Can you survive without..........

the Internet or Mobile Phone.


We quite often go for days without the net. Wifi is not good in our area. Somedays we have no phone conection either thanks to Orange.

After living in this village for a year i have now got used to it.

Mobile phone is not a problem, i don't have one, i did buy one but never used it.

How about you?

I have a mobile 'phone but hardly ever use it. Take it with me as a precaution if I'm driving on my own. I survived without a computer 21 years ago so possibly could again although I would miss it if I didn't have one.

Well, obviously I could but would prefer not !

Have a very old mobile but no need to upgrade as I only use it as a phone or to text.

Fibre optic has recently arrived here so in the process of installing. Could not believe the speed difference on my sons laptop ! Happy days.

Mobiles and Internet

Like Dottie I don't use my mobile much. It''s pay as you go and I probably only top it up with £10-£20 once a year. However, I love the internet - Delia, Facebook, Google, Scrabble, etc and would really miss it now.

I could survive without the mobile but for instance, my hubby currently in hospital for a short stay and we need to communicat.
Couldn't survive without the internet. It's my link with the world. Email is a godsend for communication; better than texting in my opinion.

I'd struggle! I use my phone constantly, and I think the internet is one of the greatest inventions.

ANYTHING I want to find out is there in front of me on a screen.

My sister in law can not cope without her Mobile or Face book for contacting people. Always has her phone in her hand, just incase it rings.

ok the net is perfect for finding information, but i make my kids look in books first. Then if they really can't find the info they can search the web.

Phone.

I use my phone quite a bit but I hate, detest with a passion, speaking on it! I hate phone conversations. If I can text or email, I will......

mobile phone - yes, i could and do live with one, well i do have one, that has not been topped up in 3 years which had 10.00 put on it, and it still has somewhere around 4.00 left on it.

internet - big fat NO, life would be awful without it now, after having it for 12 or so years, especially as i no longer have my huge supply of reference books now, to find the answer to all those weird questions i think of.

Love the internet and my phone but I'm not using them every minute. One time when we had a big family 'do' the younger generation were tapping on their phones constantly! How boring! I wish we'd had internet when I was a student for research & suchlike and I will admit to using it for general knowledge crosswords as well as planning holidays.

Biggles !

not without the internet.....

Like you Sue we have a lot of 'outages' where the phone and internet service is concerned. I find that very difficult to cope with. We bought a laptop late last year and that has been a real life saver. It's always possible to find a WiFi connection somewhere. We have recently returned the favour to our neighbours who lost their phone and internet connexion for a few days. I didn't even know we had WiFi here until early last year. Friends would arrive and say there was a strong WiFi signal and I said it must belong to one of the neighbours. Doh !!

As to the mobile phone..... always in use in the UK. Here, there is no signal unless I wander off to the wood pile, quite some way off. I've got used to not using the mobile. I have one which I try and keep with me when out in the car. However, I usually forget.

I did survive for many years without a computer or mobile phone but I appeciate the usefulness of both. My phone is not used a lot but it is very useful when I lose someone in a shop, or make a mistake about where I am meant to meet someone. They both make life a lot easier.

Computer/mobile 'phone

It is interesting to see that lots of people could live without a mobile phone - is it an age thing do you suppose? - my step children certainly couldn't survive without their smart phones but we oldies have one, but it lives in a drawer and only comes out when we travel. The computer is a different thing however, wonderful for research and for e mail and Skype I would really miss it (and do when we have power cuts)

No I can't and won't survive without my phone or IPad or laptop or pc :-) . My phone is glued to me at all times and I use it for FB and Twitter as well .

Can we live without a mobile phone, yes we can and do. OH and I both had mobiles when we used to live in the U.K. and since moving to France had not found the need for a mobile phone, which is lucky in a way because as we live in such a remote area and surrounded by mountains the signal is very weak.

Internet is a different matter because OH is a self employed Consultant Engineer so we could not live without it. Actually we are very lucky to have Internet access in our village as many of the surrounding villages do not. Without it there is NO way that he could do his job.

We only have a landline because we need it for internet access. We never use it for making calls as we make all our calls via Skype. So if we did not need the landline for internet access we could quite easily survive without the landline also.
