If there were no mobile phones one day, what will happen to your life?

When mobile phone has become one of the essential necessities in people's life, it offers us a sense of security and enables us to send or receive message at any time. It has been the primary tool for communication and sometimes overpasses the face-to-face communication. People make a call or send messages almost everywhere, in the subway, dining-hall or on the street. Mobile phone has become our bridge in life. If there were no mobile phones one day, what will happen to your life?

your right, sometimes i also feel that mobile is like a disturbance to my part like message and calls while your busy doing something and you need to check them. others will ask why i didnt reply that soon specially my bf, if he called me and i failed to answer it he will think im with someone else thats why i didnt answer it and etc. sometimes even if im on a vacation a lot of clients and officemate call me to ask for information if they can just look for it in my table.

It would still continue as normal so for me the most important are having the basic needs food, shelter, water etc, than anything else. Mobile phone is a material things and they become a need when they become popular as brought by technology and in the past people survive without having it and so if they are able to survive it and so I could do so. As the most important things for me is my family and my loved ones seeing them both happy and not sick, I could rest well with a calmn thoughts.

I guess I'd be okay. I survived almost twenty years before without a mobile phone, so I can go back to that kind of life, I guess.

Goodness that would be awful but I guess I would have find a way to live with it but that would most likely mean that city's and towns would have to put up more pay phones agen haven't you noticed that there's less and less pay phones around today. Anyway my cellphone has become really important because if I get stuck somewhere I can call a cab, or if I have a power outage at my place I can call the power company your probably thinking dont you have a home phone for that. yes I do but all my home phones are connected and wired through my computer so that means if theres a power outage all my home phones go out, so I need to have my cellphone or else I would be up a creek without it.

in the past, we've survived without mobile phones, though we've developed dependency to our mobile phones, absence of it may increase more human interaction. but because we get used to it, it will surely be difficult to adjust without our phones.

hello there, i think nothing will change and my life will go on. as of now, mobile phone is not a necessity in my life since i can survive without it. i don't need it much for my daily life & activity. and besides i have live many years without it and so i guess i can still live more years without it!

Phone is a good alarm product, but keep a distance with the phone when you sleeping.

they can actually use landline phone like what we used to have before. but for me internet nor computer will create a big impact once theres no computer at all anymore as a lot of company including individual using it.

Hi, Lixq. Welcome to mylot. I'm a newbe here too. Haha. That's absolutely true. Cell phones do occupy a dominant position during the tools for communication. I don't know and can't imagine what will happen to my life if I keep away from my cell phone. I will feel upset if I someday forget to take along my cell phone or it runs out of battery. Without cell phone, it seems like losing contact with outside. It offers a sense of security, that's right. Happy mylotting! Candy.

its alright if theres no mobile as long as theres still internet so i can still browse site and chat my friends online. i can use phone anyway to call someone else just like what we have before. so mobile will not affect me that much but once internet will gone thats a big impact for me.

If there had never been any mobile phones then I would be fine, after all you dont miss what you never had, however I use my mobile as an alarm for the morning, so I would have problems straight away, I would probably be sacked cos I wouldnt get up in the morning!

Man I would just faint! I mean my cellphone is like my personal secretary. It reminds me of things to do, saves me the cost of needing a pen and paper, stores all my contacts and also gives me leisure. Living without my cellphone would be doomsday!

If there are no mobile phones then we can imagine going back to the time when it is not yet used. In that time life and businesses still goes on but just limited to whatever it is on that time. We have experienced having mobile phones so we can just imagine how hard it is having none. Hope that mobile phone companies continue to kept their equipment in good condition so services will be up all the time.

As far as I am concerned, I think if there is no phone with me a day, I think I may get mad. For me, I usually use the phone so frequent. I call my friend use the phone. I go to the supper need to use the phone to call the meal. There are a lot ways need for me to use it. So I can be not short of it.

Life definitely will be inconvenient without a mobile phone. But remember that all of us have once lived and did fine before mobile phones were invented. We're just so used to it now that we think we can't live without it. We actually can, maybe just not in the fast-paced way we want to - which might be a good thing for some people.
