'Hip'ocrisy?

I have been a leading hater of cell phones (for example, HERE, HERE, HERE, and HERE). Yesterday, I bought one. But it doesn't count. Being a pastor, people need to be able to reach me at home. Rather than paying for a landline, we decided it made more sense to have a cell phone as our home phone for when I move in. It doesn't count as me having a cell phone b/c it will really only leave the house when I am traveling to and back from Houghton in snowy conditions. Also, we got a plan withOUT texting (my most hated element of cell phone usage).

You will learn to love it and be unable to do without it. I know. I used to be like you. (Texting is growing on me as well.)

wow. I knew you hated mobiles, but I thought you at least had one. Congrats on this move.

Haha! I hope you have enough integrity to post when you fall into the temptation of texting! The addiction will hit you before you know it! Just make sure people know you don't have a texting plan. Most people assume that people with cells automatically have a texting plan. *sigh* You know what they say about assuming...

I still hold with the joss wedon theory of cell phones, they were created by some bored warlock.

well I knew you would have to buckle under, I always had a cell phone with my job and it was annoying. Then when I left that job my wife insisted that I get a cell phone because she wanted to be able to contact me any time. Well be the good husbanmd I agreed, well some times it becomes useful. Good luck.

This is like 8 years late, but I hate cell phones too. Luckily, I don't need one right now and hope I never will.
