    I'd probably have the thing surgically implanted, but with a very sophisticated screening program. My family could tweet each others' brains. It would be cool except for when my older son sent me those ten hour long intentionally repetitive youtubes he likes to prank me with. FWIW, schools now seem expect parents to be reachable at all times. They don't think it's funny when they can't.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    I have a 'dumb' phone, hence I don't have any 'apps' nor GPS navigation. I don't have a Facebook or Twitter account, or anything else of the sort. I use it to make and receive telephone calls and text messages.

    I wouldn't give it up because it's the only phone I have (unless you count my office phone). "Giving it up" wouldn't be a 'relief', it would be a colossal pain in the ass.

    Cell phones are evil because the government can track people with them!

    I, for one, will avoid getting one of those death traps in favor of my own personal security!

    I don't use my cell phone a whole lot but I'm definitely keeping mine. It comes in handy during emergencies and it also serves as another way to get Internet when I go places without having to haul my laptop.

    It would be very impractical for me to give up my cell phone. Unfortunately, I heavily rely on other family members for transportation.

    I don't view my cell phone as a leash like many of you do. Maybe it's just the beauty of not being close to many people, but I don't feel the need to constantly socialize with any of them.

    But I suppose I've come to rely on my phone a bit too much for entertainment...

    I depend on the thing for work. Good probably outweighs the bad. When I quit working, I am sure I will use it less. Dont carry it with me much on weekends.

    I deactivated my smart phone two years ago, the same time I deleted my facebook. The only people who had a problem with it are the ones who can't reach me anymore.

    I never really cared much about cell phones and definitely didn't see the need to get a 'smart' one, until my relationship turned long-distance, then I loved having a smartphone with 24/7 access to the internet
