Do you look at it every few minutes?

No, not at all, when I am driving, although I have equipment in my car to take phone calls, I switch my phone off, put it in my handbag,my main focus is driving.

I always have my phone with me but rarely use it, just keep it in my bag for emergencies

I go days without looking at mine, in fact, people have stopped ringing me because I never answer it.

A perfect martini should be made by filling a glass with gin, then waving it in the general direction of Italy.

Never argue with an idiot......they will drag you down to their level then beat you with experience.

Absolutely NOT.....I don't even take it out with me as I never hear it anyway...shops are noisey......and with everybody looking down don't they realise it'll cause a saggy neck and aching shoulders.....no thanks - I have these things without a mobile phone.....giggles...

No. I have got one and find it useful to keep in touch with groups of friends or individuals. I try but don't always succeed to remember to take it out with me in case of emergency but I don't let it rule my world.

Not at all.

I forget about mine and often leave it in my bag or on the table, and find a message hours later.

I know that if there’s anything urgent, they will ring.

I guess I am. I have it with me all the time. I have all the useful apps so I don't have to drive anywhere to conduct business (pay bills etc).
I didn't think I was so attached till I thought I'd lost it one day. Then I had a sick feeling in my tummy thinking of all the ways I use it which would have to be replaced or done differently. That would be a pain in the neck.
I stop short of having the sound on though. Vibrate is enough.
