I think he meant one doesn't need to be doing that shit all the time.

That said... people that text or talk on the cell phone (without a handsfree system) while driving, need to be shot.

Sure but it was silly regardless. People don't pay big bucks for a smartphone just to not use it and they have plenty of legit, non "time wasting" functions. An easier solution is to just go with a budget provider. People don't need LTE and the best network, dealing with the odd dropout isn't the end of the world and can halve your bill. Some budget providers give incentive bonuses to bring your own phone as well. My girlfriend was paying $100 a month when we met, I swapped her to a budget provider that gives nearly the same service, has no contracts and is only $41 a month.

I don't even use hands free systems, they are still too distracting in the car. I just toggle my ringer off while driving and never make outgoing calls, it's too dangerous to be messing around with it in there.
