Why do people buy mobile phones if they are just going to turn them off?
This was asked me by a woman who sits on a wall I pass on my way to town. She doesn't have a computer of her own, but seems thrilled to know I'm asking on her behalf. So please answer and I will give out a photocopy in due course. Thanks.
Shop by consumerism, by the multiple functions. To relax, to be fashionable.
I live in a remote area-- mostly only use it when traveling, and have it for emergencies.
Also, my sons have phones and I know they can call me without incurring charges (no excuse).
I do turn mine off most of the time when I am home, but I can still retrieve messages that are sent to me.
I have a mobile phone, I never turn it on, except if I need to use it, to, say, tell my wife that I'll be late, phone a repair man if the car breaks down when I'm out driving. As soon as you turn on your phone, you are accessible, I don't want people phoning me, except friends and family, and they all have my home number.
Mobile phone gives you the opportunity to become more accessible anywhere you may be.
