Unless someone tries to convince me otherwise in the twelve hours or so before I step foot in the Verizon store, I will be seeking a replacement for my dying BlackBerry that is not a smart phone.
I am finding I just do not like being so connected all the time. It is nice for short weekend trips away, when lugging around a laptop is a pain, though other than that, I could really care less about following tweets and the latest Facebook status messages.
(Did I mention the Verizon store is just a few doors down from the Apple Store…? Where I could buy an iPad to take on weekends away instead of lugging around the laptop if I am going smartphoneless…?)

I couldn’t imagine being without my Android phone, but I can see your reasons. I like having FB and Twitter handy, checking my email on the go, having my Google calendar available, etc.
I don’t think you’re crazy! I’m nuts for my iPhone, but for me it’s not about being connected all the time — I rarely check email, Twitter, or FB from my phone and there are very few people who have the number to text (or call, ew) me. I do like having my music with my phone and apps that let me do things like watch baseball and keep track of my money and my workouts with very little effort.
I couldn’t live without being connected in some way.
I forgot my phone the other day when I went to do laundry and get a few things at the store and I was lost without it.
I couldn’t tweet or call anyone. I couldn’t check my grocery list. I couldn’t read my book.
I ended up finding a piece of paper and a crayon in my purse to write a list of the random thoughts that were running through my head without something to occupy my time.
IT was scary!!
