Cell phone madness

Corner View is hosted by Spain Daily and we are invited to post pictures telling the stories of our different lives and cultures. This week's theme is 'Cell phone madness'. The challenge was to take a random picture of whatever you see when someone calls you, and then post 5 of them.

It didn't ring.


Well it wasn't switched on so that would explain why. Despite what I wrote earlier this week, in my Inspirational Monday post about modern technology, I am yet to be inspired by mobile phones. I do send texts now and then, and occasionally make a call but other than that it's not switched on unless I'm expecting a call which is very, very rare because normally I tell people to phone our land line instead. It's a pay-as-you-go phone and I topped it up with £20 when Sunnyboy was a newborn. I still have £4 credit left on it from then.

  3. Nice bag! I only use my phone for taking pictures and very occasionally checking my emails - nobody even has the number. :)

  4. Lol! Now that *is* good value. I'm averaging £1 a month, but you have taken it to the next level :-D

  5. I went ice fishing yesterday and there was only a small area of safe ice so we were close. Eleven fishermen in two hours had 17 calls. No I was not one - I forgot my phone at home on the desk.

  6. oh well, you could have cheated but you didn't and, yeah, switching it on would have helped ;)

    I'm only being called by contractors and the like these days anyway!

  7. I'm longing for the lives of folks who don't get calls. I've started to turn mine off....

  8. I remember life without a cell phone... When I wasn't home, people left messages.. Now, if I don't answer, people will call until I answer.. interesting!

    Stopping by to say hi!!

  10. Pay as you go phones are great. We are thinking about getting our 12 year old daughter one for Christmas.

  11. I'm not one for talking on the phone, I'm a texter. I keep mine on vibrate in my bra so I know it's going off without annoying people with beeps. I get over 100 texts a day. No joke.

  15. Mine gets a daily workout. I rarely use my land line anymore. I stay pretty much on the go, so I guess it's a good thing to have... or not. ;-)

    XO,

  16. I completely understand. My phone is mostly just for emergencies or for my husband to call me when he needs a ride home from school ( we only have one car). My husband and mother are the only people who have the number, so I don't get many calls.
