I heard an interesting converstation today about cellphones and time management. Does having a cellphone affect your plans? Do you plan less or more than when you didn't have a cellphone?

My cell phone has given me more freedom than I had before. When I didn't have a cell phone I had to wait at home if I was expecting an important phone call, now I can just carry my phone in my bag and I am free to go out of the house even when I am expecting an important call. In the past my friends and I had to make plans in a different way. If we had arranged to meet at a certain place or at a certain time we couldn't just change our plans, because we couldn't get in touch with eachother if we had both left our homes. Now we are able to postpone our meeting or change our plans if something happens, and that has been given us more flexibility. It has become a lot easier to change the plans that we have made, and I think it is nice.

The phone really hasn't done much except make me feel less restricted when it comes to things. I never was one to make plans often, but I never liked that restricted feeling when I couldn't make any because I was sitting around for a phone call. Now with a cell phone my phone goes where I go. So without havving fear, I don;t have to worry about that rare, but sometimes all-important phone call.

Having a cell phone doesn't really affect how many plans I have but rather how I go about the plans I have more efficiently. I don't really remember having that much of plans before I turned 18. I got my cell phone when I turned 18 so I really wouldn't know that much about having plans without cell phone. There are times that I resolved some of the issues over the phone & didn't have to go to certain meetings, plans, so I guess cell phone as shorten some of the plans I had.

The cellphone makes and breaks my plans. I have my tasks, emails, texts, internet, and calendar. What more do you need? So I would say yes it affects my plans.
