Can you live without your cell phone for a day?
Almost everyone seems to be using their cellphones constantly. Can you do without yours for a day?
I believe I can, I don't use it for chatting but I use it for texting, emergency, and use it as a timer at work. It is like the television, I don't watch T.V. now, I only watch T.V. if there is a program that interest me.
Yes! Great question. Last year my son had a lot of medical issues. The phone rang nonstop. It was disappointing that all I had time to do was talk on the phone.
Now I leave my phone off most days and answer it when I get to it. My friends have learned that I take my work very seriously and that means not allowing phone calls to interrupt me unless I am on a break. It used to boggle my mind how many random phone calls I would receive about nothing and it would eat up the time I had to focus on my work. While I do like to make time for my friends, I like to do so up close and in person. I like to invite them for a coffee or lunch. It's much more personal that way and I feel I can contribute more to their life than by chatting from afar on the other end of the dial tone.
I'll be honest, no I can't. I use it for my night job to navigate to different homes. I use it to communicate with my children when I am not home. I use it to keep in contact with family that are three hours away. I use it for entertainment. I use it for far too many things to give it up even for a day. I have no desire to be without it.
I have to constantly keep my phone on me for work. I do get about 4 days a month where I dont need to be on stand by however. I usually turn off my phone the entire day. Does anyone else here have to be on call for work? If so , do you do what i do? I dont want to even acknowledge mine when I dont have to.
Yes. I forgot my cell at my parent's house when we had dinner. Two days without my phone, and I survived! So can teenagers... We can always live without electronics.
I absolutely could live without my cell phone for a day or a week. I rarely use it. Have no texting or internet service on it. I use it for emergencies or to check in at home if I am running late.
I might go into withdrawal as our Internet has been going down lately. I spend time texting, finding answers to questions, visiting sites hubpages, Pinterest twitter. I might survive if I could get involved in projects and visit friends and spend time with family. Even my dear husband. And smell the roses.
