Have you ever accidentally left your cellphone at home and spent a whole day without it? If you feel lost, nervous, unhappy and a bit stupid without it – you’re not alone. GetMore looks at the top reasons why we love our cellphones and simply can’t live without them.
Humans need to communicate, and with cellphones we can do this instantly. We can phone, send a text message or email, use instant chat and, of course, log onto our social media accounts. With popular sites like Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, you can talk to anyone, anywhere, anytime.
There’s little denying that cellphones can make your life a whole lot easier. Who needs a map book when you’ve got GPS on your phone that will track your current position, and talk you right to your destination? Your phone is your alarm clock, calendar, camera and sound system, and you can use it for a variety of activities from going shopping to conducting business.
When people stand in queues, wait for a doctor or sit on public transport, the first thing many of them do is reach for their phones. Whether they play games, listen to music, watch videos or surf the internet – with a cellphone in your hand, you no longer get bored.
In an emergency situation it’s reassuring to know that you can get help immediately, by phoning the necessary helpline. Perhaps your car has broken down, you need medical help, there’s a fire, or you’ve had a break-in, with one call (provided you have cellphone reception) help is on the way.
When you want to know the answer to any questions, all you have to do is use your phone’s search engine. It doesn’t matter what information you’re looking for – weather reports, restaurant listings, sport results, latest news, or fashion tips – all of it is available instantly at your fingertips.
Is your cellphone the first thing you reach for when you wake up, and the last thing you look at before you go to sleep? You may be suffering from nomophobia! It’s the fear of being out of cellphone contact or being without a mobile device.
