I think this is a must for most of the people, especially those who want a peaceful sleep. But for me , I hardly switch off my hand phone. Instead, my hand phone is ON 24 hours :) Then how could I sleep through the whole night peacefully? Actually what I do is let my hand phone ON till middle of the night. Then I shall turn it to silent mode... This is what I normally do. When I wake up the next day, be it early or late, my hand phone will not wake me up at all. Maybe you will ask me why not just turn it to silent mode before I go to bed...... I just worry some one will look for me says like emergency call from family and friends. Moreover sometimes my hubs is coming back late at night. I ON my hand phone just in case he wants to call me and make sure he can reach me even though I am sleeping. So what would you do with your hand phones before you go to bed?

Yes, just keep it silent will be 1 of the best choice to keep us sleep peacefully. Anyhow we got the missed call we can see what time they called us and we could call them back.

Hi Celine, True enough, getting the cell phone turn into silent mode if better than turn it off. Any emergency call at midnight we still can get to receive it. For me, when I wake up in the mid night, I will normally take a peek on my cell phone just to see if there is any missed call or message. Hope to see you in my other discussion. Happy mylotting.

Yeah, agree with you, keep the cell phone ON for 24 hours is the best. For us, we don't use the land line home phone at all. If we off the phone, then no one can get to reach us happen any emergency around. If you have a house phone which is on, then you might consider to off your cell phone when you are sleeping

I never switch off my mobile at all even it is my bedtime; not even turn it to silent mode. The phone is my alarm clock and I on it all day long for the convenient of family and others to get me at anytime or any emergency at night. The frequencies from the mobile actually effect to our sleeping and brain, it was told not to put near to our bed when we are sleeping. I didn't put near to me, I place it on my dressing table.

Sometimes I do to save the batterys like if im away or if I dont need to use the alarm. But most of the time I leave it on all night and through out the day just incase if someone calls me or if there is an emergency. Since you never know when there will be one.

For alarm, I get to know from my hubs that even you turn off your mobile phone, the alarm still works provided that you have set the alarm time. Yeah, we will never know when and who will be there for an emergency... So better turn it on ALL DAY.

Hi vingyan06, I never switch off my hand phones even if I went to bed. I used my hand phone as an alarm clock. I also afraid that I will miss some important call that may come. Happy mylotting and have a nice day.
