    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.

    ...not sure it would turn back on again to be honest. I've dropped it so many times, Im on my second one of the same model now, that Im surprised it stays on.

    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...

    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.

    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...

    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?

    It's Never Off.

    I never turn mine off...ever. At the movies? Oh it's on...just on silent or vibrate. I make sure all sound is off. Dr's office...on but silent. Plus my cell never goes dead. I always make sure it is charged. Even when I am gone I have a charger in my car, just to make sure it...

    It Is The Worst Touture...

    ...for me there is.  Well, maybe not the worst... but it's close, lol.  I always feel like I am going to miss something when I have my cell phone off.  It is a big fear of mine that somone will need me and I will not know because my phone is off... Weird, right...
