    I can't go a minute without having my phone

    with me when I put it down for a while I feel as if I lost it and if I don't find for a minute after looking for it I destroy the house looking for it just to find it on the kitchen table.

    God. I'm so fixed on my phone it's unbelievable.

    ..It's no longer a 'want' but a 'need'- I have absolutely everything on my phone; personal and work related! it's become such a necessity that there are times I feel lost without it . For those of you who come from a time when we didn't have cell phones, it seemed almost genius...

    I have the iPhone 4. I know it's not new (don't

    judge me) but I love it. I also love the fact that I can turn off the cellular data and browse the internet and go on Vine, Instagram, Facebook and all the other social apps without draining my cell phone data from my wireless carrier. Overall, I am seriously addicted to my...

    Sometimes I forget it.

    But being in contact with people has become an addiction. I notice immediately when I forget it.

    Addiction doesn't seem the appropriate term.

    I feel more like its a part of my body. Never away from me, always on.

    I left my phone home one day,

    and I kept turning to pick it up while I was at work. It felt like I lost a limb. There needs to be a 12-step program for this problem!

    Gps And Mobile Internet

    I use the bus so I use GPS a lot. No one calls me, so I only have 450 minutes. I try to text, but no one responds to that, either. The internet is great because I can read the news on the way to work.

    My professor called me out today

    and told the class we had better things to do and should work rather than texting... I've been called out before by texting in class, but he's super intimidating and now hates me more than he already did. It can be a struggle to put your phone away/off during class! Haha....

    I get separation anxiety

    when I don't have my phone. It's the only way I can socialize with some people, and when I don't have it, I'm extremely paranoid that something will happen to it.

    Definitely time for a new cell.

    I cannot decide if to go with the iPhone 6 or the Samsung Galaxy s5. Right now, I have the iPhone 5s and I really am not thrilled with it.
