    I don't mind if I don't have my phone near me, in fact, I prefer it.

    I haven't had a working cellphone in months and I'm completely okay with it. Don't get me wrong sometimes it stinks not being able to look something up or directions etc without having wifi but for the most part, everywhere you go has wifi so It works out.

    I refuse to own a cell phone. I don't want to be bothered when I am out.

    I will never own a cell phone. I don't want people to be bothering me when I am trying to enjoy my life.

    I like to keep it near having kids in their 20's they like to text or video chat. One lives in a different state, other different county.

    I feel absolutely naked (but nicely disconnected!) without my smart phone!

    I usually have my cell with me when I'm out of the house but I seldom look at it. It's mainly just in case I need to look something up or one of my kids or husband needs me to pick something up. It's definitely a convenience but I don't feel crazy when I don't have it.
