    Default Buy a cell phone now! They shouldn't get any smaller!

    One of my cell phones is a Qualcomm QCP-1900. The thing is big, clunky... but hey! It works.

    I was thinking about replacing it before the new cell phones got too small.

    Right, too small.

    I've used the new, tiny phones and I can't stand them. One minute I'm talking into a phone the size of the palm of my hand and the next minute I'm just talking into my hand. I think the phone slipped down my sleeve!

    I also have a Nokia 6185. THAT'S a perfect size and shape phone. My boss has one too. His provider "upgraded" him to a Nokia 3310. He had that little guy for all of a week before begging for his 6185 back. The damn phone was TOO SMALL! When I borrowed it, I would use two hands to hold it because I thought if I grabbed on to it too tight with one hand, it would break or that I'd wrap my fingers around the phone covering up the microphone!

    Anyhoo, back to the Qualcomm.... Think back to when that thing came out. Man! That was a small phone! Back then, you were lucky to have a phone that didn't slip into a canvas bag when you were done and then you'd sling that bag over your arm. So in comparison; that phone was state of the art!

    They are already working on a cell phone that will fit inside your watch. It'll even give you pictures and you can access the internet from it and download email.

    I also heard that there is a new cell phone being made that will look and work like a hearing aid, just plug it into your ear.

    We have some of the smallest cell phones in the world over here.
    Like you said, makes you wonder if the phone slipped away or something, there so small.

    I'm like you, I like a phone that I can feel and use like a standard phone, not to big but not small either.
