What is life like without a cell phone?

I don’t know anymore. I own a Samsung Galaxy.

But I didn’t always have a cell phone, so from that perspective I think you’d be happier. People would only be able to call you when you were home. You’d probably have an answering machine.

You could go out and watch movies and not have to disturb everyone else when you pull it out to see who texted in the middle.

I grew up without a cell phone.

We did have landlines, of course, but not even answering machines. If they called and we weren’t home, nobody answered.

They’d have to call back. There was no message to listen to.

We had to share phones. Growing up and having a girlfriend was hard, because all the other family members would want to use the phone, and you as a teenager just wanted to stay on the phone all the time.
