Yes I can because I no longer have one. I gave it up at the end of January. I only had it for two years. I gave it up because it was giving me pain in my head on the side that I would use the phone. I guess it was from the radition from the phone. It didn't start to happen until I had it for about a year. So I felt it was better for me to go back to just a landline phone in my house. I lived fifty years with out a cell phone I can live the rest of my life without.

Of course it is possible...literally,we don't breath from mobile phones. It would be hard without mobile phones,but surely we can live without it. The mobile phone is one of the greatest invention that keeps us connected with our loved ones. It would be very hard to live without it...no communication everywhere. It seems like living in an empty space

For me, I could live without mobile phone as long as there are landline phones available nearby for emergency purposes. I could live because I dont have any business to attend to and there's the computer, I can chat with my family members whenever I want to. Mobile phones are important for those who have a business and sometimes to those who always want to make a little chit chat with friends and family. I'm not always texting or do calls so I can live without it.

Definitely no way. Mobile is part of my daily life. I used it everyday, everwhere, anythime. I used them in my work, my learning. Specially using it as my internet access to my email work and personal. And for connectioning with my friends in social networking.

it is possible. but it's hard even there was a public phone at each 10 meters away. it takes time and you need coins for it.

I do believe it is quite possible to live without a mobile phone. People have lived before the advent of the mobile phones. Though for us who have always been used to the convenience of a mobile phone, losing it or having it malfunction or something would disrupt our daily routines and habits. That's why we would think that we cannot live without it. We just have to adjust when that happens. Though I do hope that it doesnt.LOL

Yes, we can live without mobile phones, I remember the time when I did not had a mobile phone, I was a little more stress-free. I believe mobile phones bring stress.

At present, mobile phone is convenient tool. One day I forget to turn on my mobile phone, my friends had a little impatience for missing their call. When I want to have my own space I would like to turn off my mobile phone for several hours. However I know it is not good without mobile phone.

I think it would be harder to live without your phone, than it would be your computer or tv, cause you can call friends play games, surf the net on most and even watch tv. and its all mobile.

Dear arunmails, I'm sorry to hear that. Yeah, Everyday, I am using my mobile phone. I can't live a day without mobile phone. Thanks.

Yes for some of us it is possible too live without a mobile phone. And for those who think it's not,what did you do before mobiles came out or before you had one? I have a few mobiles and yes most of the time at least one is turned on but I hardly use them much just very occasionally I will use one to text somebody.

Absolutely not. I cannot imagine living my life without my mobile phone. It would be a big problem for me because it is my main source of communication to my family back home. I am dependent with my mobile phone so it would be very difficult for me without it.

It seems that invention is the mother of necessity nowadays. The mobile has become so advanced that most probably in a review of its features , you are likely to see as the last sentence - yes, it can be used as a phone too- . My mobile phone has always stressed me unnecessarily - and its quite a relief when i know i can switch it off for twelve hours. In reality is there anything that urgently urgent? pardon me, i am off the old school. Regards

Easily and just about everyday (In answer to your question, "can you live a day without mobile??). I rarely have my mobile phone on, and I don't even know how to use the features of my phone, besides opening it up, when it's on, which is seldom, and saying "hello". Oh, I do know how to turn it off. AND I survive fine.

your question let me thought of the earthquake happened in my country in sichuan. at that time,when the earthquake happened, most of electricity were interrupted and all of the phones got no signal.we can imagine that how does they worry about their families when they are not together. so it's important for everyone!

I don't think I can live without a mobile phone. Mobile phone's been part of my life and has been playing an important role to make my everyday life easier... I have got my first ever mobile phone when i was in sixth grade.. it was a graduation present from my aunt.. there was no text feature that time so basically i was using it to make phone calls... when i need to go out, i call up my mom to tell her where am i or where am i going... now, mobile phones aren't only used for texting and making phone calls but taking photos and surfing the internet as well...

Yes, it's definitely possible to live without a mobile phone. Nowadays, it may be hard to not have one in hand, but it's still possible. After all, long before the invention of these mobiles, we did actually survived right? During those times, there were no cellphones, computers and internet, we still use the "air-mail" and telegrams and writing letters. I'm glad to be born on that era. Nowadays, mobiles are viewed as a necessity, but I could definitely say we could live without them.

As per me it is indeed possible because in my country people used to lie without phones. But now a days cellphones are becoming the vital part of our lives. Even it is difficult for me to live without a cellphone but sometimes I feel that I did not have the cell phones so that I could love in peace. With cellphone every time there is someone disturbing you.
