Intrusions of the 21st century

Gods help me, I caught myself checking details of prepaid cel phones online today. I haven't actually made any commitment to getting one of the Infernal Devices, but I was looking. Because some part of me says "If you're going to go roving into the middle of nowhere like you always do, driving along distant roads by yourself, you might want to have a cel phone for emergencies." I probably would have gotten Onstar if they'd had it on Ford pickups. But they didn't.

I want something I can just throw in a drawer and forget until I'm going somewhere Distant. Or loan to a friend in between. I don't want the thing to be where anyone tries to reach me. I hate phones. I regard looking at this cel phone like booking an appointment for the dentist. Except I haven't made the appointment yet.
