About 14 months ago I moved to a rural area that had no cell phone service available. To be totally honest ,after the first month, I adapted and have not missed the phone. About 6 months later cell phone service was established, in the area, by a new company and I have not and will not be getting a cell phone. It is not part of my life anymore. For many years I couldn't imagine not having a cell phone now I can't be bothered getting one. I'm free and enjoying the quiet.
