how essential are they to you? i barely use mine but if you had to do without them how easy would you find this?
but im sure id notice if i didnt have it
I could probably easily cope with using phoneboxes but it would be annoying to have to carry an address book around and people wouldnt be able to contact me/i wouldnt be able to contace people whenever i wanted.
but im sure if i didnt have one the actual impact would be pretty negligble.
it'd be a pain in the arse not being able to phone whenever I needed to, but people managed a few years ago just fine, so I don't see why I couldn't either.
I'd also lose a lot of my feeling of security, but I'm so paranoid that i believe everyone is out to get me anyway, so that's probably not that major.
I remember the days before people had mobiles :-S
I used to walk around with a book of scribbled phone numbers when going out, and hope to catch people in the right places and times etc. It sucked!
I can't remember any phone number off the top of my head anymore. I used to be able to reel off 20+ of them.
Someone bought me one once but I never used it.
I have trouble remembering to use a diary... although syncing mac calendar with my phone / iPod is really useful.
The virtual golf game on mine is super useful for those long train journeys.
but on the whole: useful.
It makes me sad.
It's not really that important to me. I'll be really annoyed if I don't get it back though because the majority of the contacts I have in it are for people I don't really see that regularly, but want to keep in contact with.. Many I probably won't be able to get back as we have no common friends and stuff.. Which is a real pain.
do your friends live in this decade?
I have a couple who don't even have mobiles. O dear, oh dear.
do they have ur house phone no?
It was inside a hat in the dirty washing basket. God knows how it ended up there, but I got it back, yay!
I'm now going to write out 163 numbers so if I lose it again properly I don't need to fret about it, lol.
its expensive but essential to my life
