That's great, I liked this a lot.  I'm about seconds away from doing the same.  It used to piss me off when people were glued to their phones instead of paying attention to everything else, and now I'm doing the same damn thing.  I would not get a big yellow rotary dial phone however.

not had a mobile for like 15 years

Be radical, have principles, be absolute, be that which the bourgeoisie calls an extremist: give yourself without counting or calculating, don't accept what they call ‘the reality of life' and act in such a way that you won't be accepted by that kind of ‘life', never abandon the principle of struggle.

I've had a "smart"phone for a few years now and have never used it for more than taking pics here and there or checking the weather and I really can't stand texting. That being said, the next phone I get is going to be a flip-phone or whatever they call the non-smart phones now. I just don't get the people I know that leave their phones on while they sleep or can't be without them for fear of having a nervous breakdown. You really do see nothing but people walking about with their heads down playing with their phones and it has gotten so ridiculous that now there are repetitive strain injuries such as "text neck" from people's addictions to these things. There is such a major disconnect from people who can't put the phone away at dinner or even on dates and now what could be conveyed in a ten second phone call is drawn-out over multiple texts - it is just ridiculous.

My thoughts exactly. I find it utterly pathetic seeing people walking down the street holding their smartphones in front of their faces waiting for the next absolutely useless Twitter/WhatsApp/whateverApp message.

I've bought my mobile phone €12.99 in Italy 3 years ago. It's a very nice phone, and it accepts 2 SIM cards. I don't think I'll ever get a smartphone. I have more control over my life without one, and I enjoy not living with apps with which I would have to share all my travel info, nor any personal information. I switch on the computer when I want to read/send emails, and if I don't want anything like that, I just keep it switched off.

I have a smartphone. It's great. However I don't do facebook, instagram, twitter or any of that shit. I don't game. Hardly anyone has the number and I probably wouldn't pick up anyway. What I do use it for is taking photos, navigating and mobile internet usage. For that it's amazing.

I don't find a 4 inch screen all that exciting where I would want to spend hours interacting with it. I find it ok for *phone* calls.  Wink

Uh, too extreme for me.

Quote
I can only speak for myself, but it wasn’t the handy features that were the reason we broke up – it was the addiction. I was constantly checking emails and social media, or playing games. When I found out I could download audiobooks, the earbuds never left my lobes. I was a hard user. I loved every second of it.

I even slept with my phone by my side. It was what I fell asleep watching, and it was the alarm that woke me up. It was never turned off. I’m certain I texted while driving, in dark movie theaters, and out with friends around restaurant tables. It got so bad that I grew uncomfortable with any 30-second span of hands-free idleness. I felt obligated to reply to every Facebook comment, text, tweet and game request.

Why not use a dumb phone (i.e non-smartphone) instead? You can't go online on those and there are no apps/Facebook/Twitter/Guardian to play with. Pretty hard to get addicted to those things. People might have very legitimate/urgent reasons to contact you when you're not at home.

The picture that you included in the main post it's not a smartphone, btw smartphones are much addictive and the new generations of people can't live without it(simply they can't imagine the life without a smartphone in their hands)

There's this great thing called an off switch that should be somewhere on your phone you can try for a few hours.

When you are addictive using the phone sometimes it does not matter if online or offline, but the essential is making calls.
