Yeah, which one will you able to bare... Living for a week without your cellphone or living for 2 weeks withour your computer For me, I'd rather lose my mobile phone for a week 'coz my PC is a source for a lot of things to me; entertainment, online income, e-mails, etc. On the otherhand, a week without my phone may make me feel detached from society and lose touch with people close to me. Not to mention it's value to my work! But still living without my PC may impact me more as it is a source of release from stress for me... How about you? Would you really trade in 2 weeks without a PC for no cellphone for about a week? Thanks for dropping by and happy mylotting to ya'll!!!

Good question! Some time ago, I thought I cannot live without both. But, just by today I got my new mobile package connected after one week of no cellphone communication. Now I know I can live without it for one weeks. I have lived without PC for more than 2 months due to my other responsibilities. So I can live without a PC for two weeks for sure. Comparatively, I can bare two weeks without a PC than a 1 week without a cellphone as communication is more important.

I could go a week without my cell phone. I don't use it that much. But, my computer on the other hand, I use everyday for several hrs a day. I'm probably on here way too much lately. It's been getting rough on the eyes lately for some reason. I think I have a bad habit of sitting too tight and my neck gets tightened up which makes me have tension headaches. I need to lossen up more LOL. Anyway, back to the question, Um, I would go without my cell phone. Happy lotting

I'd pick my pc over my cell anytime because I don't use the cell that much and I can just text to other cells using my pc.

I would give up my computer. I can get all of my email and everything on my cellphone anyway. My phone is Windows based and is fully functional to browse the internet too. It has a full keyboard. Though the laptop is obviously easier, I could live without it for two weeks if I had to. My phone on the other hand lets me keep in contact with my family. They all live out of state. I wouldn't like to be without a phone.

i'd rather lose my pc.. my phone has internet in it.. but why not lose both and start to enjoy simple things in life.. visit a friend instead of texting or sending them e-mail.. a smile is best felt when you get it first hand.. unlike when you get this =)

I'd rather live with out my cell phone for a week, because my computer provides me with so much more. Gaming, music, movies and work. It will be tough without the cell but i can cope, especially cause being free from some annoying calls is a bonus.

I would have to say that I would prefer to keep my cell phone and lose my laptop for two weeks. My husband works in a hospital - surgery is longer than expected, complications arise, etc... so I do not call him at work, just text. I have my phone on me all the time for when he does have a chance to call me. He and I work at different times and often we don't see each other for 5 days or so. As a result, the time we do spend on the phone and together is very important. Umm, I use a computer at work all the time so are you saying, no computer at all (not just your personal computer) or just my personal computer? I know, I am being difficult - sorry, but then I can use my work computer for most of the stuff I use my personal computer for. :)

I would much rather live 2 weeks without my computer because I stay in contact with everyone via my phone. While I do do some article writing and stuff on the computer, but I think when I get a job I think I can live a little without it. I would use it from time to time to earn a little extra for my savings account or a special account for my student loans.

I would rather go without my cell phone for a week. I have other ways of getting in contact with my clients and other people. My computer is my work, and without it, I would basically be without a job- and i'm not going through that again. Also, most my clients know my email and messenger screennames, so them being able to contact me without a phone wouldn't be too much hard work.

PC has more functions compared to cellphones. I could even live without a cellphone. There is so much you can explore with your computer and internet, so many things to be discovered.

I'm at this time without a cellphone but it doesn't bother me as much as it would if it was the internet I was missing. I'm now using the internet to replace my lost phone and should have both back in my hands soon.

I can do without a cell phone for a week but I cannot do without my computer. I would prefer to stay quiet for a week without cell phone ringing and urgent calls. It would be a relaxing week but I cannot do one week without my pc and be cut out with the rest of the world. I do most of the things on the internet, read newspapers, contact friends etc.

You can have my phone for as long as you want it. The damn thing just irritates me because it's usually someone I'm not in the mood to talk to anyway. But don't even think about touching my computer.
