Praful,

I lived fine without it all day...today.  Seriously neither one of us is addicted.  We treasure so many things.  We spent dinner time listening to opera and ballet music for instance, and an hour and a half walking on the beach...no phones are needed.  A

I can live without it indefinitely... unfortunately so long as I'm working that's not possible... but I've gone 12+ hours without checking in and the world did not fall apart.

None.

Unlike Endre Barath, Jr., mine must emit  much needed O2.

very funny question are you trying it out how long you can live without one? last I checked there is no oxygen or H2O that the smart phone emits... so it is a choice?:)Endre

now personally I can go a few hours and not check it, if I am not dealing with  needy clients....
