People are too attached to their phones to ever let them out of their sight, myself included, I’ll admit relunctantly. Phones are at this point an extension of the self.

@CunningFox I have to turn off my phone in hospitals and medical labs. Also theaters. When voting for the next pope cardinals are threatened with ex-communication if they bring a phone into the voting station.

Some places have scattering fields that makes a internet connection impossible. Also voting for government positions you are not allowed to take video inside.

Up until the iPhone SE/20 came out a few months ago I was sporting a iPhone 6. A very old phone and I had no problem with it. But the SE is banging deal so I grabbed one.

But a few weeks ago I decided I was sick of my phone and grabbed an 30GB iPod Classic on eBay for 60 bucks. No internet. Just me and horrible punk bands from the 90’s. A list of albums and songs. It just stays in my pocket and I don’t need to glance at it every minute. Me and my shitty taste in music on a nice long walk in the park.

It is pretty liberating.

@RedDeerGuy1 Ah, true true true. I guess I hust mean more in the sense of litetally turning in your phone. Even if you have to turn it off for different things, most people are comfortable with that as long as they can keep in it their pocket or purse.

I’ve run security, at events, where we put people’s phones, in locked bags.

I got rid of my phone years ago but my husband has one.
I am pretty sure he’d be fine leaving it home.
