My husband has a cell phone.
What with buying a house over an hour away, there is just no way we can keep on without him having one. The conditions were: (1) cheapest phone possible (free is best) and (2) only I have the number. (He really hates cell phones.)
Now, his free phone (Motorola) is better than mine (Samsung), which was free about a year and a half ago*. He's having fun creating ringtones, where I can't even download ones I'd have to pay for. (I've hated this phone since it arrived. Sucky design, limited in so many ways.)
*We're similar in our hatred of expensive cell phones. Me, because I tend to drop them (or have a cat pee on them (happened)); him, because he hates cell phones (why pay extra?).
