    I resisted getting a cell phone until I absolutely needed one for travel. If we held an experiment for 1 week ,how many could forgo their cellphones? roll

    I lost my cellphone for about 10 hours the other day. I freaked out. And not just because I forgot to put a passcode on it. But because, I, like an overwhelming majority of Americans, have developed quite an attachment to my digital appendage.
    A recent survey by the Pew Internet & American Life Project shows cellphones are an essential part of 83 percent of Americans' lives, used to retrieve information immediately, to relieve boredom or to help in emergencies.
