    Default Do you have a cell phone?

    We do not have cell phones. DH has one for work but we only use it for personal use if it is an emergency (calling for him to get milk is an emergency....right?.....lol).

    Do you have a cell phone? Do you both? Do you call or mostly text?

    We both have one. DH has one from work which he can use personally within reason and I have a pay as you go. We are about equal between texting and calling.

    I have a blackberry, and my husband has a blackberry through work...

    So we email, text, instant message, and talk all day long.

    We both do and text all day. We have them because it is the only way to stay in touch while dh works since he's a truck driver. If he worked in an office I would smash mine to pieces. I don't like having one.

    I don't have a cell phone. The last time I had one was over 5 years ago. I just found it too expensive, even when I didn't have a landline. I've thought about getting one in case of emergencies, if I need it when I'm out, someone needs to contact me, etc...but then I think people never used to have cell phones and they managed, so...

    yup we both have them combined we use less than 200 mins per month!! I do a little texting he never does any. I have mainly cause I drive on the highway a lot with the kids and always without dh and often without another adult. Plus it also allows me to be on the go easier with the kids at school and daycare so that I am alwasy accessable

    If I have to run to the store and forget my phone, I go back for it. It's THAT bad!!!

    We both do, but no landline.
    We call each other more often, but if he's at work, I will text him something funny DS did- then he can just check fast, instead of me calling him... I also text pics of DS to DH while he's at work, or if we're out of town... DH loves getting them

    We used to both have one, but one was old and pay as you go. Now that it was stolen, we have one. We only use it for emergencies, and when we need a quick word about something, trying to meet up with someone and can't find them or whatever. I've never gotten into 'texting' and can't imagine I will.

    pay-as-you-go, emergency only. I can't stand cell phone dependancy.

    Ditto - we're either at home, at work or already with the kids so don't see the need. We tend to top up our account only to keep it active or when we're travelling.
