  1. The have a good laugh section is pretty entertaining, I must say, it had me chuckling pretty good at times. Then, the more I thought about it, it had me sad that so many people are that attached to their phones. I enjoy being away from my phone, I enjoy going out doors any from technology. I wish more people could do that.
    I also work with youth in my area and I can see how addicted they can be to their smartphones. I may end up buying some and giving them the NoPhones at least during lesson time.

    • Hi Dan,

      Yes, I know what you mean. The dream of being always being connected to the online world sounds like a really good idea until the realisation that people expect you to reply instantly at all hours of the day and night to some query, that about 99.9999% of the time in my opinion can really wait till later.

      I personally enjoy walking in local parklands with nature and I always, nearly always, put my mobile phone in silent mode for that walk, as it is part of “only me time” which I use to recharge myself.

      You should at least get one or two of these NoPhones so that you can show them to the youth in your area, after of course, explaining their main selling points. Or just simply point them to this post. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

      Peace,
      David

  2. I loved the have a good laugh part of this. Too many people rely heavily on their phone for texting and what not. I am not one of them LOL. I keep my phone handy for incoming calls, but that is not very frequent either. Maybe I need a life, and just maybe things are fine. I don’t do a lot of texting, and I really don’t like spending enormous amounts of time on the phone either. You can go into a restaurant and it is kind of sad to see a couple sitting there having dinner, yet both on their phones. What is up with that?

    • Hi Matts Mom,

      I came across this product and the story associated with it, and had a really good laugh. I decided to include the NoPhone in my have a good laugh stress management technique because this NoPhone ties in really well with the concept of “unplugging” yourself from the online world really well, and for the pure entertaining aspect of it. Always good to have a laugh. The different generations use smartphones in different ways, with the younger generation using them more and more.

      Maybe restaurants should get a number of NoPhones, so that when people come in to eat there, they temporary exchange their real smartphones for a NoPhone so that they can enjoy the total experience of eating and socialising at the restaurant.

      Peace,
      David

  3. Your NoPhone discussion has to be one of the most hilarious things I have ever read. A phone that doesn’t do anything to deal with the fear of not having a phone! XD
    I love the idea and will no doubt be sharing this with my friends!

    I have to give you kudoz, your discussion about this “not-phone” is very appealing!

      I nearly fell of my chair with laughter when someone pointed me to a video about this product. As it does tie in with the idea of “unplugging” from the online world as a way of helping health, I decided to write this.

  4. Hey David,

    When I first learned about the No Phone I didn’t realize how well it was doing.

    I’m happy to say that I’m not addicted to my phone. When I’m with my family I don’t even think about my phone.

    Now, another way to look at the No Phone is for children who always wants the latest and greatest phone.

    I know people who have children that have great phones and working just find, but they get so stressed out because the new latest phone does something special. Then their old phone doesn’t hold value anymore because everybody will know that they don’t have the latest phone.

    They beg their parents to buy them the new phone or it is the end of the world.

    If my daughter did that with me, to her surprise, her next gift will be the no phone. I will give her options. She can go with no phone or she can accept the phone she has now, Lol.

      When I first learned about the NoPhone, I nearly fell of my chair with laughter.

      On a serious note, a lot of people are “attached” to their phones a lot of the time and in my opinion, this is not good for people. People should be able to “unplug” themselves from their phones and do other things. They can check in later to view any “important” messages for them.

      You could tell your friends about the NoPhone and refer them here. At least one thing that you do not need to buy for the NoPhone is a protective case as it does quite well in drop tests. πŸ™‚

      Peace,

  5. Hi, David!
    Thanks for this! I didn’t know about this NoPhone, but now I am curious.
    You made me laugh, David, and that is great. We all need more laughter in our daily lives.

    I am happy that I am not addicted to my phone, and in fact, I don’t even have a smartphone, just a normal mobile phone. I don’t even want one, because I have a computer and tablet. If I need to check my email or do other stuff on the internet, I can use them.

    I love going for walk, and it always makes me feel better and less stressed.
    I love the idea about unplugging. I know that too many people always use their phones, but don’t connect with nature or people.
    This world is so beautiful, but sadly many people don’t see the beauty of nature and their surroundings.
    Why we always need to hide from the world? I am so glad I truly can enjoy my walks, connect with the Earth and myself.

    • Hi Linda,

      Thanks for your comment. I am happy that that the article make you laugh. When I first heard about the NoPhone, I very nearly fell off my chair with laughter. As the NoPhone itself ties in with the concept of “unplugging” from the 24 hours a day online digital world in order to help with well being (reduce stress and reduce anxiety) I decided to write this article, with the “hint” that people “unplug” from the always on digital world.

      I am delighted that you are not addicted to a smartphone. I have a smartphone but I do not use it as a phone. I use it as a “hand-held” computer connected via WiFi when I need it to be connected to the digital world. I use my laptop for almost all of my computing needs. I use my smartphone for a few selected Apps.

      I use an old mobile phone for my core phone needs (making calls, receiving calls etc). I can leave it in my pocket. I can not do that with my smartphone. If I could, and the screen size was better, I think I would be using my smartphone as a mobile phone as well. πŸ™‚

      Glad to hear that you enjoy walking. It is a brilliant stress management technique to help manage stress or to help manage anxiety.

      Peace,
      David
