Do you have one? Do you need it?

I ask because I often feel like I'm the only teenager without one. I'm not sure if that's a good thing or a bad thing.

They're incredibly useful. I was one of the last kids in my grade to get one, which kinda sucked, but yeah it's really helpful.

I didn't have one until I started driving, and even then, i rarely used it til I was a senior in high school. Since then, however, I use it quite regularly.

Now, I don't have a home phone, because I live in a dorm, I rely solely on my cell as a primary means of communication with my family and friends as well as business contacts.

I have one, and used to use it all the time. But when everyone is reachable on MSN all the time, such as in this day and age, I just use it at school.

Don't have one, Don't really have a want/need for one either. If someone wants to communicate they'll call my house or send pigeons.

I have one and I really have no use for it anymore, I never phone anybody and don't text that often.

If you have friends it's probably worth getting one but If you don't then it would probably be useless

I have one, but don't use it too terribly often, even though it's my only phone (I live by myself and don't have a landline) but yeah I would say that for me it is an essential, even though it doesn't get used a whole lot.

As for me, I've got one but I don't use it as much as most people do.

Yeah I have one. It's convenient, but you don't need one.

I do not own a cell-phone, but I do want one. I'm always needing a cellphone to arrange band practices though. So when I do get one, it would probably fall under the "I have one, but use it on occasion"

I have one and my boyfriend does not. Don't feel bad, I know a lot of people who don't have phones and they're pretty well-off.

I didn't get one until the end of 10th grade... And that was only to make it cheaper. (It costed less to add a line to my parents plan than to have their plan and a landline. So now we don't have a landline.

I use it quite a bit...

I've a phone. Only use it to call my friend to meet when I'm out somewhere or for my parents to pick me up. I used to use it like 24/7 though. I got grounded every month because my parents had to pay like 700 bucks every month. I used to have this sucky phone where the screen would only show up like once every day

nonsense! I only had four until december 30th.

edit: it's not like I'm some spoilt twat whose parents buy loads of expensive shit, I'm just a sucker for new technology, but I can never afford good phones because I earn like £20 a week.

I don't have one, but two people I live with do. I can see why they are useful because I occasionally have to borrow them. But what you see of other teens using them is just teens wanting to be part of the crowd. I don't need or want to call my friends every minute, I prefer talking in person to my friends and oddly, online chat... Anyway, its up to you and you only. Do you need or want to be in contact with certain people when you're out? Are you constantly away from public phones or your house phone and find yourself needing to call someone for a ride or something?

I can see the advantages of a phone, but I have no use for those uses. I understand why people love iPhone, its a multimedia device. But I have my PSP and its good enough for what I want and need, which is music, video, pictures, games, and occasional internet.

I'd die without my phone. XD

Cell phones are generally just a convenience. If you're still in high school then you probably don't need a cell phone unless you have a car and job. If you're in college or live on your own, you might as well have a cell phone rather than a land line.

It makes life easier. I use it to communicate with coworkers.

I have one but rarely ever use it. 9 times out of ten that it rings I don't answer it though, because I like to be left alone.

This is how I am. I have it for important things, but I refuse to answer just to listen to someone at a bar drunkenly slur a bunch of sh*t that means absolutely nothing for 20 minutes. I'm not being nasty, but it's just not my thing.

I guess I'll be the first one to say that I live on my own and am in college AND I actually use my phone quite a bit. I text friends throughout the day, call my girlfriend at night, play games, and use Internet on it like right now. Not to mention coworkers can always get in contact with me if **** hits the fan.

I have one, mostly for calls if I need to in an emergency.

I also text, but just occasionally.

i have one and use it a lot.

id hate to not have it. being in college now im away from home a lot, so having a cell phone is really convenient. plus i can keep in touch with my friends a lot easier. i mean i text my friends all the time.

Don't have one and don't need one.

Can't say things would be very different if I did have it...

I have the cell phone that does everything conveniently (interwebz, music player, navigation, weather, gas prices, etc.) and it makes phone calls.
