    How bad do you have it? I could really live without a phone and often consider it an intrusion to my privacy. But i'm old school. How about you?

    I am thoroughly annoyed whenever my phone receives a call or text. I have no respect for people who are addicted to their phones.

    I selected them all except for spending extra money on a game and taking a selfie. All others apply. I can't make money without my phone.

    I use a landline and am selective about who gets the cell phone number.
    I act like I am bestowing an honor when they finally get the cell number. - then I tell them I don't answer it - ever.

    I see that as different - it's a business tool, rather than an accessory .... :dontknow:

    My dad is 58 and had only used an old school phone up until about 2 months ago. He was super annoyed by smartphones as well. Now he has an iPhone from work and is admittedly addicted. Hold out for as long as you can!

    We still have a landline. My wife works from home quite a bit and they require it in case she needs to fax. She has never needed the fax in 7 years. The only thing we get are solicitations for charity or sales people and the occasional bill collector.

    I have to keep a cell because of my business. I still conveniently forget and leave it at home once in a while. If it rings, I have to answer it :facepalm:

    My wife works with a guy that was the same way. He hated people on their phones. He'd actually go out of his way to be rude to them. He'd get mad at people for texting him. He got an Iphone a while back and is on that fucker 24/7 now.

    I don't have a land line so I would be screwed if it didn't have a cell phone for two days.

    :jj: That's me while sitting in the doctor's office, waiting on an appointment etc. Don't want to look like I'm not important in front of all those people.
