9. Everyone keeps telling me I need a cellphone

Why do I need a cellphone?

I have Lifelife service on my landline phone for $11 a month.

I don't get very many calls.

It appears I will no longer have a car very soon and will have to use a type of transportation where you must provide 24 hrs. notice to be picked up and 24 hrs. notice to be taken home.

I was told I MUST have Verizon service. The cost of it runs into the thousand of dollars unless I give up my $11 a month Lifeline service, then it will be a 3-year contract and about $50 a month on top of it.

Any help at all is appreciated.

I have a laptop. Why is it not good enough?
