I don't carry a mobile phone.
The cost benefit ratio is so obscenely bad that it is unlikely that I
will ever carry a mobile phone except when it is absolutely required by
my job (ie, they won't hire me without one).
I make about two calls a month, so each call costs me $25. Furthermore
there is an increased risk of cancer from the radio waves... All of my
ancestors lived happily without one so I, too, am happy to not have one.
