego. He does not want to be freed for service, dedication and devotion to all mankind; he wants comfort, assurance and security, the enjoyment of his very limited powers. Incapable of surrender, he can never know the healing power of faith; and lacking faith he can never begin to know the meaning of love. He seeks release but not liberation, which is like saying that he prefers death instead of life."

    Yea, it exists DT.

    I'm most impressed with the battery for this phone. I was on the phone for 3 hours and the battery was only down a bar, whereas had that been my old phone, the battery would have died after about an hour. With the color, that's super impressive. Or maybe my old phone just blew balls..
