    The 'olden days' is not that far back......the 1990's.  At that time, very few people had cell phones - I know I sure didn't.  I was answering phones at work and I had a land line at home - the last thing I wanted was a stupid cell phone to distract from my driving and quiet time.

    This is a habit. The smart phone has become valuable due to the advanced features and there are various functions in the smart phone. The companies are adding new features to grab the market of young generation.

    It was easy. I don't even have a cell phone at this time. I've gotten a prepaid one before. The hardest thing is GPS. Back then, we had to pull over and call someone at a pay phone. There are no pay phones now.

    I have never owned a 'smart' phone and don't want one.

    No you wouldn’t have died. In fact you probably would’ve had better concentration, more money, a betteive life,  longer attention span, less generalized anxiety disorder, etc. You could have ruled the world

    They didn't know about them and their lives were just fine without them.

    Hmmm...you would have "totally died?"  Seriously?  Why--because none of your calls would have gone through?

    Old times people didnt notice this as their brains were smaller & needed less action!Or why else didnt they invent those things yet?
