I recently saw an ad that if you can't afford a cell phone the government will provide one. That makes my blood boil. It makes the top of my head explode. If you can't afford a cell phone you don't need one. I've seen people whip out a government EBT card while taking calls or texting on a 500 dollar phone! What??? I have a crappy cell phone because that's all I can afford.

Although i believe Cell phones were created as a luxury. They have become a necessity for many. I feel truely lost without mine. I hate that!!! It is the truth though.

Cell phones are a necessity because I use mine as my house phone and thankfully don't have to have a house phone because of it. Also, its comforting to know that when I am out by myself I can call my husband if something was to ever happen to me or the car etc. They are definitely necessary.

We lived without cell phones for a very long time before their invention and life would go on without them. If you can afford a cell phone I think you can certainly consider it a necessity if you want to. What I object to is people on welfare who can seemingly afford to have a cell phone but can't buy their own food, etc... I saw an ad on tv where the government will get you a cell phone if you can't afford it. No wonder we are about to go under.

It's funny how items that were initially luxury items quickly become necessities. There is no way I could go without my cell phone. On the rare occurrence that I forget to bring or charge my phone I feel lost. Sad? Yes it is.

I used to think a home phone was a necessity but we now go without it. Another item I don't know how I lived without is my GPS or dumb dumb as my folks call it.
