I think the most used technological gadget nowadays are no other than cellpnones! Here in my country, it is mostly used in sending text messages.. that is why they say that my country is the 'text capital of the world'! Lol! Why should it not be, when sending text messages is fun and the cheapest way of communicating to someone who's afar. :) No single day passes without me sending a text message using my cellphone. I know most of my countrymen would attest to that 'coz they too does just like that. BUT I was wondering, who among us, in this generation, can survive without having a cellphone??? I tried one day without having or using my cellphone(that's when i rushed to the office and forgotten to put my cellphone inside my bag)and i survived! I bet i can manage without a cellphone for 1 whole week! Hmm.. how about you?

i think life without a cellphone nowadays is a difficult one. like before we used to categorize cellphone as a want because communication in the days of yore is not no dynamic. But nowadays, removing you life from your cellphone is like losing your day because you are immune to it. you use cellphone to contact the person that would help you in your activities and you use your gadget to interact with the people that you surround. I mean, having a cellphone is a must. I cannot live without it.

I have to agree that having a cellphone is more of a necessity nowadays, unlike before, when it was just some sort of a status symbol, a luxury, a want.. No wonder you cant live without it. :) Cellphones are used in business, in work, in our personal lives..

My husband is deployed so my cell phone is always on, and always with me, wherever I go- even in another room of the house! When we're together, I don't even have it with me most of the time!

I can live without it...a matter of fact I have one and barely turn it on ever. I usually just have it with me just in case something should happen if I am driving and ect. It will be on more once my husband deploys because I refuse to miss one of his calls.

Ive only had a cellphone once in my life. I got it while i had a job at a photo studio. I used it fr maybe a month before i gave it up. I just didnt use it enough to justify having it around. I havent touched one in over 6 months. I dont need one, so i dont have one.
