Are you a cell phone slave?

Don't you think cell phones are invading our lives? I'm sure almost everyone has a cell phone. In fact everyone I know has atleast one.

Do we really need cell phones all the time? I personally don't carry my phone unless I need to, like while going to church, except when I'll be going out after the service. Also my phone is mostly on silent mode, so it doesn't bother others if it does happen to ring.

At work I'm not allowed to use the phone so I switch my phone off on shift. I think its only fair to follow the rules that are meant for your own safety. You wouldn't want someone confiscating your phone and having the pleasure of reading your personal messages while it is in their possession, would you?

Would you really leave your phone on during flight (like the woman in 5D) , if you really understood how bad things could get? And if you did notice someone else using their phone when wasn't safe to be used, would you say something or would you ignore it? I would really like to know Are you a slave to your cell phone?

  2. Yes, I know I am a slave to my cell phone. Just a few weeks ago, my cell died. I was out for 3 days, until I came up with enough money and find a new unlocked phone to use.

    I went nuts, I spend a good part of the day, texting and talking on the phone. I do not have a land and my buisnes line forwards to my personal cell when I am away from the office. Which is about 6 hours day. Because of this I have to have a cell on me at all times. I may not answer it all the time but I need to know what is going on and check voice and texts when needed.

  5. Cell phones have become such an indispensable part of business these day, clients always want to talk to you even at odd hours, and you can't ignore them or they'll switch to your competition! Such is life with advanced technology.

  6. I only had my cell phone because I'm a Mom and I need to be available. Didn't use it for much else.

    Now that I have an iPhone things are different, but then again, I don't really consider it a phone per se.
