A day away from cellphone
July 24, 2008 7:32am CST
How do u feel when one day you forget to take your cellphone? disturbing or feel nothing special? i often left my cell home carelessly. sometimes i feel anxious fearing missing something/someone important. But sometimes, forgetting cellphone makes me feel cool as if get rid of all your troubles, leaving them behind, so that nobody can disturb you, free like a bird.

It's funny to learn the phone network in your country, good, and very interesting cause you have to carry so many cells and distinguish different bells which means you can tell who is calling u by telling the sound. Is it possible to transfer your coming calls to one cellphone?

yes,we carry lots of cellphones...LOL,even my kids.my niece based in switzerland got amazed with the number of phones we carry. she noticed too that the phones are never alike.1 is the latest,2nd the not so new,3rd-the oldest.so my niece says,one is for showing off?one for use?and the other one?the 3rd one is for the unlimited texts and calls-this will be the sun network. oh yes,we could let one cellphone get all the calls.through the call divert.we set one phone,so all calls will go in there...but if your caller finds out,get ready for scoldings,LOL.each network has their own price scheme.like globe to globe calls is cheap than globe to smart.this goes with the other 2 networks too.for prepaid units,one can register for all day unlimited text messaging.this is allowed within the network only,so your phone will not be able to send messages to other networks.funny hah...but simple really...sometimes all 3 phones ring at the same time,LOL,my husbands phones does this all the time.crazzzyyyyyy...

I can get away without one. I can go as long as a week without using my phone. well that is because I am at home mommy, i really have no use for my phone except when my husband is calling or my siblings are messaging me. But with messengers, we just communicate through IMs.

I will feel uncomfortable and feel like I have missed a lot of important calls:) Besides, life seems to be a little boring sometimes to be without a cellphone. As I like to watch movies from my cellphone when I have a little free time. I love China

I rarely get calls from anyone, and i use cell phone in scarce.. even if i am not having cell phone for a month, it does not make me much difference.. In fact, i must claim myself as the safe personality, because excess usage of cell phones paves more chances for brain cancer.. as the the constant attack of electro magnetic radiation..on our brain, and this is a recent result published by a inconclusive study in UK.

I can't stand it that way. I find it so hard not to bring my mobile phone with me. I easily panic. Especially if I'm expecting a call or a message from someone, it's very important to have my cellular phone with me so I can respond faster and decide on some important matters.
