    Default Can we live without using cell phone? Pls comments.

    Hi All,

    I do agree with Haniia's opinion that we can live without using moblie phone though it is so convenience that enable us to contact people easily.

    In fact, having a mutil-functional cell phone don't mean that having an ideal live, in contract, many people nowadays use their ecll phones for nothing but playing games and just simply as a personal status! They save as much as phone numbers to their cell phones, after one or two years, cannot remember who and who...

    No matter how sophisticated your cell phone will be, the thing that it cannot improve your lifestyle but only wasting your valuable time on other stuff. The less time you spend on your cell phone the more time you share with your family and friends.

    no, because cell phone is part of our daily routine. I just can't get out of my house without it. It is my connection, my bridge to my family when I'm at work...

    Discipline that is...using your cell phone sensibly will be just fine.

    I think we can live without using cell phones all the times.
    But you must do some exercises to overcome your addiction
    For your sure after that you will see your great times with your family, and enjoy your free time

    Thanks for great topic

    I had one for a while, a mobile phone that is, not a cell or a handy and then I had a portable (French) for a short time, but I never really took to it and now I never use one.

    In fact, having a mutil-functional cell phone don't mean having an ideal life. In fact, many people nowadays use their cell phones for nothing but playing games or as a status symbol. They save many phone numbers on their cell phones, and after a year or two they cannot remember who those numbers belong to.

    Good con.Stick to the main point!!
    As I go to work, I won't bring my cell phone with me becuase there are no room for staff using cell phone during the work. So, I decided to cut the monthly phone plan abd used a one-off plan instead. Until now I still alive, coz I don't need to call anyone in such urgent, or I can get help by someone's telephone.

    So you use someone else's cell phone? Isn't that cheating?
