    I used to think I was addicted. Then I found out how easy it was to give up Taco Bell. How much worse can my iPhone be?

    I sleep with my iPhone cause that's the only way the sleep cycle app works!

    My addiction wakeup call occured the other day. I only had two things to do that afternoon. Stop at the pot office and make my bank deposits. I had to pick up the new #3 connector for my phone at the post office. Well, I was so excited to get the connector and bring my phone back to life that I completely forgot to stop at the bank. By the time I realized it the bank was closed. For my stupidity I was rewarded with $74 in overdraft fees

    Edit: post , not pot

    I don't even know where the "pot" office is!!
    ( actually, I do, but I'm not telling)

    I use the iphone Speck holder in landscape mode on the corner of my bed. I open up ipod and select the movie and fall asleep watching the movie. I think the iphone stops at the 20% low battery mark and goes to sleep while I am in deep sleep. By the time I wake up, its at 5% and then I put it on charge til it get to 65% then I am good for work.

    I use it almost every hour of the day and night. When the battery gets low and needs charging I switch over to the iPod Touch with Icall till the iPhone is charged up again. It's a visious cycle. I sleep with both of them

    LOL, wouldn't this make clothing clinically addictive too?

    Total BS.

    I don't own an iPhone anymore. Not after all the **** apple has been pulling lately, including child labor.

    If you apply the CAGE questionnaire (for substance abuse) to the iphone. A score of 2 or more indicates a problem.

    C- tried to cut down
    A- annoyed by others bugging you about use.
    G- ever feel guilt from use
    E- ever had eye opener. Had to use first thing in morning to steady the nerves.

    Should we coin the term "IA" Iphone Anonymous.

    anything can be addictive.
