    Are you nomophobic, addicted to your cellphone?

    There were some recent researches conducted that most people are cellphone addicts. However we can't disregard the usefulness of cellphones. Some  of the signs are : always checking it, spend more on accessories, spend sizable cellphone bill, can't function well without it and many more.Cell phones however is very useful in today's society. 

    What are the negative and positive consequences of it? Do you think the advantages of it outweighs the negative consequences of depending so much on it?

    So not one of these people. I have a cellphone for others to be able to contact me.

    If I never had one, I wouldn't be bothered. I might check it 3-4 times a day unless I know someone was going to be contacting me, then maybe more. Usually people know my hours, so they just call me when I get home, or we meet up for lunch.

    Nomophobia is the fear of losing your cell phone. I think everyone fears losing such an expensive piece of equipment and loss of a security net when in trouble.

    No, but I know so many people who are! I can barely stand to be around one of my best friends when she has her cell, she is always texting 4-7 people at once and can't even pay attention to what's going on around her!
