"I've used Nextels for 10 years (with the "walkie talkie" feature) just for shooting the breeze with other techs when I'm stuck in traffic. But I really hate taking or making cell calls when I'm driving... and will hang up on people if I need to pay more attention to the road."
I've got an earphone on mine. I have a long commute and use the phone while driving only on very rare occasions. I wait until I'm at a red light to plug in the earphone and dial the number.
