When my son lived here,he'd complain at all the calls he would get at night,so I said to him,in no uncertain terms 'You know that there IS an off button,don't you? Why not use it!!!' As someone who adores their privacy,I think that mobile phones can be a major intrusion into our lives. This does not mean that they don't have some excellent aspects!! They certainly do,just not at night by the bed when we are sleeping!!
I do not have one!! But even when I did have a mobile phone.I turned it ON at 7.30 am and OFF at 8.30 pm. If people could not get me on the mobile there was always the landline. And the thing is that I know if I get late calls they are indeed URGENT!! Or they darned well wouyld want to be!!!!
Yes. It is beside the bed on the bedside table on charge overnight. I don't care so much about emails but I do need to be able to get texts. There could be emergencies or there could be a change of plans for the following day. If lunch gets cancelled, or any other appointments, I would like to know about it, and I will stay in bed. Plus, my husband does night shift so we would rather receive texts. I hate it when people ring on the home phone and wake him ( one of our phone outlets is beside the bed ), so an sms is a better idea for us.
It is always on because I never think to turn it off. However, it is never in my bedroom. I quite often wake in the morning to see a message from friends who rise at the crack of dawn and go to work. Funny how they think the rest of the world must be awake too. Mine is old and only has phone and text so it is not too bad. . . unlike HIS which burps, coughs and f@rts at every function. Grrrr. I am like Jules . . . ring me on my landline IF you have a limb hanging off or a tiger in your bed . . !
My husband and I leave our phones and my iPad in another room overnight. I ave heard that it is not good for our brains to be near them all the time.
We could hear them if they ring but are rarely disturbed by late or too early phone calls like we were when we ran an earthmoving business.
