Hey, Well, I could definately go longer without my computer than without my phone... If I am away from the computer, I don't feel weird, but if I don't have my phone on me, I feel really uncomfortable, I don't know why, but I can't stand not having my phone on me... On the other hand, I can happily go without my computer for a couple of weeks, so yeah... Oh, my phone is a HipTop by the way, so it has unlimited web browsing, email, mms (picture messaging), sms, and msn... I think that helps alot, as I can do many of the things I would do on my computer when I'm out and about, and I can freely move around, not stuck to the desk, and alot cheaper to run than a computer too... So yeah, I could definately go longer without my computer, I am hardly bothered at all if I don't go on it for a week, but going one day without my phone is like torture, lol.

Dear friend, I could use many uses of cell phone in my laptop and uses in cell compared to laptop is highly limited. Hence I would opt for my computer. I can call, video chat, or various other ways of communication can be done by computer too as cell phone is mainly for communication.

I think i could live without a cell phone the longest because the computer is key to catching up on day to day events and doing things like mylotting! Plus right now i don't have a cell phone and i am fine.

Hi Ronnyb -- definitely, my cellphone. I would simply join a computer based phone service lol! I am not much on the phone thing, never have been it is simply a modern convenience but one I can live without, my husband is the same way. Now my computer on the other hand is always on, and in constant use for practical and entertainment purposes. I spend hours at the computer and only a few minutes if any on the phone in a day. Thanks for the discussion, happy posting! be happy, be joyful, be safe, be strong! oohcute2340

I can't live without my computer. I need a computer for my job. I can bear without having a cellphone because my friends can just send me an e-mail or just send me a message through yahoo messenger.

Maybe my computer. I used to have a month that I didn't use the computer, that is because at that period my company sent me to take part in a training lessons, there is no computer. I have my cellphone at that time, that is ok. I can communicate with my friends by using my cellphone.

Hey, Personally, I do NOT think that I could live without my computer. It is just that I do so many things on it comparing to my mobile. A mobile is mainly used just for communicating. But a laptop can be used for communication, games, movies, music, Internet, etc... Hope this helps!

Hi friend ronnyb, I would like to live with both of them. If I am forced to make a choice, I would take the computer. As my mobile is an old one and not be able to compete with a PC for browsing the net. Happy mylotting

For me the cell is more important. Otherwise my family will not be able to contact me in case of need. Computer?It is also important.But i can pull on without that also for a few days. There are so many computer centers in the city.They are cheaper too.. Happy mylotting

I prefer computer more than phone. Computer is good practise and lots of learning chance. phone is just waste time on bill and expensive.

I'm not sure I could live without either. I need my cell phone for work. I might go a day or so without using my computer, but that might be it.

I honestly think I will be able to live without my cell phone. The reason I chose cell phone is because I have a house phone that I can use to make calss.

That's a really easy question for me. I'd ditch the cellphone in a heartbeat and keep my computer. I do have a cellphone but it's not connected to a service. I can only use it to make an emergency call but that's fine with me. I can get help if I need it and everything else can wait.

Cell phone. Forever. First off, my husband insisted I have one. We live in the country, and winter is fierce. So it's only for emergencies. I can just as easily stay in town so it's not necessary. I hate being called. Hate talking on the phone too. Too many years where people would call me on the regular phone and talk for HOURS. I can't stand that! I felt so trapped. I don't like feeling trapped. The computer I use for writing, emailing, and other fun stuff. Let's see, fun vs. trap. FUN!

Hello ronnyb! Gee this is a hard question. If you will ask me right now, I can't say I can't live without my computer or my cellphone but I can say my life wouldn't be easier without them. But if you I really have no choice, probably I would choose to have my computer. I can't take to loose my computer. This is where me and my husband talk most of the time. It's also my source of extra income, so probably, I will try to earn more online and buy a cellphone. Besides, computer is better than cellphone. I can use computer to communicate too.
