Can you last a day without your cellphone?

9 posts in this topic

I have asked this question to 12 people - can you last a day without your cellphone? All the 12 answered in the negative to mean that the cellphone is already an adjunct of their physical being. And what happens when suddenly the phone network stopped working? I guess the world will be lost and people will all be confused as to what's happening. It seems that almost everyone is dependent on the cellphone particularly when the smart phone emerged that provides us with internet function.

So my question is this - how long can you last without your phone?

I can easily live without my cell phone. I use it for emergency calls and some forum posting but it's not part of me, meaning it's not my whole life. I was phoneless for about 6 months and I did ok. The only downside was not being able to communicate with family who are far.

Yes, I could live without a cell phone with easily. I mean, I like to stay connected with the rest of the world, stay updated with the news in real time and etc... But this is not essential in my life (people are and always will be).

Can I live without my cellphone for a day, yes but a computer I'm not so sure xD. I use my computer for a lot of things, it's my job and my hobby too. Phones I only really use for checking up on Facebook and messengers, I don't have a need to be on it everyday really.

I can last without a cellphone for months. People can call me on my landline if they need anything or they can send messages to my email or Facebook account which I access through my laptop. I also prefer to use my laptop to access the internet for work-related tasks. A smartphone simply isn't enough for those tasks. I also don't access the internet on the go so really, a smartphone's portability is never an advantage for me.

This will be quite easy for me. I can easily stay a day without my cell phone so long I can be with my computer all the day. Most of the things I need my phone for can be done through my computer once I connect to the internet

My phone is important, But not very important that I won't be able to live without it. It may be useful but I cannot say that I won't last a day with out my phone. A lot of people I know always say they can't live with out their cellphones. Whenever I hear some of them say that, I always tell them to try lasting a day without food and water. I mean theses same people grew in the same place where I grew up. Our place never heard of a console until the Playstation went out. And by the time they heard about it, Playstation 2 was already being released. I mean when it comes to the tech thing, we all grew up without it. Why all of a sudden tell me they can't live without a phone? They've been living without that for years.

I rarely use my cellphone and specially since I hate small screens and its tiny keyboard. It just isn't enjoyable and if I'm out, I'll prefer enjoying being out and if I'm at home, laptop all day.
