RE: could you live one day without your smartphone?

Exactly, so many are so addicted to them that they have no clue what's going on around them. hole

RE: could you live one day without your smartphone?

No. I use it often for work. Also,I'm an administrator of 2 Facebook pages & once in a while I have to deal with unhappy members.

Happily though, they are 2 easy groups to administer

I don't have a so called smart phone..I suppose they were right in calling it smart for so many being addicted to their phones.

RE: could you live one day without your smartphone?

No as I use it for work

But am finding my online usage has increased in he last few months

During the week I had an appointment which took 2 hours my phone was on silent
When I checked my phone I had
5 WhatsApp messages
2 missed calls
1 text message
None of there were urgent

I honestly hadn’t realised how much time my phone takes up in my day till this happened
I’m going to start turning my phone off for a few hours each day and try cut back on my online usage

RE: Falling in Love Online - Have you or Haven't you?

Of course some people find love to share with another that lasts a lifetime and they probably did 'fall in love' at the beginning of the relationship.
But that feeling of being in love, or falling in love is always temporary. The honeymoon period as we sometimes call it always ends sooner or later, the 'falling' cannot last.

There has to be a landing and quite often it's a crash landing.

At this point the relationship either ends as the realisation that the 'other' who we have invested all this emotional energy in is not the magical other we have search for and wanted for so long. They are not the perfection we have projected onto them, or them onto us, how could we be?

Or, we accept those feelings could not last forever and allow a more meaningful kind of love to developed. Some people call this, working on the relationship."
Couples can and do developed true meaningful love for each other that can last a lifetime, but only after the heady journey of falling in love has transcended into something much more special and much more loving.....but those true loving relationships are in the minority.

Mine's not that smart, it's an iPhone and new, but it can't cook, clean, do housework or garden work. So how smart is it really? smoking

I still prefer my laptop, but I write so there's that. I don't like texting, I am one fingering it and that's really slow with the cell phone. doh

RE: could you live one day without your smartphone?

Easy cause don't have one and never will. I use my landline. Carry a pre-paid burner flip phone for emergencies. Better than a life line. And cheaper. I hate texting. Especially to someone with a smartphone. Replying.......you have mail...argh...still replying...you have mail...ENOUGH already. I am trying to pick out letters, can't you give me a chance!
The only use I see for cell phones is in the woods or on the road. Try and find a payphone on the interstate when your car breaks down.
I am not big on phone talking anyway. I feel guilty..mom was alone and used to call me 6 times a day..are you watching PBS, NO mom, I was on the roof. Came running down when outside bell went off.
Wish now she could call me. Wish I had giving her more of my time. Life sucks.blues

RE: could you live one day without your smartphone?

Of course, I can survive without a smart phone for longer, than a day. But life is more convenient with one.

It happens that I go night paddling in order to see bioluminescence. And by definition, I return from that paddling very late, often alone on the ferry and then for ca 50 km alone on the road through forest. If something happens - like a collision with a row deer or and elk - it'd be handy to be able to call for help and tell to road assistance my location on this planet. And then sit and read a book or a newspaper or my feed on FB or clean my photos or the like, while waiting. Given, I'm still alive :)

And it's only one example.

RE: could you live one day without your smartphone?

I have an AT&T iPhone and I don't like it. My daughter got a deal on it cause she wanted to be able to text me instead of a phone call. She has long thin fingers and will text indefinitely. I have short fingers so I can't do the fast texting that she does. To me texting should be 10 words or less. If you have more to say then that pick up the phone and call or send me an email. I'm still trying to get used to using voicemail on the darn thing.

A few days ago I had dental surgery and the dentist called me at night to see how I was doing. But it wasn't a phone call. He dictated into his phone which then converted it into a text that looked like this jjkkee93mmd;mmmd. I had no idea what he was saying except for a few words inbetween the gobbly gook.

I still have my old flip phone that was much easier to use.

What do I prefer? I prefer the landline phone that hangs on the kitchen wall or sits on your desk.

RE: could you live one day without your smartphone?

At the moment, I do not have a cell phone. Many years ago I did have a pre paid Tracfone my father bought me. When he bought it the package only showed the screen of the phone. He did not realize or read the package that it was a Susan G. Komen breast cancer phone that was pink. Nor did he realize that it cost $10 more as a donation to breast cancer awareness. I still have the phone but it has not been activated for a while. My Father died over 5 years ago and my Mother died almost a year ago at the end of this month. When I lived in Colorado, I had a black Tracfone that was a telephone only no texting or internet. When I moved to Florida that phone was obsolete.

RE: could you live one day without your smartphone?

Had you asked if I could live without a celllphone, I'd have had a problem--that would've been maybe. The problem being that there are no pay phones anymore so going for a drive would be a hazard.
Given the inept design of the keyboard, the computer applications on my smartphone are less important--read hardly every used.

good boy, and condoleances on your mother. My father past away 2 years ago, my mother is still alive, aldow it was critic for one year back. I guess becoming an orphan gives me some kind of freedom, but I also think it will leave me confused.

RE: could you live one day without your smartphone?

I've never had a smartphone, don't want one... and don't need one... The last real phone call I got was 9 years ago, when mom was still alive. I have a flip phone that Iast year I used for 5 minutes, it sits on my front seat, for emergencies...


I enjoy time away from things like that, I don't need a computer attached to my hip...

I was thinking about this situation along similar lines. What was even odder, for me (being the only single person in the group) the married woman stated her opinion of who she would wear makeup for with her husband present. To each her or his own I guess. wine

RE: What does it mean when a married woman tells her girlfriends that ....

I think that means that woman is a very sad person with a very sad life, who should be looking at herself internally, instead of looking at her friends' husbands... Just my humble opinion... dunno bouquet

RE: Uniforms For War

Interesting how a movie like Red Dawn had everyone worried the russians were coming to get them, when in reality the worst war criminals are inside your borders.
