Tomi suggests that mobile phone is the first always-on mass media. Research shown that 7 out of 10 people sleep with the phone within arm's reach.

I find this rather interesting, come to think of it I never had my mobile turned off as well. :o Well, unless it runs out of power, but thats another question.

Question of the day is: Do you ever switch off your phone, manually?

If yes, why? Let the :gathering: begins shall we?

In the last few months i've switched it off a few times, but mainly to change sim cards and stuff, but once because it was playing up.

It's always arm's length away when I sleep, so I can turn the snooze on without having to get up :P

:lol: Thats exactly the reason why I always put my phone away.

Having to walk before reaching the phone (which acts as alarm) prevent me from getting back to the bed again. :P

No. Unless it requires a soft reset, and that happens at least once a month for a heavy use pocket pc. :1:

As you guys said, the only time my phone is off is for a few seconds while I'm rebooting it. Thanks to call managers, it doesn't even wake me up with calls in the middle of the night anymore either - unless the caller is on my white list of course... :)

I Turn my phone off 1 time a week ( cingular reps tell me it helps keep the phone up to date, I think is crap but I got into a habit of doing it). I also keep my phone next to my bed (arms length) on My multi phone charging station. It works great and doesn't cost very much.

It's always on unless i do a restart on it. It never runs outta battery cause i always put it in it's cradle when i get home.

The only reason i won't respond straight a way is either i have no reception (orange is poor where i live). It's upstairs in the pc desktop charger thingy and i'm downstairs (i don't get a reception downstairs anyway) or i'm busy or at work.

My room and the PC is not in the same room so it's not next to me at night, but it would be if i was on holiday or i needed the alarm for example. It's always on silent though, i need it on silent for college, but i turn silent off when i go out and weekends

The charging station looks neat. You should see my electronic charging place. It is a mess. :P

I hardly ever switch mine off, I have had my phone about six months and would say I have only shut it off twice manually. My phone is also always within my reach especially at night so if there is any emergency I can reach right over to answer it. :wacko:
