In this constantly changing world, it's hard not to be connected to our cell phones. Last week's CI CyberNews CyberPoll asked readers if they ever consciously turn off their phones and/or leave them at home in order to "unplug" for awhile. The majority of respondents (50%) said they never disconnect, while the remaining respondents were divided: 20% said they unplug daily, 10% unplug a few times a week, another 10% are unreachable at least once a week, and the final 10% unplug less than once a week.
Participants shared some interesting comments:
"I carry a phone for my convenience and so I can decide which messages need an immediate reply and which can wait. I prefer that to the alternative where an urgent message might not be answered when needed."
"I never leave it home (unless I forget it), but it gets turned off every night."
