If it wasn't for the constant paranoia of something happening, like getting into an accident, running out of gas, or something like that, I think I could definitely live my life without a cellphone.

    With the discussion regarding smart technology (in particular, smartphones), and the point you made regarding "roadside call boxes and payphones are not an option anymore", I simply made the connections regarding the societal direction this seems to be going. However, if I went further regarding this, it would possibly reach beyond the scope of the discussion at hand (hence my disclaimer: "that's a whole other discussion").

    Other words, I was thinking (too) big for the moment.

    Texting in the bathroom isn't something I find necessary, but again, if I had to, that would be doable too.
    I was being facetious with you; no worries on my end. :wink-right-eye:

      Yes, absolutely. I've done it before phones were widely available, and I can definitely live without them.

      Though I'm quite sure that some external services will still insist that you own one.

      I definitely could, but is it really worth giving up the convenience of being able to talk to my family and friends? Probably not.

        The society we live in now, the majority of people you know use a mobile phone, almost constantly. It's grown to be a part of a lot of our lives, more than just something we use (as sad maybe and as worrying as that sounds) to use a mobile phone is to stay connected and when I don't have access to mine I do, somewhat, feel shut off from the world. People feel so much further away and I feel uninformed as to what's going on in the world.

        Could I physically live without my phone? Yes.
        Would it be living comfortably? I couldn't say it would.

          I think I could but life would be a lot more boring. I like the distraction of my apps.

          I do make daily phone calls too, so it's important.
