there is a point when you have no mobile.
also, i didnt know that mobile and cellphone were the same thing.
What do you call a mobile phone in Canada?
a cellphone i guess.
i dunno. i worked at RIM and built blackberries.. but that was years ago and these were pretty basic models then.
loved the job though.

I kept my landline and have a smartphone only because I don't want everyone phoning me on my smartphone. I want to keep my smartphone more for very personal usage and my landline easily screens calls with the attached answering machine. Easy peasy.
we just turn our ringer off unless we are expecting a call. or if a delivery is on the way and they might need to call.
other than that.. call display will tell us anything missed.
and if a call says 'blocked number' which it does alot, then too bad it dont get answered.
so that is pretty easy too.. and we never get woken up by phone ringing.
