    Eh, cellular phone? As in a telephone working on an energy cell (battery).

    I have one, but it just about belongs in a museum and on top of that I never use it. Can I join your society? :grin:

    To make this understandable for you, SturmTiger, just assume that any picture you'd like to post isn't small enough. :wink:

    A 'celly' is a short word for a cellphone. Nothing else, as far as I know?

    I must say that I've never heard 'celly' before. Cellphone, yes, but not 'celly'. Webster hasn't heard about it either.

    'Celli' is plural of 'Cello', though ;)

    Yeah I heard that only recently. I tend to use Britisch English rather than American English, so I think I won't be mentioning Celly any more. It will be mobile from now on.. :lol:

    I am proud to say that I have lived on this planet for over 41 years, and in that time I have never, not even once, thought; "I wish I had a mobile phone right now because I could just......"

    Please may I join your club?

    Well yeah that;s often the thing with developments like these. Nobody missed them until they came up, and now that people use them they think they can't live without. So in a way you're saving yourself from that. And you're saving a lot of money, too!
    But nevertheless, mobiles my turn in handy some times. :wink:
