Default How Important is Your Phone

My spouse said that on the radio the other day, the questions was posed that if you were told you couldn't have your phone with you at work, what would you do? Apparently, many conceded they'd quit or no longer work at that job.

Is your phone that important to you? Do you feel it would be unjust for an employer to say you couldn't have access to your phone while working?

I could do without it if I didn't rely on it for overtime.

I can live without it. I love it but I leave it at home or turn it off on purpose a lot of times when I am out having fun with others. I like to be in the moment and not constantly checking my phone. I kind of miss the days of going to ballgames or somewhere and no one could reach you.

I'm happy to hear comments like this. I was starting to feel like we were losing reality a bit. When I get home, I either shut it off or leave it in my car. You won't see me on it when we are out or at a game. Usually, unless I'm bored, I don't mess with it.

I keep mine with me at all times, for the purpose of phone calls. I'm not one to play on my phone. It drives me nuts to be with someone, trying to have a conversation or even a meal, and have them checking out facebook or texting non-stop, etc.

I think it's important, especially if you have kids etc. Yet, what do you think our kids would do with a, Heaven Forbid, busy signal or if they had to say good night to their bf/gf and it really meant no talking til next day...Like a whole 8-10hrs???

I think it's very reasonable for the workplace to bar using your cell phone while you're on the clock. Just based on how many members on this site that seem to be here every waking hour, your employer couldn't possibly be getting any decent productivity from you. If you only came on to post during breaks and lunch is one thing but to continually post throughout the work day I'd find it hard to believe that you're earning your paycheck and your employer deserves having you do your job!

Right now my phone is quite important as it's the only way I can talk and message with my family 4000km away. And because of the time difference I have to do that while I'm at the office. If it wasn't for this I probably wouldn't care that much about the phone.

Its one of those things where it can totally engulf your life, IF You let it. I see people walking and looking into their phone (before pokemon go tyvm), and I'm thinking to myself, why. All those couples and friends sitting together in restaurant, just looking into their phones. No conversation, no interaction. It doesn't seem...social to me. I don't whip out my cell when there are people around me.
Just my two cents

When I want something it seems very important.

When others want something I just hate it.

I honestly think the old system when we just had them in our homes worked perfectly.

I would be fine without it . I usually don't have it on me at work , and everyone knows how to find me when I'm working . If I'm out somewhere with others I don't use it . I'm not sure what the younger generation would do without theirs .

I always have my phone with me but I tend to put it on silent when I'm home on an evening. I check FB now and again but I'm not obsessive. I don't use it for this site either, I tend to use my laptop when at home for here.

I tend to have my phone with me 24x7, but that is mainly so my team mates can contact me any time. I'm in a small team and we cover on call 24x7 and help each other out when needed. But, I hate the fact my wife lives on her phone during daylight hours. It is almost impossible to have a conversation with her at times since this seems to be her highest priority and she needs to respond to any message within about 10 seconds. I simply cannot understand how someone can spend so long on facebook. Although I am spending a little more time on my phone in the evenings since discovering this forum!

I'm waiting for the Apple watch that doesn 't need backup. As for now, i hate my phone..it weighs down my bag, is often in the wrong place, and adds no redeeming stylish value. Plus, I don't want to talk to anybody anyhow. Don't call me, and I won't call you.

As for my work, i have a multiline landline with decent conference features..one of the last seven or ten remaining in use in the country. My favorite feature ever is vm..best invention to increase productivity since unisex bathrooms.

My phone's the most important phone out there. It makes other phones insignificant. It's going to make America safe for phones again.

I don't care about my phone, have no attachment to it.

I use it for phone calls and texts. I've never been on the Internet on my phone, I just don't need it. When I'm at work my phone is switched off, if someone needs to get hold of me then they know where I am.
