not sure i need one, tbh. not sure most people REALLY need one, unless it's vital for your job of work or sutin, idk. for me, it's not really, i just use it to periodically keep in touch with mates and that, sometimes to arrange days/nights out at short notice, that's about it.
think i'm gonna turn it off for a month, leave it in the drawer. everyone's still got landline numbers, innit. only worry is if there's an emergency and i'm uncontactable.
do any of you vegans live without a mobile, or have you ever tried it? seems a bit lame that people can't even eat their dinner without checking them nowadays.
