i know some people that use the phone all of the time and its like almost glued to their ears...and i don't really do that, sometimes i will talk during the daytime on the phone for a few minutes and then get off because i usually have something to do during the daytime so i can't really be on the phone all that much during the day but at night i will usually talk for a little while if someone calls because i am not doing anything because i was able to answer the cell phone...so i use the cell phone mostly at night...so i was just wondering about all of you, how much do you use your cell phone...do you use it all of the time, some of the time, or hardly ever? thanks for taking the time to read my discussion and i hope you all have a great day today thanks again!

I used to have my cellphone with me ALL THE TIME. Even when I'm just at home, I still hold my cellphone in my hands or place it beside me, literally beside me. But that was 6 months ago, now I leave my cellphone on my bed, in my bedroom, on top of my laptop table, sometimes I don't even check it until I go to sleep at night. I don't know why, but I've just lost the energy to be holding it al the time and checking for calls and messages. Though, I still take it with me when I go out. I haven't lost that much energy and love to just leave my phone at home. After all, cellphones are for emergency use also right?

I don't use my cell phone too much. I use it a couple times a day usually later at night. I only call people when I feel really bored or lonely. I don't get a lot of calls usually only from my boyfriend, family or a close friend. I think it's important that most people have one though even if they don't use it much for emergencies and such. But your right, I see people use it almost all day. I think it's kind of annoying because people usually don't pay attention to what they're doing because of their phone. They let it become a huge distraction to them and endanger others safety.

I used to talk a lot on my cell phone and run up some really fantastic bills. I have since stopped doing that and I rarely use my cell phone for talking at all. A text message often suffices and they don't respond I just assume that they don't want to answer back and that's their right too.

Usually I use my cellphone to send some short messages but don't often use it to make phone calls because my friends and I like to chat on internet,it is cheaper and more convenient.

I was using it 24*7 but now a days i have reduced it because before and all it was all free messages so i kept on sending messages to my friends but now its all charged so i never touch my cell unless and until i get most important call from my parents or fiance.

I am full dependent on my cell phone. I cant live without a cell phone. I use cell phone not just for the purpose of calling or for sms but also for listening music and also to store contact numbers. When we have to travel for longer distance it's a must, in emergency, where there will no std booths we require cell phones.

I almost never use my cell phone and no one hardly ever calls me. When it goes off, it's quite a shock. I have used it only in an emergency. But, when I go on vacation next month, I plan to use it a lot for that time period. After that, I don't plan to use it all that much. I just don't have a need for it unless it's an emergency. I am so glad that I got a pay as you go plan for it as a regular plan would have been a waste of money.

Very less. I usually do not hang around and speak to people on the Cell phone. I use the messaging feature because it is less time consuming and we can be more specific. I take time to type my messages and that gives the people a clear sense of what I want to tell them rather than telling them one thought in 10 sentences and making them feel confused and all. bourne

I used my cell phone a lot. Because without it i can't contactmy friends,relatives, etc,etc. But recently i have heard about the disease due to the use of cell phones. so i have a fear of using mobile phones.

Well since it's a necessity here I use it almost all the time. I don't use it at night though but I still keep it on so that when someone calls at least I would know. We usually don't use it to call because calls here are expensive, instead we use SMS services.
