Are cell phones making regular phones obsolete?
Asked at Hy-Vee, 4000 W Sixth St. on May 21, 2003
“I do believe that. I’ve been trying to get a phone for the past month and they want deposits and this and that. With the phone I have I buy the card, I get the minutes I need to, and I can go anywhere.”
“Yes, because with cell phones you save on long-distance bills. And, people are moving so quickly it’s easier to just keep your mobile than to set up a phone.”
“No, because they are basically two-way radios that don’t function everywhere.”
“I think they are. You can call from anywhere instead of staying at home. You can be mobile.”
