    How attached are you to your cell phone?

    Is is practically attached to your head, or do you rarely even use it? What is your relationship with your cellphone  like?

    People trying to reach me seem more attached to it than I am. With cell phones all around us today, I find myself becoming annoyed by it at times; phones ringing all over the place.

    It's a good tool and that's exactly how I use it. It gets used more to access  information than for phone calls.

      I agree, I love having a mobile answer machine to the questions that randomly come up in conversations throughout the day! Must be how I learn all of my random and useless facts. Thank you for answering.

    Not much.

    I am actually more happy without it. I prefer being inaccessible , except when i'm urgently needed to respond. Life without a cell phone or with minimal use of cell phone is more productive and more stress free. A phone does not have to keep buzzing all the time. Cellphones are one of the greatest inventions of our time but we have got to use them judiciously. If we become one of those people who just can't stand the thought of being away from their cellphones for even a minute, we're not living our lives right. Becoming slaves to anything isn't good and that includes technology.

      Same here. I have gotten to the point where if I am at home I don't even notice it or really know where it is most of the time.  I agree with you 100%, thank you for answering.

    We have a love-hate relationship.

    Sometimes. I always have it in my hand, communicating with others, reading books, researching information,  etc. You know, generally productive.

    Other times, I don't really care. Once, I my phone for 3 weeks in my own home and didn't really blink twice. Then, I needed it or some reason, and I found it in less than half an hour.

    Honestly I dislike having to use it all the time. People love to text and I don't. I let the battery die on purpose. I can't even tell you the amount of times I'm talking to someone and then click, it's dead. Putting it on silent is something else I do to keep me sane. I'd rather talk to people in person and use my computer to go online. I'm also convinced they are affecting our brains in some way.

      Right I would so much rather talk to someone face to face. Who knows what they are doing to us psychologically! Thank you for answering.
