    Default How long without iphone? Before withdrawals?
    So I was thinking to myself....."Self, I really dont know what I would do if I didnt have an iphone now". I mean really, theres a few cool phones out, but they just do match up.

    Which leads me to the question....

    How long have you gone, since owning an iphone, without using it at all?

    Parameters:

    1. While your sleeping doesnt count.

    2. I mean for anything (We wont count checking the time on the lockscreen - fair) But anything else goes.

    3. If its because you broke it....list it as being broken


    I'll start...

    About 6 hours.

    about 36 hours for me when my last one fried... I was a mess, and it was during a hurricane so I had to wait for the Apple store to re-open to get it replaced. Withdrawal was a mess, I had to use a Samsung Blackjack for the day.....so many buttons......
    So long, and thanks for all the fish

    I sold my iPhone 2G when the 3G was released in USA, because I thought the 3G wouldn't be released with the contract crap.

    Went without one for 2 weeks, bought another 2G, which I sold on the day I got my 3G.

    Worst 2 weeks of my life. I had to use a Motorola L7 and carry a seperate mp3 player. My god the nightmare.

    I depend on the iPhone now. I cant live without one.

    It may be lame, but its the truth. I travel 1 hour each way everyday to work and back. Id literally die without the iPhone in my hands/pockets!

    Not since it came out. If it broke, I fixed it

    I use mine for everything, it is set up nicely. Check gas prices, stock, play games, read the mail, interweb, watch movies and listen to music, if it served me drinks and food I'd never put it down.

    Let's just say if a drunk driver was driving towards an old lady and my iPhone sitting on a bench I'd save my iPhone. I lost my BB 8110 (secondary phone) at the mall and I didn't care at all. I was so happy that it wasn't my iPhone. It's my life. My calendar, email, music, videos, pictures, etc. I love this thing more than my girlfriend.

    Haha, You guys are the best!

    When I had the old 2G, and she didn't have one, she used to say that I love the iPhone more than her!
    But now she has the 3G, and she gets me! LOL!

    sold mine in anticipation of the 3g and had to go nearly 3 weeks without one. honestly, i cant live without it. it sucked.

    funny thing is, my dad who is a total noob with technology, i bought him a 2g a few months back, he turned to me and said "the iphone is the best present you have ever bought me, i dont know what i'd do without it", i just laughed cause it seems to have that effect on everyone that gets one and uses it properly.

    I forgot it home in the charger yesterday when I went out to do a few errands. I felt like I lost my arm.
