I hope that was a joke 49. Obviously, being that OP is from Singapore they use different terminology for the phone battery being dead

Who still calls them cell phones? They're mobile phones. Get with the 21st century.

Nah, most of them are celluar. But they also have those satellite phones that communicate with satellites instead of cell towers. It's the people who call cell phones satellite phones that don't know what they are talking about.

Maybe that's where I got my lines crossed. I was only half-listening to the woman at the store but she told me most of their phones were not technically cellular. Thanks for the lesson, FYLDeep.

Since you guys brought up the topic of phones, I know a lovely website that depicts pretty girls shoving all manner of phones into....interesting places. I would gladly e-mail anyone pictures. ;)

None of this stuff matters anyway since everyone knows that banana phones are the future. I think they work off of gamma radiation or something.

Where I'm from, nobody calls them cell phones. They're mobile phones. The name you use for a phone has nothing to do with whether or not you're up to date with everything in the 21st century.

Any phone that isn't attached by a wire is mobile, including ones in homes and offices that you can carry around, but they won't work once you get so far away from the base. So that's a bad way to describe them too... So if mobile is not specific enough and cellular is (apparently) wrong then what should we call them? :D

Hey there's no way us Americans are gonna call them mobile phones! Come on, you want us to pronounce a whole nuther syllable! WTF! I'm just gonna stick with "phone" or maybe even "fone", possibly "iPhone" (got mine yesterday woohoo!) but I'm not gonna pronounce a whole THREE syllables. It's un-American!

Where I live if you called it a "mobile phone" people will look at you funny. I have never heard anyone say that around me. Nobody cares if it's accurate or not it's just called a cell phone.

I don't know anyone who calls it "mobile phone", it's always "cell phone" or "cell". It's even written like that in forms and applications, but I suppose it's all a geographical thing.

Ugh, I know what you mean my mom does that too. If I walk away for like two minutes she starts screaming my name all over the store it's so freaking embarassing, but that's just love. :b haha
