    Let's say that you lost your phone and you will have a new one in 24 hours. Can you survive that time without it :D

    I don't have a house phone, the only phone I have is my mobile, so I like to have it with me at all times in case of emergency. I could survive for a day without it, but really I'd much prefer not to. If something were to happen to my phone, I'd be hoping to get it replaced in less than 24 hours.

    Yeah definitely one can survive without phone for a day...it is not like air necessary for breathing....but yeah other side is that it will be a very difficult one too in this age of technology and especially when businesses thrive on cell phones....

    It wouldn't be ideal, because that's how most people contact me, but I could definitely deal without it for a day. I could deal without it even better if I had at least a days notice to when I didn't have it, so I could notify those who often contact me that I wouldn't have it with me that day. I lived without a cell phone before they became popular, and I could deal without one just as I did before I had one.

    I could but would be worrying a bit about emergency, but that's rare.

    I take my laptop everywhere with mobil internet connection, and could stay in touch with close contacts via IM or email, etc. Could exchange texts via IM too, and Gmail also could function like a phone :).

    Different people have different views about mobile phone. Some people want to connect with mobile phone all time and some others don't want to check it. I can survive without mobile phone for 12 hours. It is really very important for me to keep mobile phone.

    I can definitely survive without it! I have been with no phone for over a year now :D Like, everyone in my house has it and I gave my phone to my sisters so that she can use it untill I crack my final year medical studies :p I really dont want to fail! But, had the question been "Can you survive without the internet", I would be telling you - please! dont give me nightmare!

    May be we can survive for days without phone But in the time of emergency, you will know how important it is. Like you are stuck somewhere and you need to call. So, take a phone whenever or wherever you go outing.

    I think it is completely depends upon your lifestyle if you are a businessman I think it is impossible to manage without a cell phone but if you are a student you can survive atleast a day without it ;)
