I have verizon service and use a verizon/samsung cell phone. It has the slide out for text messaging.
I don't use any of the extra services such as internet. I do have text messaging because my kids seem to
send more text messages than calling me! I keep telling them, don't text me...they text anyway. :lol:

I think probably the best about texting is, maybe they won't get cancer from the thing.

Yeah another good point. It does reduce the chances of getting cancer through radioactive transmission or whatever they call it, every time you decide to put a phone near your ears. But then the next thing you know, they will be saying that texting causes arthritis through the same means. :(

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. Highly possible over time, a person could get carpal tunnel syndrome in their fingers or wrists.

I get carpal tunnel syndrome some times but when I do get it, I move to a different position....I get it in my wrists, from mouse or other hand from not resting my left arm on chair more often. Tend to leave my left hand in upward position at keyboard....then I catch myself and stop.

I still keep an old SE300i ( I only need the CP for texting, nothing more ) -- still love this old unit, takes several falls and tumbles off my pocket, and still transmits well than the Nokia's I used to own ;)

I plan to get off these cell plans in the not so distant future.

You may disagree and if you are young, best take what I am telling you to heart.

All those stores and places of business out there will nickel dime you into the poor house.
At the very least, they are taking away monies that you could be placing to better use and some day, you'll wish you had.

It's getting impossible to keep up with every new electronic they come out with because they are constantly coming out with them.

Last year (2010) at about Christmas time, I purchased a little gameboy ds system. Ya, mainly kids use those but I do some times like to play the 'Zelda' adventure games and I'm a bit addicted to Tetris. It wasn't a month or two after that Christmas they introduced the gameboy ds 3D. I thought, shoulda waited and got the 3D. Which is about the case with everything now. I am wondering what type of tv they will introduce after the sales go down on the 3D TV's.

I don't use my cell phone a lot. I have it for emergencies and because I live in an area in which almost all nearby cities are long distance from here. I plan to perhaps go with one of those minute phones in which you own the phone and pay for the minutes as you need them. My present verizon plan I get 500 minutes per month and I probably don't use 100 minutes of those per month. Some months I dare say I probably don't use more than 30 minutes if that. I pay verizon about $73 per month. I rarely use texting. The reality is, I've been throwing away money for years on cell phone bill.

I'm not sure how families make it today. I really don't. The economy is bad right now too which must make it worse
for them.

I bought my property outright and I buy my vehicles outright. Most anything I want or need, I buy it outright.
I do use credit cards but I also either pay the balance monthly or pay far more than the payment due to reduce
interest.

As times goes by and believe me, it goes by fast, you'll come to wonder why you bought this and that and
why you did not save for the more important things in life. Let's just say that you pay $100 per month for
mobile service.... that is $1,200 per year. Over the course of say ten years that is $12,000. That is $12,000
you could have used towards a down payment on a house or perhaps towards a vehicle or even college.

No matter how much money you have, always think in the terms of the future and what you will need or
want in time. Read 'Rich Dad Poor Dad' if you have not.

Playing the piano up to 5 hours a day. Never got a discomfort. Maybe because I have never heard about that Syndrome. Maybe it is because of the age. Just wondering, because never heard of that !

You can get carpal tunnel syndrome at any age. It's often found in workers that do repetitive tasks.
For example, say you are a factory worker that must pull a heavy lever 6 or 8 hours 5 days per wk.
It's highly probable that worker will get carpal tunnel syndrome in that arm or wrist. Today, it is
almost illegal to keep someone on the same machine in a factory and that is a big reason why.

I'm not so sure if people that play the piano would stand the risk of that, possibly. If you have
the correct posturing of your hands, wrists, fingers, then perhaps not.

Usually carpal tunnel syndrome will go away after some time, when you stop doing whatever you
were doing to cause it. It's not as bad as arthritis I don't suppose but it is a nagging ache that
can be much more than annoying. It can also take months to get rid of it even after you stop
what ever it was you were doing incorrectly.

That is why there is mouse pads with wrist humps, to rest the wrist to prevent carpal tunnel.

No, they really are designed that way for a purpose and it really is to prevent carpal tunnel. It keeps your hand and wrist more aligned and rested.

It is bad.

Any where on your body you are doing a constant prolonged function, can get carpal tunnel in that area.
Usually happens in hands and arms tho.

It's important to rest your arms too and not lean on your elbow on your desk. I had a habit of that once
and got carpal tunnel in my arm and elbow. It will be a constant ache, some times some swelling.

I rest my arms in my lap and on my chair arms as much as possible. I always use a mouse pad with
the big hump on it for my wrist.
