I Never Turn My Cell Off

    Why Would I?

    I do keep my cell phone on all the time. If it gets low on battery I just charge it. What's the point of letting it die? Seems a bit cruel just letting something die, don't you think?

    Only If...

    The only time that my phone gets turned off is if the battery is low and it dies.. which happens pretty often... and then its a ****** deal hahaha and sometimes if Im mad at a boy and he keeps calling.. then I will too.

    I'm....

    Emergencies Can Happen At Any Time

    I used to turn my cell phone off a lot. I really hate talking on the phone, so I didn't see a point in having it on and wasting the battery. Then, one night we almost lost my mom. No one could get ahold of me, they didn't have time to drive to my house because they had to go...

    Primary Phone

    No Way! I use my cell phone as my primary phone. I have a land line but only for DSL on the computer and there's no phone connected to that line.  I have a wall charger, car charger, and an extra battery so I don't ever feel the need to turn it off and never do.

    Always On

    I always keep my phone on in the fact that someone will want to call or text me needing to talk about something. I'm known as the nice guy with all my friends so they always want to talk to me about something. I always tell them you can always call me even if I'm sleeping...
