    Default question about cell phones / safety

    
    I'm surprised it has that many, LOL. They are a safety factor.

    When I was starting to drive, many years ago, you had a problem, people would stop and help you, and you could accept that help. Nowadays, no one will help, and you are afraid to let anyone help because of all the weirdos....thanks, I will keep my phones.

    My husband is a truck driver too and I feel much better knowing he has this phone with him as he drives at night. Our plan has free nights and weekends so he doesn't use hardly any minutes at all.

    My oldest daughter just passed her written test for her driver's learners permit. More now than ever, I feel good about her having a phone on her. Our town has ONE payphone, thats it!

    Default question about cell phones / safety

    when cellphones were still pretty new, my sister got my niece one. One night her

    and her girlfriend were driving and were being followed by a guy in a car who

    tried to get them to pull over. The girls were able to call the police from the

    cell phone. The police told them what street to turn down and when they did they

    were met by 3 cop cars and the man was pulled over. I don't know what ever

    happened or what the guy's intentions were but thank God it ended safely for the

    girls. Things can and do happen. They aren't always this dramatic, but cars do

    break down or get flats. I like knowing my daughters will be able to call for

    help and remain safely in their car until it arrives.

    Can't put a pricetag on that.

    amen,



    my daughter and I had a scenario very simaler to that, our car was being

    followed, and being able to call my hubby who was also on the road, made all the

    difference in scaring those fools off.

    That's true. I've always said that any female needs a cell phone. They just

    don't have to be cell phones that run into $50 plus per month, especially when

    there are many plans out there that cost much less than that. if the purpose of

    the cell phone is truly "for emergencies" or for "incidental" conversations,

    rather than talking all day with one's buddies, there is no reason to pay such a

    high price for traditional cell phone plans. The Pay as you go plans are perfect

    for "emergency" usage.

    for most people that's true, but hubby has to have nextel for work, and it

    didn't make since to go with a different carrier for just the kid, since it only

    costs us $20 a month to add the kid. I just made more sense for us.



    But everyone has to look at their own situation, and ONLY their own.
