Funnily enough, I think that this is the first post to be tagged random!

I found out today that some rough sleepers/homeless in London in 2011 have mobile phones. This was a revelation to me!

This is a quote from the book "Stuart A Life Backwards" by Alexander Masters.

"The reason homeless people use mobiles is because they're much cheaper than ordinary phones if you take only incoming calls. In fact, with pay as you go, they cost nothing."

I've just started reading the book, and read this page today, which is why it was so fresh in my mind.

Yvaine - Thank you so much for this information. As I said, I really never knew. Anyway, now I have the contact numbers of two of my homeless friends and this is massively reassuring to me as at least I can call them and check that they are OK and also I know where to find them at any given time. I so wish I had realised this earlier - it just never occurred to me that they would have phones!
