Many people nowadays like to save their friends contact details such as names, address, phone numbers, e-mails, etc in their cell phone memory. But when their cell phone is lost or broken, they often finding difficulty in remembering those details. It happened to my husband once. But now he also writes all those details on his address book, just in case something happened to his cell phone. I wonder if you still write your friends name, address and phone number on an address book???

I just recently did this. I recorded all my friends names and numbers in an address book. I still need to write in all the email information though. It only takes one lost cell phone or crashed computer to lose it all! There are just too many numbers to remember any more!

I do still have an address book and I use it quite often. I constantly find that I am looking up numbers from it as I don't store much in my cell phone. I also write several letters a month and so I use it to have the address's handy too.

Yes true!!i am those person who practically i will save all contact as mails,adress,phone,number to my tech devices!!So in my cellphone as well but also on my agenda here on the computer or even on my personal/working mail too!!So i did not use a physical agenda now for these purposes!!i found it very useful becaus enormally you don't take up an agenda to remmeber all the contacts but your device is enough and so inside there is all...so i think comfortable overall when you come out from home and so you can't take everytime all..!

Yes, I keep an address book and try to write down all the contact information of my friends and business colleagues in my country and abroad. I take along the book whenever I travel and wouldn't miss to write down the addresses.

The most important numbers and addresses I have I keep in a separate place other than my cell phone. I usually keep everything in my computer as well. But the most important numbers and addresses I know by heart. If I lost my phone it wouldn't be that big of a deal because if I call someone I can get everyone's numbers again or start a facebook group to get my friend's numbers like my brother did when he lost his phone lol.

Ye just in case that such incident whould happen to me , I try to memorize contact infos of important people, as least there phone numbers. Besides I use agenda to schedule my daily routines and appointments so it's convenient to write down some most-used contacts in the agenda.

i had this lesson. in the office i have two functions and one is as secretary of the president of the company. i was about two to three days working with him already and i am used to placing everything in the computer, email addresses home and office addresses, phone numbers, and the rest of important items thats i will need just when the case arises. but always, i make it a point to have a back up like an address book which i can use during power failures or another popular thing now, the memory stick or usb which i can carry anywhere. one time, the boss was going to present something to the board. and then suddenly he could not make laptop work and all that was to be presented was in that computer. so the tension began and he was very upset. actually it was he who prepared everything. he only asked me to print hard copies. but i just had this urge to copy it in my usb but i didnt tell him. when i saw that he didnt have any other option but to talk without any presentation materials because he had to use another laptop, i whispered to him that "sir, am sorry for not telling you but i made a copy of your report in the usb". i didnt see any expression from his face. i thought to myself, "this is my third and last day in the office". at last the presentation finished and there was a short break. i was taking notes then and he called me to one corner. i said to myself, "this is it. i'm going to be fired". he asked me, why did you copy without my permission? i looked him in the eye and said "intuition, sir". he asked if i knew it was going to happen, and i said no. he took my hand and shaked it and said "thank you. you saved my day!" and he was already smiling. so i guess, it is a must that one always have a back up like usb or an address book. it is very important. thank u for this topic ms. natalie

Yes I do. As much as I love emails and being in constant touch with people; snail mail is still a thrill for me. It's easy to hit forward and send loving thoughts to someone on the computer. But a personal letter is sooo thrilling.. it makes going to the mailbox a joy. And I'm sure that if I feel like that other people do as well. So yeah, I keep all my addresses in a little book in my purse and I try to get stuff out on a regular basis to my loved ones - just a little something to brighten their day.

No I don't. I never really used an address book anyways. I put the numbers in my phone but then I save them to my sim card. I made the mistake before of just saving them to the phone and then when the phone broke down I lost all my contacts. Its also better for the environment. Wastes less paper.

This is good. I don't keep address book anymore, but occasionally I would scribble on paper for some important numbers and later to be stored on my PDA. I think in this age, sometimes holding an address book is handy because one might lose their cellphones and stuff like that.

Hi again! When my computer crashed several months ago, I realized I had no idea of a lot of people's addresses or phone numbers without the computer. I bought an address book the next day and I'm gradually getting everyone into it, just in case the thing goes haywire again.

There are tons of numbers that I dont keep in anything other than my cell phone. Those numbers are either easily replaced or not very important! I do keep all of my addresses and phone numbers of important people in an address book. It is so much easier than a cell phone sometimes. I dont ever have to worry about whether or not it is charged to get the information. I also lost a phone once. Getting all of the numbers again was a bit of a pain. So I guess that I am in the same boat as your husband in that respect!

I've stopped writing in one for the longest time. I do keep a file in my computer, I'm not sure if that'll count but I am seriously considering getting an Address Book. I just have to find the perfect one.
