I thought this would be interesting to see the different responses on this. So here it goes.... Considering the "need" most of have with our smart phones, how long could you go if you did not have it (day, week, etc.). Whether it breaks, lost, or stolen...... I had my Maxx shut down 3 months ago and I didnt have a phone for 1 day. It was misery because I constantly communicate with work email, texting my wife, banking, etc... My replacement was sent the next day. But, if I didnt have it, I would have activated my INC2. So my answer is 1 day...... My...my how times have changed. Ask this 15 years ago and the title would have been "how long can you last without your pager?"...LOL!!!
