After a long hiatus I have finally re-entered the world of cell phone ownership. I have a Motorola W490 for anyone who cares about the tech specs. I gave up on keeping up with phone technology a long time ago. I don't care much for having a way for people to contact me at any given moment of the day. I understand the benefits. It is great to be able to make those emergency calls when needed, or call home and ask what my wife needs me to pick up from the store on my way home. These conveniences are nice, but they will never make up for the awkward intrusion I feel when my phone starts ringing while I am in the bathroom, or when it blares out in a quiet meeting when I have forgotten to put it on silent mode.
