It's not a pre-requisite for owning a home duh... but there are even programs now where you can get a free cell phone with the basic works. so no it's not condescending or an arrogant statement, it's simply the truth and the point is most everyone has a cell. no need to sound the alarms.

Having a cell phone is now a pre-requisite to owning a home or being employed? I wonder if you even realize how arrogant and condescending that sounds?
I guess I just don't understand here? Is internet accessibility on your cell having it do everything for you? It's designed for internet access. I would also think anyone who has a cell without internet access probably has a cell made prior to 2000 or if they don't have a cell at all, probably they don't have a job or home either? The fact is most smartphones require data plans now so internet comes with the package.
What's wrong with wanting an app (if it works right)? Is that the lazy part? I guess if you prefer to write letters than sending a text message then maybe you would think having internet on the phone is lazy and you're so entitled to that opinion, but honestly today our phones are capable of doing so much I don't see why a person is lazy for wanting an app for HD.
Reddy, I live in southeastern Kentucky in what probably wouldn't be considered a metropolitan area, so to answer, yes, I know plenty
of people who don't have cell phones. For one, even with the best plans and providers, the coverage in our area isn't necessarily the best. Sporadic would be an appropriate description I think. I have one, but I only get a signal for about half the drive from my job to my house. Other than that, I may as well be in Siberia, probably get a better signal there. Point being, that there are alot
of people around here who don't waste their money on having a cell phone when they can't use it about half the time anyway.
