Cell Phones

I have just one little question.  Do you turn your cell phone off when you go to bed or just off at all.  The Hubby and I turn our phones off at night.  Too many of The Hubby's customers have his cell phone number and let me tell you some of those customers have called us at night before for silly things.  It's not as if we are doctors or something, he is an electrician so the phone is OFF.  There is no real reason for the question it just kind of popped into my mind.  The rambling mind.

If I were your hubby I'd turn it off also. Not very many people have my cell phone number which is fine with me so I leave it on.

A resounding, Off. In fact, after midnight, even if I'm still up, it's OFF. Good question, though.

Ummm...I'd like to switch it off actually, but I keep it on. I'm not in a profession that requires me to be on call 24/7. The reason is that I worry for my parents. We live in the same city...10 minutes apart. They have both been taken ill early in the morning once each. We had to take them to the hospital. So my husband and I keep the cell phone on at night.

I turn mine off unless I need the alarm for early morning running.

I turn mine to stun. My kids will sometimes text me from their rooms early in the morning - to find out if it's a snow day (so I go to ktul on my phone), or let me know about an early morning practice, or that they just threw up and will be staying home.

I never have the phone off because nobody ever calls us on our cell. They know we rarely hear it. This reminds me that I'd better charge it. They call the cell only as a last measure.

I leave mine on, all the family members have our cell numbers. Oftentimes my daughter calls, after knowing her dad is in bed, and so it saves the land line from ringing.
Plus, it's a handy dandy night light if you need one in the dark ;)
Great queston ...

I have to leave my phone on at all times. My old mother lives across town and I worry about her. She has a SVC phone for emergencies and I don't want my phone to be off if she calls me in the middle of the night.

on, it is my emergency connection to family

Sounds logical for you, but I leave mine on. I've had too many late middle of the night calls from daughters or sisters who needed help right away.

we turn our cell phones off but then we also have a landline. I'm not a big cell phone user. I should have been raised in the 50's ;-)
