    I am reluctant and have a hard time letting family members and friends use my phone, let alone strangers. LOL

    For some reason I get anxiety when people want to use things of mine so I avoid the situation when possible and am constantly aware of what's going on should the situation arise. I have some a-hole 'friends' that are careless with things so I guess that's where it comes from but even with people I trust it's the same.

    I should really get over it, right? ;)

    Family members no problem, but friends changed my mind last week when one of them locked it trying to guess my pattern. To make things even better there apparently is a bug on the droid that wont accept your gmail password as correct so you have to reset... It was bad.

    The only people I'd let use my cell phone are my trusted family members. That pretty much excludes my older nieces/nephews as they have this tendency to post embarrassing messages in my facebook status when I'm not looking.

    if it is an EMERGENCY and they need to make a QUICK call, I will click on the phone icon for them and have the keypad already out for them to dial and talk. And I am watching them like a hawk. After they done with the call and they are trying to figure out how to hang up; I will insist that I will take care of that and back in the pocket it goes.

    I don't know anyone without a phone so there is no need to let someone use mine.

    I've never had anyone ask to use my Droid, but I suppose I would handle the question in these manners:

    :) Family member asks = no problem, please use my phone;
    :) Very close friend asks = no problem, please use my phone;
    :icon_eek: A friend (not very close) asks = Hmmmm... it depends on who it is;
    :) Coworker asks = no problem, please use my phone;
    :mad: A stranger who simply needs a phone in a non-emergency situation asks = No way, sorry Charlie.
    :) A stranger in obvious trouble who needs to dial 911 ask = no problem, please use my phone.
