Everywhere we look someone is on a cell phone! Texting while driving, talking while walking, ringalinging in public places! Some people can't even spend a day without messing with their phone!


Are you addicted to your cell phone? Do you think cell phones have helped or hindered people's abilities to function in daily life?

Fantasy, Horror and Sci-fi. I'll try basically anything though. I also love strange and unusual RP genre concepts. Different is good!
I used to never be addicted, but since I got this new 'smart phone' that may change.

i think it's helped in A lot of ways, but at the same time it feeds peoples need to be constantly stimulated.

If anyone uses a cellphone for something other than its basic function (which is to call and text), then they're doing it wrong.

And no, I'm not 'addicted' to my cellphone. I bring it every time I have to go out, but that's mainly because I have to keep in touch. I actually hardly ever call or text unless I need something or am in a tight situation.

I'm not addicted to it. I hate to talk on the phone. I never call people and when people call me, I'm always hesitant to answer. XD

Texting, though, I'm pretty reliant on. Though only like 4 people in my life will text me consistently... I bet I could live without my cell phone since I have other ways of communicating, such as Skype, email, MSN and Facebook! Only REAL reason I have this thing is for emergencies. And because we don't want to pay a bill for house phones...

These devices really are useful, though. I can definitely see how people involved with popular businesses can use these, especially the ones that allow you to keep a schedule. College kids can sure make use of them, too. There are some awesome phones that you can take notes with during a class lecture. o_o It's so cool.

Nope, I despise my current cell phone... Keep it mostly for emergencies and since I don't have a home phone.. Rather talk to people in person.

I hate how cell phones are just getting outdated faster and faster too. So I'm holding off for a bit on getting a new one...Still, don't think a new one will cause me to get hooked on it...

<3 I ADORE my phone. because it's just so chubby cute and colorful (has a black case with floral stickers & shiny gems all over it!)
Also, because it's a dual slider.

When I had texting, my phone was my BABY <3 everywhere I went, every place I waaaas <3 my phone and me were like GLUED TOGATHARR <3

now, i don't have texting anymore, but my phone is still my best buddy <3

I use it for calls, notes, calendar organizing, alarms, reminders, musicc, boredom relief, and photography <3

Only reason I have a cell is so I have a phone number that's my own. The people I call the most is who I'm living with. "I'm at the store, do you want me to pick up anything." and "I'm on my way home." For major conversations I prefer to be in person and with people I can't be in person with, IM has been the major way I communicate. Which is actually interesting since I don't text, and in fact have it blocked on my current plan.

Mostly Fantasy and Sci-fi, though I’ll do anything if the plot is good.
I use my phone:

To call

To text

To wake me up in the morning

TO keep a to-do list.

Usually when it goes onto my belt in the morning it stay there all day.

I had my cellphone turned off for like, over a month...it was...nice.

Today made me hate them ._. .... MY CELLPHONE MADE ME HATE MYSELF! ;____;


I got a new phone today since my other one was broke + I had to renew my contract but the main guy passed my phone off to the new girl & she didn't know what the hell she was doing so she did SOMETHING & the new phone ended up sending like, A BARRAGE of txt messages to all of the contacts I've had on my phone since summertime...


It made some people mad....


they mad
i mad
i mad they mad
they even madder
i sad :(


It kind of made me contemplate the whole idea of even HAVING one but then I realized that I really DO need it...I need it with me in the wintertime incase I get stuck in the ditch & have to call someone for help. I didn't have this luxury for a while last winter & ended up walking everywhere when my car broke down, so my ears & hands got really frostbit. I need it in summertime when I get trapped by sudden storms & can't make it home on time...and holy shit do I need it to take random notes so I don't forget things.
