Cell owners are extremely attached to their phones — although most don’t see that as a problem. For many cell owners, their phone is an essential utility they check frequently, keep close by at all times, and would have trouble functioning without. Despite this connection, most cell owners don’t worry too much about spending too much time with their phones.
