I know that this is a subject that has been beat to death, but... I was always one of those people that thought the non business people with cell phones were absurd. The only reason I purchased one was because it made economic sense, being less expensive than a land line for me. That makes me rather new In June of 2002 I purchased a StarTac 7868. I went with this old school phone because every time I called my Father on his, it sounded great! At first, I ALWAYS left the phone at home because I was going to pretend that is was a land line. Funny thing is, my best friend had a cell phone when we were in high school, (93’) but I never got one. Since I’m writing a paper on this subject, I’m curious as to when and why you purchased a wireless phone? I am more interested in those that were not provided by your employer. TIA.
