Some people can spend a week smart-phone-free, while others can't bear to part with their tech-savvy machine for more than an hour. How long can you go without glancing at your phone?

    This is my phone
    Stupid cell phone companies require an additional charge for smart phones, I'd get a smart phone if I wasn't required to get a data plan as well. I'd only use it through a wireless router anyway. So until I can get a smart phone without a data plan, the phone companies can shove their smartphones up their ass.

    The caption on the ST-NG still is PRICELESS.

    Gene Roddenberry (May He Drift in Space) would've loved it.

    Well, I don't have a smartphone, but I've went months without my regular phone before. The only thing I can't go without is music.

    At one drop-in I haunt, I like to sit near the member's phone and NOT pick it up when it rings. My rationale; it's almost always someone I don't know looking for someone else who I also don't know and since I'm slow to match names to faces (prosopamnesia q.v.), I'm keeping my stress down but get a kick when others demand that I pick it up.

    I retort that it's not my job or to pick it up themselves and if they do, watch them go on a fool's errand running around the place, if they shout, others complain and/or staff will respond, if they persist in bitching (or at me), they risk getting tossed out.

    Eventually, someone will have the bright idea to turn off the ringer or have it for out-going calls only and it would be quieter, WHY should I volunteer that? It's not like I'm the only one with some 'higher functioning' still intact (counting staff).

    (Rhet.) Am I a sick puppy? They're falling for their OWN psychology.

    This is mine: rotary phone
    Can dial out with my phone service & I have one of those 'Lil keypads that can be spliced onto the line just in case they stop supporting pulse dialing
    (should be retained just in case of nasty Solar Storms).

    But then , I still use DOS & have a slide rule

    I have a normal mobile, never had a smart phone, all I need a phone for is for emergencies.
