I always leave my phone on unless I am going into a place that asks you to shut it off. Usually if I know before I go in I do not shut it off I just leave it in the car. You never know when you could get an emergency phone call and I dont want to take that chance. At least if its off in the car I can see the missed call when I get back in if the person choses not to leave a voice mail.

I also turn off my cellphone before go to sleep.I leave my cellphone on before,sometimes my colleague call me at midnight.It is really annoying and also make me very angry.You know,I hate others interrupt me while I am sleeping.Another reason is that it will save some power when I turn off it.

I never turn my mobile off. I prefer to have it on all the time. At night i will leave it downstairs so if i do get any late night calls or texts it will not disturb me. The only time i will make an exception is when i am going to the doctors or hospital.

I don't turn mine off unless I have to, like when I am at the movies or somewhere that a ringing phone would be a disturbance. I leave mine on at night because I use mine at a clock and alarm clock at night.

I keep my cell phones on all the time even during the night because who knows what emergency might came up. I have to say I am far away from home and i want to be well informed in case something happens or if my family just wants to talk to me.

Hi! I don't really turn my phone off but I put it in Silent mode (with just a beep) when I go to sleep cos I don't like being woken up with not important messages and calls. LOL.

I usually dont turn off my cell phone. If there is any problem with the cell or if its not working fine then i will have to switch it off cause i dont have any other option. But without a cell phone its hard to cope up with things, friends, commitments. I don't mind attending phone calls even late night but the only thing is i dont get too many calls. Well of my friends know when i sleep, i hate distrubances while sleeping. If still i get a call when i am sleeping then that is for sure some important call and i wont regret attending that.

The only time I turn off my cellphone is if I'm in an improtant meetimg, a program of some sort, th doctor/dentists office of something like that. Those that have that number know better than to call me while i'm sleeping.

I also do that before, turning off before bedtime because of text in the midnight and sometime at 2am at 1am. It makes me irritate when the only thing that they would say is, are you still awake. Now i didn't turn it off because there are emergency calls that are unexpected so my cell will just turn off when low bat or while charging. Its easy to full charge while the cell is off.

I didn't turn off my cellphone, but i put it on silent mode. Just in case, if someone call me or text me on midnight, at least it won't disturb anybody with loud ringing, but i still know someone text me or call me..if wasn't too asleep..:).

I am used to turn off my cell phone before going to bed. By doing this I hope this could make the battery more lasting. Another reason is to avoid any coming call ringing to disturb my sweet dream.

i don't really turn off my cellphone. at night i just lower the volume so i don't get disturb in my sleep. the only time i turn off my cellphone is when i am inside a bank or when riding an airplane. or when i forgot to charge the battery.

I don’t really turn off my mobile phone, most of the time I just leave it on. There are times when my phone rings when I'm sleeping- sometimes i answer it, sometimes i dont. if i dont want to be disturbed i'll most probably put it on silent. i'll definitely off my phone when boarding a plane though hehe!

I usually turn off my cellphone when I need to charge it or insert other sim if necessary. But mostly, my cellphone is always on 24 hours a day. I need to open my cellphone because I have some transaction that need my attentions.

My phone has a setting that turns it off when scheduled to and back on again. I have it set for 11:00 PM to shut off and then come back on at 7:00 AM. It's kind of nice. This way I don't have to forget to turn my phone off or back on and I don't have to kill anyone for calling in between those times.

Only before entering church and the doctor's office. I leave it on most all the time. If I were you, I would just silence the text messaging alerts that way you can still get emergency calls if there were to be one.
