One of my pet peeves is companies requiring that I have a cell phone to be able to business with them. I have a dumb-as-rocks flip phone I got for emergency use; I don't even turn the darned thing on unless I actually need it (which is almost never) to avoid running up my monthly phone bill (I also never activated voice mail). I have a pay-as-you-go plan that I have to pay $5.45/month to keep it active and just loaded up a balance in it). When a company demands my cell phone number, if I can't get away with giving them a fake one, I ask them if they are going to buy me a phone, pay for the plan, buy me a home that can get cell phone reception, and take responsibility to any identity theft the phone causes. Usually, the response is a lone cricket chirping in the distance.
Oh, no, they want you to supply what the need. :wink:

After the latest bombshell about AT&T, I'm pretty sure you are a lot smarter than me.

They can wait 'till the cows come home (you know, the ones I don't have).
