Today's technology makes it a necessity. If you do own one, how dependent are you on it?

My husband and I both do NOT! First, we can't afford it... And second, we have a landline... We are happy with that. If I really need to use a phone and I am not at home, I could try the telegraph or the pony expresss, or even the payphone.. LOL I get the funniest looks when I ask for the pay phone... :) hehehe

I used to NOT own a cellphone but my wife insisted I use one. In fact she gave me one. She said this way we could easily communicate wherever we are. I do admit that this is true but I still find it a burden to open it to check if I had any messages. I lose my momentum this way when I am at work.

Yes, mine is Nokia 6610i. Without cellphones it is difficult to keep in touch with my friends and family.

Its totally different when you use it for business purposes. It is an essential tool for business.

Yes, I own one and have for years... but, since I am self-employed and work from home, I'm not dependent on it at all. I do value it for the times I'm on the road, driving alone, or when I'm out anywhere, so that my children are always able to contact me and vice versa.

I just have a trac phone, and rarely ever use it. I keep it with me for "just in case" instances. And also I keep it near me when I am online since I have dial up connection, this way if there is an urgency and someone needs to get a hold of me they have a means.

A practical use for a cellphone. My wife asked me to carry one so she can get in touch with me anytime when I am out of the office.

Yes I own a mobile, it's a Nokia 6630, I love Nokias, although I only use it to send and receive texts, I do not like talking on them and prefer to use the landline. I'm not very dependent on it at all, I can leave the house without it if I'm not driving. I always have it on my if I am driving just in case I break down.

Very practical reason. In my case, the wifey always insist that I bring it with me so we'll have constant communication. I guess I really don't mind this...Thanks.

I don't make a lot of calls on the cellphone, but I know I'd be very lost without one! I know it because I have encountered a really bad experience getting stranded without a cellphone. Currently, I have 2 active mobile phone lines.

A good nothing really bad happened to you. Its always safer to have a back up cellphone. Just in case...

Yes I do own one, but I have never used it. It's been about a year now I reckon. I keep minutes on it, but I just haven't had a need for it. I reckon it's not a necessity for me.

The key is not to be so dependent on your phone; in case you forget it. Now with the new phone networks; nearly everyone has a phone (or two!)

USe your cellphone and not your cellphone to use you. Being a slave to technology, you mean and I agree. There should be limitations too.
