If you’re American, as you claim, why did you use the term “mobile phone”? Inquiring minds want to know.
America is a country of immigrants. Americans must use all kinds of English.
None of who say “mobile phone.” Unless they’re a recently immigrated Brit.
Edit: Greetings, space alien. This hardly merits a new topic.
This might not be as much of a tell anymore.
I’m American and grew up calling them cell phones but now I skew more toward “mobile” especially in writing, probably conditioned by Outlook and iPhone contact fields.
I call them idiot chiclets since we’ve moved away from idiot boxes.
Mobile phones , but I have to suffer the ignominy of calling them Cell phones now. The bastardisation of English by those Mericans is nearly complete
aside from the old Star Trek-style flip that are still around, I believe the term is smartphone (1 word)
Why can’t we just stick with telegraph.
Yes. What we used to call a phone has now become a “landline.” Phone is now synonymous with smartphone. “Mobile phone” is only used by effete Brits like @shiadoa.
Friday night , after 11pm , is not a great time to try and say that
Oops, you found my bot farm…
Does it need wiping clean ? Or a reset ?
But they are more “Mobile” these days
My bot army is growing. Watch out, @yyy! Your “Green New Deal” is about to get a big surprise.
They also have cells, or something.
