    My mobile phone is a part of me

    I am trying to suggest that my mobile phone has become a part of my body as I am heavily dependent on it.

    I need an interesting and amusing way of expressing this idea.

    Examples:
    -I am glued to my phone 24/7
    -My cellphone is an extension of my body

    But I think there should be a better and more interesting way of expressing the idea.

    Re: My mobile phone is a part of me

    I am addicted to my mobile phone/smartphone.
    I am not a teacher or a native speaker.

    Re: My mobile phone is a part of me

    The thread title is actually a good way of expressing the idea.

    Other options include:

    I'm lost without my phone.
    Losing my phone is like losing an arm/leg.
    I can't live without my phone.

    I'm sure there are many more.

    Re: My mobile phone is a part of me

    Is this correct? :

    -I am glued to my phone 24/7

    I still think there are more creative ways of expressing the idea.

    I still think there are more creative ways of expressing the idea. Likely so.
    I spend more time with my phone than my family/spouse/significant other.
    I love my phone more than my kids.

    Be honest, we all probably know at least one person for which one or both are true....

    "My phone is a part of me" is short and sweet and sums it up. (My opinion.)
    Not a professional teacher

    I agree. But it's not amusing enough. I mean I am always trying to find amusing ways of expressing ideas.
