Yes, I'm a Cell Phone Geek.

I took CNET's Cell Phone Geek quiz. Here's what it said:

Cell phone geek
Face it—you're a cell phone geek. On one hand, it's great that you take the time to know about the technology as you can dispense valuable advice to friends and family. But cell phones aren't the be-all and end-all of human existence, and there's more to life than knowing the differences between Motorola and Nokia. Also, remember that not everyone shares your passion, so unless you're with your fellow geeks, keep your diatribes to yourself.

I have actually expounded on the differences of CDMA/GSM and Motorola/Nokia before, so I guess the shoe fits. :) How about all of you?

Cell phone neophyte
As a neophyte, you know what a cell phone is and what it does, but that's where your awareness stops. While some might find your lack of knowledge refreshing, you might want to brush up just a bit on how cell phones work. Once you understand what it all means and how the technology affects you, you'll be able to make better buying decisions.

You strike a good balance between a cell phone know-nothing and a cell phone know-it-all. You're mostly aware of what you need to know when shopping for a new phone or choosing a plan, but you don't go overboard. It's also a good thing that you can exercise restraint when a trendy new mobile comes out, as constantly breaking a contract won't do your wallet any favors.

Repeat after me, phones have only three purposes:
Calling S.O. to make plans.(two mins at most)
Calling for take out( less then a min)
Calling riding buddies to tell them I'll be alittle late(less then a min)

:mrgreen:

Cell phone? I think I could pick one out in a line-up… maybe. I hate phone calls. I prefer face to face or in writing. And yes, I know why, and all the psycho issues involved. :cool:

Kevin: I'm shocked! :shock:

Mark: I mostly agree. I have one friend that prefers to call me on my cell for some reason (even though I'm more likely to get land line calls), but for the most part, I keep actual calling to a minimum. Nevertheless, I use my 1 MB internet access quota to check up on news and weather, and I take a lot of pictures with the camera.

Ed: Why am I not surprised? :)
