Absolutely not, I love them. I do however dislike (certain) cell phone users who are not socially competent enough to realize when it's time to put the phone down and engage in a proper conversation with the people around them. This is not a problem all the time obviously, but in some situations it is. Besides, hating a cell phone because of what it is is exactly the same thing as hating knives and guns because of stabbings and shootings. I do not hate tools.
