How bad would it be for you if all cell phones suddenly "went away"?

It seems that all over the planet, people live with a phone glued to their ears. How would we get along without them?

I don't know if I could get along without one . Back before I had one, I couldn't imagine why I needed one, but I think it would be next to impossible to give it up now.

I would be just fine. The only part that would suck was not being able to talk to family half way around the globe. Letters would have to work I guess.

Eh. I don't use mine too terribly much, except for asking people when and where to meet up. I prefer face to face interaction. I'd be fine without one.

I'm at home so often lately it wouldn't bother me much. I'd just use the land line instead. I guess pay phones and phone cards would make a big comeback!

It'd suck but I'd live just fine.

GONE! GONE!
I don't know how I would keep in contact with people at all. And, like, I'm so used to people texting me when they come by to see me, how would I know when they arrived without a cell phone? I mean I guess they would just knock on the door but I'm not used to that anymore.

Return to good old fashioned letter writing! People would have to think, and slowly language and writing would improve!

I'll survive. I don't use it that much anyway.

Not bad at all -- being on call stresses me out, to be honest.

I'd adapt. We all would...there really isn't another option.

I could live without it. I held off getting one for a long time and then they removed 99% of payphones and I caved in eventually. I really don't use it that often.

Other than with my wife and children I don't use my cell phone often. Now if you took my iPad away I'd freak out!

I don't use my cell phone for frivolous things. I rarely use my cell to "chat" but I use it for my patients, my agency and my family.

My job requires me to be available to my agency and my patients at all times. For what I do, a land line wouldn't work. I used to do this years ago, before I could afford a cell phone and it was really difficult. If I couldn't find a patient's house, I'd have to find a pay phone and then call them or the agency and get directions, if I was late, same thing. I would need to give my family my patient's home phone number in case of emergency, and that wasn't fair to my patients. Also, my agency can text or call me for last minute appointments with patients.

I also like my cell so I can keep in touch with my children. A few weeks ago, I had to stay with a sick patient. I had to call one child (an adult) to make sure she was home to let my youngest child home, then I got a call from the child at school who had missed the bus. Then she had to call her sister, from her cell phone for a ride home (as I couldn't leave a sick patient until her reinforcements arrived with the medications.) Then, I knew my youngest child was safe, via my cell phone, while my patient and I were on HER phone with her doctor.

It would be difficult to use my patient's home phones to get in touch with the agency or my family, or other patients.

It's a gift to my work and my family life.

I would survive I am sure but like someone else said since they have taken pay phones out of almost everywhere you would be screwed if you got lost,car broke down or things of the likes. I went almost 9 months without my cell phone til recently when I got another one. I use it to keep in contact with my partner while he is on the road while I can talk on the phone all day long I would rather text. Him however it is phone convos that he would prefer so it is a blessing in someways and a disaster in other ways.

*shrug* It wouldn't bother me because I don't talk on the phone unless it's absolutely necessary. If I need to get in contact with someone, I'll just IM or send a message on FB.

You would adapt. I Don't think it would be a big deal. People rely too much on those little conveniences nowadays

Whenever I am watching an older movie and there are no cell phones, or computers, I do think about how much the word has changed. I think I could very happily live in a world without them!

It'd suck pretty bad. I wouldn't want to be without my cellphone.

I think I would be okay, I don't use it that much and when I do it's more for texting than anything. I hate to actually talk on the phone.

could totally live with it. Then again I remember when we didn't all have cell phones and were just as happy.

I personally would love it. It would make a home business harder.

I've had a cell before, and my mother always found the damned thing on my bed or dresser because I rarely ever used it. Even now I refuse to get one because I don't see the sense in it. Maybe when I get a job.

It would stink, but I would be ok. I do know people who would freak out though. My cousin is never off of her cell phone.

I would survive but my business wouldnt, I do a lot of emailing, calling, and internet stuff from my phone on the run

I'll admit, I'm WAY too attached to my phone. I think I'd go crazy without it.
