A Week Without a Phone!

Working in the multimedia industry requires a connected lifestyle – having a smartphone is a must, not having one isn’t even an option. Being connected through Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram, WordPress, email and every other form of communication you can think of, needs be at your fingertips. Unfortunately, I also have another addiction; gadgetry.

With the release of the iPhone 5 a couple weeks ago, I decided to sell my iPhone 4S to Gazelle.com – I hate the hassle of selling it on my own via Craigslist or eBay. Being that I upgraded last year, I am only available for the partial upgrade on October 8; the biggest downside is I have to send in my iPhone 4S by October 1, leaving me phoneless for an entire week. This presents a problem not just from an online connected stance, but also from a phone call and text messaging side as well.

Personally, I think it will be interesting to see if I can go a week living a non-connected lifestyle; will I spend more time outside? Without having a phone camera, will I shoot more with the DSLR? Will I be glued to my laptop or iPad more? It will be interesting to see how this all turns out.

I will report back in two weeks on how my week of an unconnected lifestyle unfolds.
