Can you live your life without the use of your mobile or cell phone?
I have considered this question since I only use my cell phone occasionally. I have to say that I could live without it. I have a standard cell phone and only use it to call my house to check in now and then. I have a land line and use that more often.
Yes, I can. And I have already done that for the first 17 years of my life as I got my first mobile phone when I was 18.
i don't have one , so yes i can. i honestly think this need for cell phones is rediculous. i run a sucessful business and i refuse to have one. if you can't get ahold of me, leave a message on my home phone and i'll get back to you.
YES YES YES!!!! I lost my phone and it was so blissful to have people actually have face to face conversations with you. Especially, if they were worried about you, to see the joy on their faces when they realized you were perfectly well and good. Then when going out to get a coffee giving them your undivided attention. This gives them a sense that you are really interested in them, instead of looking down to see who just texted them.
Since I bought my first cell phone, I have always had it on me, except for a few vacations, camping/hiking trips, kayaking trips, etc. But as much as I had enjoyed those trips without a cell phone, I don't quite think I could realistically live without my phone. Traffic isn't as bad on my way home from work when I can talk on the phone with someone. Or the time my car broke down and I needed to call a tow truck (I checked later on, only pay phone was 2 miles away). I mean in this era of the world it's almost necessary for you to have a cell phone or a means of communication with you at all times, and well, not that I ignore people to use my phone, but it's good to have on me just in case of an emergency or need to waste some time driving down the highway.
i would love to but i can't. however, when i get out of city to go fishing i switch off the phone
Don't own one.....don't use one!. I have never sent or received a text message in my life.... true freedom is wonderful.
Most don't realize they are slaves to their mobile devices or cell phones which have resulted in walking and driving "cell phone zombies". A "slave to the grind zombie" ultimately breeds communication attention deficit syndrome to the outside world and sacrifices personal health.
For example, real estate agents would not be efficient in their occupation without their own personal mobile devices, but to work that hard on their devices day and night will slowly microwaves their brains increasing the probability of a brain tumor.

For me, the cons outweigh the pros. I find my time is more "benign" than "malignant" without one.
It may be sad to say but I don't think I could? I have owned a SmartPhone for about a year now and I guess you could call me a slave to it. For a few years prior I owned several older style cell phones that if I forgot to take with me or misplaced was no big deal. But if I walk out of my house now without my phone I might as well be leaving without my pants, I will go back to get it. I am constantly checking it, or playing games, or seeing whats going on with my family/friends on Facebook.
Yes, I can live without a cell phone. But I cannot deny the fact that my life will never be as easy when I have a cell phone with me. We all know that communicating with people is an indispensable thing in our day to day life. And cell phones are very helpful tools to make it a lot easier for us to reach out to others.
i use to think not until my cell phone broke and i lived without one until i coud afford to get a new one it seemed like forever but it was realy just a month
