There has been a great push to have cellphones/smartphones do more and more.  A recent invention is a cellphone credit card reader that gives any cellphone the ability to be used to do credit card transactions.  Is this something that will catch on?  Does it seem like a good idea?  Why or why not? (You must write 5 sentences or you will get ZERO CREDIT)

      I think debit cards would work on this, too. Usually, debit cards work on just about everything credit cards do. 🙂

    i think that the smart phone ideas are dumb. because what the point in spending a million dollars on a phone when you can just go to an ATM ? when you buy these smart phone it makes your kids want a new phone. then when you get them the phone they dont know how to use it . i dont think that it will catch on ..

    I do think that the ability to do credit card transactions will catch on because some people don’t have time to go to the bank and its faster and easy. Yes i do think its a good idea because some people are very busy people and this makes it easier are them.

    i think its a good idea instead of going to the bank and atms and all that stuff. i think it will catch on as soon as more people get to know about it. it wouldn’t be nothing that i would care about having though. and i think somebody’s going to create something else with that probly.

    WOW! I think it’s a great idea. So many people use credit cards because they’re much more convenient than carrying around a bunch of bills and loose change, and just about everybody has a cell phone. So, yes, I’m guessing it will catch on. I know when I get a credit card I’m going to buy one! 🙂

    i think that it will catch on for people who have credit cards. i don’t think that it is a good idea because it could mess up people credit cards. the credit card thingy could get messed up and be broke and your credit card could get messed up. or it would be easier for people to still your credit card number cuz if your phone gets stolen then people can have the credit card number.

    It will catch on.Because If you can buy stuff of your phone then every one will love. People will never live there phone any ware any more. people over the U.S will be use the credit cards on the phone. It will be much better cause if your on the go you can use a credit cards.

    I think it will catch on, because it much less work because you don’t have to go to the ATM & the bank ! & you can use it any time a day. This can be a good thing or it can be a bad thing, some people can put this to bad use. But i think it’s a good idea in some way but in other’s i think it can be a bad thing but i think it will catch on.

    i think that that well be a good idea because most people like to stay home in not drive up to the back in check how much money they have on there credit card most people want to stay in watch the game or watch a movie in that is a good idea because you could save money by not wasting gas

    It could be because if you are not near a place where a credit card reader is you could just use your phone. But what if someone stole your phone and you left a credit card in your phone, some people would say that is your fault but thats understandable because people make mistakes. I would not get a phone like this because I have no purpose to. I dont think it is a good idea but thats just my opionion!

    i think it will catch on because everybody has credit cards and it will save people alot of money and time so they dont have to go get on a computer or go to a bank. and it will be a plus because it will be easy to be carried around with you and xdo your buisness on the go.

    Yes because people hate wasting gas to go to the bank. It will be easier to scan your credit card on your cell phone. Instead of having to drive to the nearest bank. It said it was affordable. That was good.

    i think that this idea will not catch on because this is a bad idea. because if you loose your phone someone can have all your money and they can spend it. and because if you was to use your phone and you was in the began of use your card and your phone go dead it could cancle your whole bank account. i also think it would be a good idea because if you dont like keeping cash in your at a game you could use your phone aand card to buy something.

    I do not think it is a good idea because it could really affect the way we use
    cell phones today. What I mean by that is cell phones are meant for calling and texting. Now its all online, youtube, and all that stuff. that is why I think
    it is bad.

    i think it could possibly be a good idea but also i will have some pros and cons because if this is to catch on then this may cause something bad like a stranger could find your pen number and type it in and there you go your money is gone but if you have that you can also save time and get things done alot quicker but other wise i think it would be a bad idea

    i think it will catch on. this will make it easier for people with small businesses to let people use their credit cards. but this can also be a bad thing. some people might try to steal ur pin number. along with all of ur money.

    I don’t see what’s wrong with it. I feel that as technology improves it just makes life a little easier. I feel higher technology calls for higher education. I think it would be a catch because a lot of people are into technology. The creators would most likely make a high profit from this creation. That’s just my opinion.

    No i dont think this is a good idea because what if you lost your phone/ credit card. The person that finds it will waste all the money in the credit card. Then you wont have any money because all your money will be in the phone.

    i mean yes it a cool idea. But it gives more of a chance for identity theft and money theft. you will be able to buy stuff on the go. it might make more people spend all there money. because they don’t have to do much but buy.
