No, not addicted.  I'm the one telling my husband to put the phone down most of the time.

I'm addicted to my iphone and my ipad. We live in a world where technology is evolving all around us and we always want better. I don't just need it for personal use but also for business use and having a smart phone really makes my life much easier. You can do so much more like banking, schedule meetings, record memos, book keeping, etc., basically anywhere and not have to be at home.

I didn't have a smart phone for a while so I really did not know what I was missing. I do all my work on my computer and carry a notepad with me. At times, it is not convenient having to carry your laptop with you. Now you have a mini computer in the palm of your hands, how amazing! I called my iPhone Billy! ;)

I'd say having a smart phone is essential for me but I know when not to use it - such as when you're with a friend, in meetings, alone time with hubby, or family.

I won't let the kids get on till they can pay for it themselves. We don't even own smart phones
