    You're sure you don't make a distinction between smart devices & cellular phones?

    All the functions you mentioned are performed by smart devices (including smartphones); cell phones have only one purpose via two mediums (voice & text), and that is assuming your cell phone has the capability to text.

    I don't mean to pick on you; I think the inclusion of "smart" language is quite important here.

    If you want to use such language, sure. :tongue-poke:

    I suppose the question begs to be asked whether you have a phone you text from, or do you carry your laptop everywhere you go---even in the bathroom to text, assuming that is a thing? :laugh-squinted:

    Which says a lot about where our society is going regarding privacy but that's a whole other discussion.

    As for myself, yes I could live without a portable 'smart' device, including the cell phone functionality they possess for a given period. However, as pointed earlier how smart technology has become so ubiquitous in our global society, this could prove quite inconvenient.
