  1. This is so true! Teens really think they need to reply to messages, calls, etc. and become very stressed when they can’t put their phones down. Going on a cruise is another way to be without technology, I hear.

  2. My smartphone suddenly packed up about a year ago. It was a bad design and I got a small phone while I decided what to replace it with. I’m still using the ‘disposable’ phone I got – it’s so small and light and easy to use because all it does is make calls. And it’s much easier and quicker to turn it to silent mode!
