Cell phones versus home phones

December 11, 2002

Lee County- Southwest Georgia Living Magazine Sales Director, Robin Strickland, uses her cell phone regularly and says its becoming her primary phone.

While a lot of people use cell phones for local calls, with the holidays here, now, they're making long distance calls, and they don't mind switching to their cell phones.

Kristy Fincher and her husband, Doug, own Cellular Express, an authorized Cingular Wireless agency, and they say their customers are always looking for ways to save money.

Fincher says while telecommunications giants, like Bell South, will always be around, cellular phone companies may gain an edge if more customers make cell phones their primary phones.

Kristy Fincher says one of the most popular plans at Cellular Express offers 1000 anytime minutes with no long distance charges, which costs about forty dollars.
