I still don’t own a mobile phone…

So yeah I still don’t own a mobile phone.

I have buckets of other devices but I have only ever owned one mobile phone. That phone, a giant ugly handset that couldn’t even fit in a pocket only took a couple calls (one of them being my phone interview for BioWare).

Still every once in a while I find myself out and about and regret not having a phone to make a quick call but it happens rarely. So, am I missing out? And if so what would you recommend I buy?

It should be noted that I hate any kind of commitment, including contracts.
