If you lost your job tomorrow would you give up your cell phone?

In this crumbling economy if you lost your job tomorrow would you give up your cell phone I thought about this question and for me the answer if yes. I never have been much of a talker on the phone, must come from years of having to do that at my job. Cell phones are everywhere you look, is it really necessary to talk when your in line, or talk on the phone while your shopping. I think what really bugs me more is when a person talks and drives there car. Enough rambling about what I don't like about a cell phone, back to the original question. Would you give up your cell phone if you lost your job; or is it your only form of communication?

No because I need my cell phone to get another job and keep me connected with people. Without other people to help me through I would definitely go into a depression. Plus, cell phones now are not really a luxury, a cheap cell phone is needed very much at least for emergency's sake.

I don't disagree that we need a phone to stay connected and I agree we need cell phones for emergencies. I was just wondering if we need to have a cell phone for casual conversations.

For casual conversation, true, I would. Living is more important than a social life for me.

No I wouldn't as it is much more handier to have around. If you need to cut back, then by all means if it is possible, change your calling plan or go for a pre paid option so it is easier to budget for. Remember that if you are applying for work, or registered at different Work Agencies for temporary work, you need to be ready to take that call, it might just be an offer for work.

Very true, these days it's hard to get a job and your right you need to stay connected anyway possible.

I think I'd probably have a hard time with that one, simply because I'm never home and always running kids to activities. I might lower my plan (minutes) and then just get rid of the land line, even though I need it for the computer at home. It might even be a good thing!

My cell phone could go, but I couldn't give up my computer.
