How come you can't hear yourself speaking on a cell phone?

Why can't you hear yourself on a cell phone? Land lines, even old analog ones, feed the sound of your own voice back to you, so you can more easily gauge how loudly you are talking. Why don't cell phones do that?

I am interested in this because of course we have all had to listen to people shout into their portable phones, and it seems like the lack of feedback is a major issue. What gives?
