Cell Phone - Intro
I love my phone. My friends are on speed dial which means I can get in touch with anyone at anytime. Even when phones are technically against the rules, I can still text a few messages to stay on top of things. To dress up my phone, I've found a few different covers I like, and I alternate them depending on mood. The red cover is for spicy days, the yellow is for cheerful days and the black is for the more basic day.

The phone goes everywhere with me, including school, work and the car. I really would feel lost without it, and I notice that others must feel the same way. As much as I love my phone, however, I have noticed recently that some people might be taking cell phone ownership to an entirely new level.

Cell Phone - Advanced Phone

Cell Phone Wars

Now, I'm not going to lie. I have a pretty decent phone. I change ring tones occasionally and can access the internet if I wanted to, although I don't. (I'd rather spend my minutes elsewhere.) My phone isn't top of the line, but it gets the job done. For other people, including some of my friends, cell phones are more like jewelry. The must have the latest and the greatest, and then they find a way to show it off.

I don't know how many times I've watched someone make a very grand gesture of checking messages and just "happen to mention" that their new phone cost $350 and how their parents will just DIE if they lose it. Frankly, if I were a parent on the verge of death, I don't think I'd trust a $350 phone to the particular girl I'm thinking of, but I digress.

Unfortunately this trend is much like any other. My car is better than yours. You're still wearing THOSE? I can't believe your parents won't buy you one of THESE phones; they are so much better! Girls will be catty at times, and cell phone wars aren't any different.

Cell Phone - Rude Hillary Duff

Cell Phone Rudeness

Show-offs aside, I have noticed a few other things that drive me nuts about people and phones. I should point out that I try very hard not to do these things since I complain about others doing them.

    The Screamer – Why does she think we all need to hear the entire conversation? This girl doesn't just talk on the phone, she practically screams on it. These people also seem to be in places where you just don't want to be forced to listen to their conversation anyway – like in a very long line.

    Stall Talkers – Okay, I've gotten one or two of these calls before. Yes, perhaps you have a chance to sit down for a few minutes in a bathroom stall, but can't you just read graffiti like a normal person instead of calling your nearest and dearest friends while…um…in the act? A toilet flushing in the middle of your tribute to your newest crush just seems to take away the meaning somehow.

    Cell Phone - Screaming
    The Stopper – You're walking through the mall or at school and it happens. The person in front of you is having some sort of deep conversation on the phone, or the phone rings, and they stop. Instantly. And half the time you practically run into them or bump into someone else avoiding running into them. The best part? The stopper just keeps standing there in the middle of traffic, oblivious to all the people that now have to go around her.

    The Princess – When you're on the phone, the world does not wait for you. So why do some people think it should? How often have you heard, "Hold on, I have to take this," in the middle of a moving sob story or maybe while you're just hanging out together. Then, because you apparently have nothing better to do than sit around and wait on her highness to finish giggling on the phone with someone else, your "friend" talks forever and says, "No wait! I'll be off in a second," every time you try to leave.

Cell Phone - Summary
I would hope that nobody out there is guilty of these cell phone crimes, and if you are, perhaps now you realize just how rude they are. We've all done silly or rude things from time to time, but that should just motivate us to avoid making the same mistake in the future. Cell phones are great, don't get me wrong, but they should never come before a real person or a real friendship. They are supposed to help build friendships, not put them on hold.

I don't really care about cellphones. They were invented for people to talk on. I don't see why people can just get a mini camcorder, and/or a digital camera, if they could afford this $350 phones. My cell only has text and talk. I don't care, I only use it for emergencies.

i have..well..had a cellphone..and it was just about awesome. it definately bothers me when people rub how their phone is better than yours. i like having texting..its a QUIET way of chatting and relieving boredum (especially in school) and some eliminate having to carry a camera and a computer along with you..i mean thats a little ridiculous especially if your like me and dont carry a purse/bag/anything. but like in reality..i think its the most amazing thing ever. because if your stuck/stranded/scared/alone its good to have someone on the phone with you just to reassure..or call for help..or anything..i dont think kids under a certain age should have one though..because it goes to their heads "oh i have a cell i can do anything or im better than you..you have to wait 2 years until your responsible" its just ridiuclous. but the greatest invention ever in my opinion

I MISS MY PHONE!!!!!!!!!!!

My best friend has a problem with her cell phone--she can't hang up on people. I love her to death, but sometimes I wish I could just smash her phone so she couldn't talk anymore. She fits the description of the "princess" in the article. ;-)

I got a Razor with music capabilities for Christmas. I love my phone, but don't use it often. Only to call my mom or step-dad in case of an emergency or something and to listen to music on the bus going to and from school five days a week. I guess I need more of a social life, but I'm too shy.

One thing I absolutely hate about some people is how they answer their cell, and they talk on it for what seems like ten or fifteen minutes and they have you to talk to! I mean, come on! My mom does that a lot on her red Razor phone. If your curious, my family uses Cingular Wireless.

I'm not bragging or anything. Or at least, I hope I'm not!

This is probally one of the good reasons why I don't have a cell phone.

When my friends have their cell phones on them, they know or fear on what I'll do to them...if they act 'The Princess' in this artical.

I have a Pink Razor V3m. And I have to say in my school about foour or five girls don't have a Razor phone. Ever since I got mine at Christmastime it seems EVErYBODY just HAS to have one. It's weird. I like my phone and all, but I kind of lost interest in it when everyone started telling me that i copied them by getting the same phone. SOme people do need a life though. They practically LIVE on theirs. I particularly hate it when people smoke and chat away on their phone at the sam time. Some people are just so rude!

Well anyway good article. It has a good point, with an oh-so-sad truth behind it!

I don't even see why people care about their phones. When it comes down to it, it's still just a phone. It's not good grades, or a great job, or a best friend, or a boyfriend/girlfriend, it's just a phone. Also, if you want to go on the internet, use a computer (except for emergencies), if you want to take pictures, use a camera (again, except for emergencies)! I have a phone but only use it to keep in touch with my parents if I'm going somewhere (like on a bike ride).
