Being without my phone for 24 hours was pretty difficult for me, but mostly I just felt uneasy without a constant means of communication. I felt disconnected from others, particularly because it was a weekend. I had to continually fight the habit of checking for new texts or missed calls, and it was very challenging to make plans. It was inconvenient to have to ask to borrow a phone, or to try to make plans over facebook. I live at home, so getting together with friends requires communication that felt limitted by being without my cell phone. In some ways it forced more communication by not being able to text (thus an actual phone conversation) but over all I felt isolated and inconvenienced.
