Hey guys, As crazy as it may sound, mobile phones have become a necessity instead of a luxury. Most people depend on their mobiles for almost everything. Yes it has become one of the most helpful one-stop destinations for any human. Calling, texting people across the world, shopping, paying utility bills, tracking someone, checking maps, research, news, weather, you name it and a mobile will have what you need. But the question here is, how would we do it when there were no mobile phones? Its simple - Mobile phones have made us lazy, fatter and dependant. But who can blame us. I don't think I can do without a mobile phone today. What about you?

I would have a hard time without my phone because if I were to break down while out I would have no way to contact anyone and most of the roads here are nothing but fields so it would be difficult to have a way to receive help.

Ah, fair enough. But what would you have done if there were no mobiles? That's the crazy thought. Think about it

@cxndie Thinking about it I would have to walk for miles or across fields to find a house or someplace that would have a phone even perhaps an old phone booth if they still had any.

Yeah I could and also without facebook. At times the best thing to do is turn off all the garbage and just focus on yourself and the big money.

I own one, but I don't use it. I think the world would be a better place w/o them. We use a landline that's all I need, I'm not so important that I have to have a phone stuck to my face all day.

It depends on what you use it for. I use it to help me pay my bills etc. So it does make a huge difference for me. We dont have a landline anymore. But I do miss my landline haha

That's so funny. My grandchild is at the house and she's playing momma and daughter with one of her aunts. My grandchild - “the daughter” - did something bad. Her punishment given by her aunt - “momma” - was to take away her phone! LOL. My mom never punished me like that!

Exactly what I mean. Mobiles have become a necessity nowadays. And we even have one for our kids. It is strange because back in the day we had dolls and toys. Where has all that gone?

@cxndie - I don't know! Instead of dolls, they make their own videos.

this generations mobile phone helps a lot in our daily life, but i can live without it. Way back to year of 60's and 70's where mobile is not invented yet, but people able to survive, trough manual efforts such as writing letters in sending message to love ones or friends,listening news in radios and tv, etc. the advantage of modern gadgets makes life easy as well as lazy

As much as I think I can do without it, I don't think that would be possible as it would be really difficult to get used to doing all the old things again. Yes there was a time when we did not have any luxurious electronic gadgets, but now we do and we have become dependent on them. So I guess we would all chose to be lazy haha

It wouldn't bother me at all. The only thing my cell phone is used for is calls, and I hate talking on the phone.

Oh yes, before it was an option because there were other ways to call. Now with no more payphones and very less landlines at home, mobiles has become a necessity. So yes you both should have one from now on.
