Motorola V180

Motorola V180

Three weeks ago, I was a cell phone virgin.

I didn’t own a cell phone because I didn’t have a use for one, I didn’t want a possible brain tumor, and I enjoy being uncool.

Well today, I’m a cell phone whore. Okay, not really a whore, because I hardly use my phone.

So what made me change my mind?

Well I was talking to an old friend and I told him I didn’t have a cell phone. He said he felt sorry for me. Then I asked him why I would need a cell phone and he came up with an excellent and simple answer: Booty calls.

I thought about that for a second and decided that he may have a point. What if some woman out there wanted to give me a booty call and I was out and about? Without a cell phone, she wouldn’t be able to reach me and I wouldn’t get any booty.

Sure there’s a 99 percent chance of me NOT getting a booty call, but still, there’s that one percent.

So based on that one percent chance, I gave in and got a cell phone.

After shopping around and checking out online the various cell phone providers, I decided on T-Mobile, which a lot of my friends here on this rock in the middle of the Pacific Ocean subscribe to.

Next I had to decide on a phone and I chose the Motorola V180. The only reason why I chose it was because it was free (with service activation).

While doing my cell phone provider research, it seemed like EVERY company was offering this phone for free (with service activation). It seemed like they wanted to get rid of them like it was Anna Nicole Smith’s drunken, pre-Trimspa, hidden home sex tape.

However, I don’t know why they would offer the phone for free because the Motorola V180 seems like a good phone. The talk and standby time is excellent; it has a color screen; and it’s small and light. Plus, it helps me get one percent closer to receiving a booty call.

If there was one thing I didn’t like about the phone, it was the lack of a camera on it. But I figured I really didn’t need a camera on my phone, because I’d probably only use it to take voyeuristic photos of hot women.

(Wait, did I just admit that? I should take that out, so don’t seem creepy. Eh, I’ll just leave it in for now. I can always delete it later.)

  1. How the hell did you survive without a cell phone?

    After a bit its tough to get one without one. A few months back I was out getting lunch for the office and the store didn’t have what somebody wanted. I had forgotten my cellphone at home. I actually had to use a payphone. A payphone for christ’s sake! I didn’t know they still existed.

  2. I don’t own a cellphone. Never want to own a cellphone. Never will own one. If people can’t get me at home/work/my sister’s/my daughter’s/my son’s/my in-law’s/my doctor’s/my gynecologist’s/my grocery store/my drug store/my cat’s vet/or IM me on my computer, then the hell with them! I didn’t want to talk to them anyway!!! But..I do hope you get that booty call marvo…and I’d bet there’s more than a 1% chance of that happening! Maybe scrawl your cell number on a few ladie’s bathrooms on that big rock…see what happens???

  3. Ian – Fortunately, ALL my friends had a cell phone, so I would just borrow their phones. Yes, payphones still exist. Fortunately, there aren’t many phone booths, or as homeless/drunk folks call them, toilets.

    Aymie’s Mom – Um…That’s means I have to go INSIDE the women’s restrooms. I don’t think I want to get arrested for that. 🙂

  4. Sometimes the cell phone can be a nightmare. Especially when it constantly rings! What did people ever do before I got a cell phone? I hate to get rid of it though in case I break down on the road or something.

  5. Marv…you could say you were doing a review on the vending machine in the ladie’s room. Creams & lotions or condoms or feminine hygiene products…er…wait…this is getting weirder and weirder….um…nevermind 😛

  6. I’m technically a cell phone whore, because I’ve had one for years. BUT, It’s reluctant whoring. I could do without my phone. Really, I could. My husband makes me keep it. Yea, that’s it.

  7. Trisha – Gee, I’ve only owned one cell phone in my life and you’ve probably owned a dozen or so.

    Suzanne – Yeah, I also thought getting a cell phone would be great for emergencies. Nah, only joking! I got it for the booty calls.

    Aymie’s Mom – Women’s restrooms have condom dispensers? Since when did women start growing penises?

    strawberrie-shortcake – Oh yeah, I never thought of it that way. But then again, I want high quality photos for that kind of stuff.

    Jenny – Suuurrrre. 😉

  8. I guess I’ve been missing some interesting convos here. Welcome to the world of cell phones. I personally hate them ONLY when its attatched to someones ear 24/7. Who leaves their cell phone ON during a massage? THEN ANSWERS the damn thing. I hate people. Sorry, had to vent.
    Hope you get your booty call soon. Maybe you could post it on a review… wait… that could be a bad idea. Nevermind. 🙂

  9. Wow. No cell phone? I don’t even use it that much, but my cell is like my security blanket. Always there by my side, just in case i need it.

  10. Aymie’s Mom – I’m not going to touch that. 🙂

    Aymie – If I ever do review a booty call, you know it’s going to rate 5 out of 5, baby. (Okay, 2 out of 5. Okay, 1 out of 5.)

    Janet – I also haven’t owned a pager.
