Amen. I often question owning a mobile phone because I screen 99% of calls for whatever reason.

I cant speak for everyone but most right leaning/conservative personality types are leery of strangers asking personal questions on any matter. At least in my experience and people I personally know.

I mean, the mobility of the phone doesn't change the fact that most calls will not be picked up. Home phones also get spam calls, you know?

Honestly I prefer mobile phones in this case because the caller ID is better and matched with contacts. Voicemail is a pretty garbage system though. Not that landline message recorders were ever better...

I use my smartphone as a portable library and it has revolutionized waiting, i.e. doctor visits, car rides, etc.
