Smartphone dependant!

How many of you are completely dependant on your smart phone?

My iPhone was stolen last night at a club, and I had to navigate through london in the early hours without it; I felt so handicapped, scared and lost Feel like I am way too dependant on that bloody phone, having withdrawal symptoms now that I don't have it

Re: Smartphone dependant!

I am not dependent on it but it just makes me more comfortable to have it with me.

Re: Smartphone dependant!

^ See I started out like that, but then became overly dependant on it. Add in the fact that I have absolutely no sense of direction, so I couldnt go from one street to the other without having my iPhone out , which I started using more for tweeting and fbing than my Mac.

I miss my iRena

Not dependent at all, just extremely bored in class without it.

Re: Smartphone dependant!

I don't have a smartphone but I have an iPod touch. I'm pretty dependent on it for music, emails and tennis scores, but the fact that I need wifi renders it useless whenever I'm traveling.

Re: Smartphone dependant!

My iPhone is the essence of my life I don't think I would realize how dependent on it I was though until, and I hope the doesn't happen, I lose it or something.

Re: Smartphone dependant!

I have an HTC.

I hardly use it, apart from playing music in the car, the occasional text, and the occasional phoning someone.

I bought it for when I start travelling, I can roam globally, and have all the communication apps I need without taking my laptop, so it's for convenience. I payed a bit, but It's an investment for the future, provided I don't drop it in a puddle or run over the thing.

I haven't become dependent on it because I don't want to be dependent on a bit of circuit board which could fuck out on me at any second, don't need to tweet every 2 seconds or update my facebook, don't need to look at a map to navigate myself to somewhere because I know the roads well..etc etc.

It's an investment for future plans, not a way of life.

Heavily dependent. It literally sleeps on my pillow with me every night. I check it (usually to respond to a text) every time when I roll over in the middle of the night. It's so pathetic, but I don't even care.

Not really, but feel so isolated from the rest of the world when I don't have it

Re: Smartphone dependant!

I wouldnt say dependant, because I manage to get by when it runs out of battery (which is often), but I do use it a lot.

Silly Brad, don't flash your cash & it won't get stolen!

Re: Smartphone dependant!

Sorry about your phone getting stolen.

I'm definitely not dependent of my iPhone but if I didn't have it with me I would definitely be bored a lot more of the time when out and about.

I think when I get a PS Vita I'll start using my iPhone less and see whether or not I have any withdrawal symptoms then.

Re: Smartphone dependant!

I use it often, but not for status updates or text. It's really convienient. I use it for bus routes, maps, school stuff. It's just handy. It died the other day in school. I was pissed but not helpess.
