  • I've never used a cell phone. So I don't miss it. I could live without my landline also. I very rarely use it for outgoing calls - like probably not more than five or so calls per year. And most incoming calls are sales calls.

    I don't have a TV either.

    I do have running water and electricity though. :)

  • Not too long. I use it often to keep updated with my employer, and it's just easier to keep in touch with everyone that way.

  • I worked for the Department of Information Technology for years for the government. If you knew what I know about cell phones you would toss it off a tall bridge into a deep lake.

    I own a cell phone. However, my phone does not have an operating system. It will make and receive calls, send text messages and take crappy pictures. There is nothing inside it to hack.

    You people are playing with a very dangerous toy and have no idea. Stealing personal information from a cell is not that difficult. And all you need to do that is available on the Internet if you know where and how to look.

  • I just have a little one, a 'pay as you go' phone, just for emergencies. No text, no internet, and I LOVE being so FREE!! I leave it off, and only use it if my car breaks down, or some emergency!!
    Happy not to be "CHAINED" or "ADDICTED" to what seems to be the most modern 'drug': the cell phone!!

    • I'd love to be that way. What's your trick? Do you have a secret way?

    • @Geminiwolf21 I'm single, by choice, never having found someone that was really worth my time and had enough to offer, not at ALL arrogant, as that sounds, but I just have a lot to offer, and so many women just don't! No offense!! I LOVE WOMEN!!!
      No kids, so no need to keep track of them!!
      When I am dating, it isn't that I don't just want to text, and email, or talk, all day! There is that natural giddiness, and just wanting to connect, and other things!! :)
      I think it is better, and I appreciate her more, not being so momentary, and having that intimate, personal 'talk time' later, just us, alone.
      I think that not having any instant contact, makes our few hours together, that much more intense, and special!!

    • That's a good idea. But I have a few online friends that are better than any friends I have who live close, so I like to keep contact with them... But everything else is just overwhelming.

      My dad works as the "boss" of security at a museum, and he tells me about young adults who have no stress in their life, who don't have any mental illness, and basically no worries, who get random panic attacks at the gallery. It's because they're too caught up and overwhelmed with social media, and instant messages.

      I'm not as bad as most my age, but I AM getting pretty bad. I honesty need to lay off a bit.

  • I rarely use phone, including mobile phone... so I could go probably forever without it.

  • I run a business so my phone is essential. However it's not a smartphone, just a Nokia 3510i. I don't need any distractions, just a plain old phone. I do the rest on a tablet and I can live without it easily.

  • i have a phone sure. I never need used it until i got a girlfriend but even then i was never addicted to it. As far as technology goes it is a luxury not a necessity. I can go on forever without a phone (honestly).

What Girls Said 20

  • It's funny you should mention this Question, @Mairead, my sister and I were just talking Yesterday of What my own Purpose was for Not having put money on my own cell For... Three weeks.
    I have a Cheap clam phone that I cannot part with, in fact Updated my cell a few months ago. I have an Unlimited Plan that I use monthly for $30.00 and when it is time to Renew, I just simply call "611" and I put the money from my Bank card on this Verizon cell phone.
    However, Since Father's Day weekend when I was So Sore at my sister, I Refused to put the money on this, let it go, and instead She and anyone else in my own family, had to Reach me by my Google phone on my laptop instead.
    I found it Refreshing for Awhile with a Smile, not having Anyone Try Texting me nor Calling me, where I had to See this at my fingertips, but Instead, at my own Leisure, whenever I would Log in to my Google Voice, I can Then see who Called or Text Me... It gave me a kind of Peaceful feeling to have a bit of space.
    Good luck and Great question and Yes, I finally put Money on this last weekend. xx
