I can't really go without my phone for long. Mainly because ever since I started to get panic attacks, I feel like I need it with me at all times in case of an emergency or in case I take a bad panic when I'm alone and need to call someone. I try and go walks every few days without my phone so try and break it being a safety object for me.

It depends who I'm with. If I'm with the people I message a lot, I'm fine. Definitely addicted to the people and not the mobile phone

I went with the 1 Week option since it's the longest, but i know I can go on for longer without my phone.

Though if we were to talk laptops then that would be another story.

Optionally: A couple of days maximum.

If I have no choice, I learn to adapt without it - like when my phone was in repairs

I had to vote 1 week. But I have not charged mine for a fortnight, and even before then it was only charged for a week.

If I'm with people that are good to hold a conversation with, then I can go without my mobile phone for as long as I'm occupied with them
However if I didn't have anyone to talk to id pretty much be bored without my phone

i guess its quite hard for one to live without mobile no matter how hard you commit to yourself.

P.S : mobile is slowing becoming a part of our life,also we end up taking portable charger so it remains with us all the tym..

I've gone eight months when I thought I'd lost it for good.

My phone breaks a lot so when its playing up I can leave it for a few weeks.

As much as I hate to say it - I don't think I can live longer than a day without it now. It's become such a way of life for me. I mean, I could probably go a week if I really had to, but even then, do you not feel a bit out of touch with the outside world if you go a few days without social? Probably.

I went ~ 2 months without my phone when I was travelling in South East Asia.

It was alright, stopped at an Internet Cafe every few days.
