Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

Still rocking the DynaTAC.

Thanks to up-to-the-minute tracking, I don't track my package so much as stalk it.

More than 10, I'm old enough to have had 5 land lines in the house when the kids still lived with us before cell phones. And I out lived at least 5 cell phones in the last 15 years.

Yep, that's why I keep my old rotary dial in the closet. Any time I lose power I dig it out and plug it in, lol

i don't think i've ever bought a phone in the strictest sense of the term. when i left home for college i used the pay phone in the dorm. my mom had an 800 number for her office so we could talk for free. i did have one of those nokia 'brick' phones but you only had it in case of emergency. you didn't even keep it turned on!

as years went on i upgraded to a flip phone, then a razr, then an LG that had a keyboard, and then an iphone 4S. all of those phones were 'free' with our phone plan and all were turned in. six months ago i finally had to upgrade from the 4S due to outdated OS and now i have an iphone SE. i don't own that either!
