Mobile Phones Dirt Cheap (just ignore the foul odor)

Is there a strange odor wafting out of your mobile phone's mouthpiece?

Cross your fingers and hope your not using one of the phones smuggled through the sewer pipes from Hong Kong to China!

It reminds me of a song...

"Over the river and through the "sewer" to Grandmother's house we go..."
Really, you gotta wonder where they are shipping those phones. Hopefully it's not to the UK where:

51% of 10 years olds and 91% of the 12 year olds have mobile phones

11-17 year olds text more than they talk

11-17 year olds send or receive 9.6 texts a day

78% of 11-17 year olds say that having a mobile phone gives them a better social life

42% of 15-17 year olds girls say they'd feel unwanted if the day went by without their mobile phone ringing

1 in 3 children say they talk regularly and/or send texts to people they do not want their parents to know about

Almost half of 11-14 year olds would not allow their parents to look through their text messages

A quarter of 11-17 year olds have received a text inviting them on a date

Wow. Makes me wonder how I ever made it through High School without a mobile phone? Text messaging? Voice-mail?

Oh yeah, that was back in the "old days" when we had to use a land line without call waiting, call forwarding, caller id, call waiting id, and call notes.

Mobile phones - can't live with 'em, can't live without 'em.
