** Ironically, with the advent of cellphones, some Amish communities have reintroduced phone usage (that bit about phones? It [[ExactWords forbids "wires to the outside world"]]). They use car battery rigs to recharge them.

* Also happened in the UK version of ''QueerAsFolk'': Vince had a date and kept nattering on the phone to various people who were bugging him and Cameron grabbed the phone and tossed it into the canal. This is a slightly different angle because it wasn't Vince's work that the phone represented so much as his willingness to let other people use him (so Cameron grabbing the phone was his way of saying "be selfish for once in your life").

* Charlotte does this at the end of ''The {{Rugrats}} Movie'', but she doesn't abandon her job. It's just that her reunification with her lost daughter takes precedence.

* The RayBradbury short story ''The Murderer'' is quite possibly the UrExample: a man gets fed up with his AdvertOverloadedFuture filled with wristwatch phones, portable radios, and [[TalkingApplianceSidekick talking appliances]]. He starts by crushing his wristwatch phone and happily sharing a bowl of ice cream with his car radio.
