nope. Some days I forget it until my husband gets home from work and asks where I was all day. OOps!

Yep I agree with you. =)

Quoting SlightlyPerfect:

OMG I thought I was the only one! I feel like every time I talk to someone who has a smart phone, their attention is on the phone. So I won't get one. I don't want to end up like that. I don't care about what people are doing on Facebook all the time. Plus, I'm too cheap for a data plan. I can do everything I need right over MMS.

Quoting MichelleK41:

I do not own a smartphone, LOL.

I don't have one.  I think people are disrespectful when they are messing with their phones when they are supposed to be spending time with you.

 Probably a little bit!

No. Although I've never left it anywhere and I don't forget it, it's more like my lip balm than a life line: I use it when I need it and otherwise just carry it around...

I have never owned a smart phone, if fact, my husband and I share a cell phone. We live in the boonies where we get no phone service so we have 1 home phone and 1 cell phone. No need to pay out the wazooo for smartphones.

Ha! I don't even know what a smart phone is. Is that what you young people use for instantly messaging on FB and etc. ? I am addicted to some TV shows: Dance Moms and Project Runway

I dont have a smartphone.

I have to say the addicted people can get annoying. I have a friend that can never put her phone down. Were out to dinner and its always there, shes always checking it, always replying to fb or whatever. Its seriously obnoxious!
