I mostly only use mine for emergencies. It's also useful for text notifications like the one I received a couple of days ago to tell me my new glasses were ready for collection. But I hate it when I'm home and people don't try the landline first.
It's relatively easy to make the choice not to use your own phone. It's much more of a problem when your interaction with other people is constantly being disrupted by their ringing phones.
Far too many people do let their phones rule their lives.
I do agree that they're very useful in emergencies. I just feel that they are overused and sometimes get in the way of normal day-to-day living.
