So why do you assume that cell phones are that popular. They do not work over half of the country?

Hum?
85% have cells phones! most have dropped landlines.
Only places I’ve found they have limited service is in the desert, or by military bases.

Nothing from Google.
I do very much like the app provided by my credit union for banking services; very efficient, very fast, and always with me.

Your number is quite high here as cell phones do not work in the Rocky Mountains

Must be the desert in Utah just past Richfield going east, there is a stretch where the is no service.
Never understood why someone doesn’t put up cell towers.

I can see a cell tower and not have any service at all. I can't get the nearest city either. Onstar does not work reliably here either.

Population centers have cell phone service and because of the concentration of folks, the percentage of ownership is very high.

Not everyone lives in Dehue WV.

The presence of a handful of people on this thread who live on the opposite of the mountain does not counter the 10s of millions who own the phones.

Had two land lines, one for fax. Dropped the house phone line. Now fax seems to be fading away.

I love the concept of Trapster, but it’s a long way from actually being useful.

I do love the Spotify app.

I hated giving up my rotary dial. It had such a good speaker and was so easy to hear people, unless they were on a cell phone.

I live in southwest Florida. I have Verizon. In North Port, Fl. I cannot get a signal. Someone I work with in that area had to get ATT to get coverage. I can drive out Hwy. 64, 10 miles from I75 I drop signal, get it for 5miles around Zolof Springs, drop it, get it for 10 miles around Wachula, drop it until about 10 miles outside of Sebring. Look at a map. No mountains. Tell me that is good coverage. If I am up the person’s butt,I can just tap them on the shoulder. Like 10s of millions others.

Indeed, my first phone call at about age 4-5 in 1951, consisted of picking up the phone and telling the operator who I wanted to call. She connected the call.

We brought a phone book for Logan WV with us when we moved to Cal in 59. The numbers were all 4 digits. 3,500 people in the county at that time, some with no phone some with party lines (cheaper rate).

My bag phone worked until they went digital and killed the signal. HD TV does not work here either.

Another app that I've re-started using again recently -- and which appears to be very popular in my area -- is Waze (also owned now by Google).

It incorporates a lot of the Trapster features (plus those of GasBuddy) and is a crowd-sourced traffic app. At any given time on the road it claims to have a couple doxzen other users in my immediate area, reporting on traffic conditions in realtime.

I talked to a guy 35 miles west of Richfield on a CB once. It worked better than a cell phone.

not saying there is good coverage by all companies everywhere, but the millions in the big cities make the percentage of ownership very high compared to the smaller numbers in rural area, who don’t have coverage.

My sister lives in Max Meadows VA, 1 miles from the interstate. Good coverage at her house. I have found that service is fairly consistent near the interstates in the rural areas.

BTW, Don’t take my rant personally. I consider you a fellow FReeper. My anger is just against the marketing of a device that is supposed to make phone calls. I don’t care how nice the seats in a car are, or if it has sat nav, if it keeps dying on me while I am driving.

I get that, especially if you gave an old one with tubes.
I think everyone should have a shortwave tube radio for emergencies as well
