Although it seems like everyone has owned a cell phone for many years now, I have to admit that I just recently got my first one. I know it sounds crazy, but to be honest, I don't like talking on the phone and thought people would call me constantly wanting to chat. While I try not to dwell on the past, I regret not getting one sooner because I ended up in a bad situation when my car broke down in the winter and had no phone to call for help. I had to walk miles to find the nearest business that would let me use their phone to call a tow truck. I want to share my story and my other phone tips on this blog. I now embrace the technology, because I realize that cell phones are important emergency devices and not just for chatting.
