    Buddy, I feel your pain. I sometimes feel the urge to strangle people who say phones aren’t for making phone calls.

    I can’t disagree with Abbie… I really use my phone for almost anything except calls. When my provider announced I would get unlimited talk time, all I could think was, “well, that’s nice, and all, but unlimited high-speed data would be a lot more useful, to me.”

    This 39 year old is totally with you, Abs. Using a phone to _talk_? What’s the point?

    I am with Dustin on that one “Yee-ouch”.

    Truth be told I use mostly messenger with only the occasional call during work hours or GoogleMaps to get a clue on where I am supposed to be going.
    Outside of work it’s MyFace Nitflex Baguette and the occasional foray into Pokermom / WoW.

    Lol. I think I’ve had this conversation before. Mostly about texting vs calling someone. I have over 1500 texts sent out on my phone and maybe 500 minutes if actual talking with another person if I stretch it.

    If you want to communicate with me you have 3 options:
    a In person
    b land line
    c e-mail

    …and get those kids out of my lawn.

    Smartphones at a PnP-Gamesnight are an absolute No-Go. Period. If my friends can’t control their attention span long enough to sit through a bit lengthy scenes, they should get professional help.

    God I take such personal offense to that kind of attitude about phones. I’m probably between Abby and Dustin in age, but living in an area that still doesn’t have cell service means I’m probably in the vast minority of that generation who doesn’t own a cell phone and still has a functioning landline. It’s a strange place to be in, for sure.

    Well, of course. Everyone knows that phones were invented by the aliens to mind control us with addictive mobile games that slowly sap the Earth’s resources. Now, I need to met up with the rest of my party. The psionic had this wonderful idea about splitting the party last time we met.

  13. Another item not used for what it was originally used for. Throw it on the heap with screensavers.

    I believe I am the only person in my social circle who still uses a flip phone. I just don’t see the use of a smart phone. I have a tablet for my on-the-go computer stuff, a navigator for driving, and a good camera for pictures. Phones are for calls.

    Honestly, my phone probably gets used as an alarm clock more than anything else.

    I’ve booted players from games for doing this. Hell, I’ve booted friends from game for doing this.

    While I feel similarly to Justin, after years of working on phones, I hate taking calls. XD

    I can’t believe no one has done this yet-

    “Dustin phone home…”

    @ElCapitain.
    Alien here, I’d just like to point out that mobile phones are nothing to do with us. Ok, we are trying to mind control you, but we are far classier than that. Give us some credit – our mind control plans revolve around psionic radiation beamed from a transmitter on the moon.

    ..did anyone, honestly, truly ever say that “Phones are not for talking”? Like, ever?
