And this is at the core of sooooooooo many of your disagreements with others here that I've seen. Your entire perception of the barriers to adoption for EV (and now, apparently, cell phones) as primary use resources is steeped in the ideas that since you know a couple of people for whom that answer isn't suitable, that those people aren't just vanishingly rare edge cases and instead represent common experience, and you can never seem to step out of that. MOST PEOPLE don't live on mountains where there's no cell service, they live in cities and suburbs or within a dozen miles of a freakin' interstate and therefore have cell coverage. MOST PEOPLE don't charge EVs from empty to full. They either charge at home and fill up from their daily travel, or ... MOST PEOPLE that don't have places that they can charge at home ALSO don't live very far from a DCFC. See also "most people live in cities". Cities are also where most of the mult-unit dwellings are. Most cities have some DCFC. Even Des Moines has four. Join the gym near one instead of the the gym near home, or make the grocery store across the parking lot the one you shop at instead and it's suddenly not even time spent waiting, it's time spent doing other things.I didn't see it as a joke nor, like Bill said, was there any indication that it was such.
That said I have several relatives who live in the mountains where cell services is unavailable. According to you these people are fools for continuing to use a landline phone instead of a $1K smart phone. According to many on this site when they need to make a phone call they should jump in the car and go to a location where cell coverage is available, make their call, and then drive home when they're done. Have an incoming call? You'll just have to wait until you go somewhere where there is cell coverage and you can check your voicemail and call them back. Heaven forbid they should use an inexpensive landline that does what they need without all the hassle that comes from using a smart phone.
