How important to you is your cell phone or smart phone and do you think you could live without it?
Not important at all, My wife has a mobile as she now does all the driving, and it may be needed in an emergency. It is used once every six months to fulfil the contract requirements, otherwise, neither of us ever use it. We have been living for thousands of years without mobiles, or any other form of telephones,so yes, you, me, old uncle Tom Cobley, and all, can live without telephones.
for my case, my smart mobile companion is quite important. am actually quite thankful to modern smartphones as it eliminate the hassles of bringing numerous gadgets and other needed items
the smartphone and headset, in a way, are all the tools i need to accomplish simple productive and entertainment tasks - taking down notes, using the audio recorder, video and audio player, ebook reader, GPS, compass, alarm clock, organizer, instead of remembering little details like price tag - will simply use the camera to take a quick snap, etc...
My smartphone is VERY important to me and my constant companion, however, I could of course survive without it, however survival would be a less informed and less fun existance
well, last year I had my HTC sensation and it went out of business after a fall onto the ground. I spent 5 months without a proper smartphone and it was difficult, but I survived. It is a luxury in many sense, but a necessity for my business. But again, I managed.
I grew up before cell phones were around so it wouldn't be a big deal to go without one for me. In fact, the thought of not being reachable 24/7 sounds kind of nice sometimes. The current generation, however, likely would disagree as they have grown up with them and they are almost like an extra appendage for some. It will be interesting to see how wired up with technology we all are in 10-20 years from now.
My cell phone is of very little importance. I could easily toss it and forget it if my wife would let me.
Well, I never thought I would be an individual who found a smart phone to be important. However, in this day of technology and all the mobile apps that are available I find it very important to have my smart phone. I use it for keeping up with posting for class, navigation, weather temps, and travel alerts. I could live without it I remember the days when I did not even think of owning a cell phone.
Good question Eric Calderwood! I find myself asking the very same question when I see a couple having dinner or walking together and their cell phone goes off and they actually take the call!
Like most people, I enjoy the convenience of the technology we have today. It's incredible where we have gone with cellular power! I could live without one, but I don't want to. I do have a limit to where my cell phone is allowed to interrupt me.
Visiting with family or friends, no phone (it waits in the car). Breakfast, lunch or dinner with anyone, no phone. Anytime I'm talking with someone, no phone.
Recently I invited a young friend for a short shopping trip. When we arrived at the store he commented, "Don't forget your phone". When I replied, "No, I leave it in the car." he was astonished. I gave him my reasoning, "I am with who I want to be with. I want to focus on our shopping trip and you, not on who may be calling me. Your what is important to me right now. The phone can wait in the car for us. Text messages and phone calls will be there when we get back." He really appreciated what I told him and tossed his phone back into the car too stating, "They'll be waiting when we get back". I responded, " Exactly".
Cell phones are great, but you are more important.
I can definately live without my cell phone. Plus, there is no smart phone in my purse. That's only for my husband. He's spoiled.
It's very important,but if I had to live without it I probably could for a short while. There is internet and that's a major way of communicating as well. Also, I enjoy writing letter so if it came down to it, the mail system still works. lol

Can you go without your cell phone/smart phone for any length of time?A study was done. The study showed that most people feel even a little anxiety if they do not have their cell/smart phone with them and some feel a great amount of stress, anger and/or anxiety. How about you?

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...

What age should children be allowed to have a cell phone?Do you feel there is a specific age, is it based on their level of maturity or should the wait until they can pay for it themselves?
