    Do you have a smart phone and would you ever go back to using a not-so-smart phone?

    I have an iPhone and wonder if others rely on it as much as I do.  It is not only a phone, but a GPS, computer, mailbox, etc.  Do you think you could switch back to an older phone with none of these features and would it take some time to get used to?

    I am IN LOVE with my Iphone 4S. Siri takes DICTATION. I'm shocked at how much I depend on my phone these days, which is a little scary. But it's become indispensable. One day Siri will know how to cook me breakfast!

    My phone is not that smart. But, it's still sufficient to do calls, browse and texts. So, I have no complains yet.

    No, I just have a plain cell phone that I rarely use.  The smart phone plan costs too much money and I don't think I will use it.

    I am tethered to my smartphone. I would be lost without it.

    I have a smart phone and  a backup regular phone that I use for calls and some texting. I bring my smart phone with me all the time though. Totally dependent on it.

    Not using a smartphone, for me would be very difficult...
