    I use mine as an additional alarm so it sleeps next to me (ha ha ha).

    I was reading an article about leaving phones out of the bedroom, think it's a cool idea, but since I have no one to talk to, it's just me and my cellie.
    I ain't thirsty. There's plenty of fish in the sea, but I don't want all of them, can I have some standards? Or do we just have to settle, for someone's who meh and will do.

    I sure do. I wouldn't wake up on time without it.

    Frau, the title made me spill my coffee!

    No, he and I are separated at the moment, I caught him talking to other women...

    Actually mine hardly comes out of my bag, unless I have to charge it. I don't use it often, I have a regular phone and this one is only for emergencies while I'm out.

    No, it's on the nightstand. I use it as an alarm clock. I hope when we spring forward we won't have that stupid iphone glitch.

    Its on my nightstand. I use it as a second alarm, which is a good thing considering the amount of times our power has gone out in the last week :angry2:

    Nope. Mine hardly ever comes out of my car/purse.

    My husband, however, sleeps with his. It's usually on the nightstand, but sometimes in the bed. It beeps and flickers all.night.long. It's annoying.

    i'd keep mine on my nightstand but i don't have one, so it sleeps on the floor next to my bed at night. i use it as an alarm.

    during naps though, i do let it sleep in the bed with me.

    frau, is that the most action you've been getting lately? :laughing2:

    a few years ago i dated a guy who used to keep his cell phone under his pillow as he slept. i thought that was ridiculous until i started to sleep with my phone. it's very convenient! of course, he was cheating but still the idea was good.

    nope, no action lately. i think i'm officially closed for business.

    It stays on my nightstand and might come into bed in the morning if I don't want to get up when the alarm goes off. It has been attached to my hip for the past year and now that my husband is home, I am having a hard time getting out of the habit that I don't have to be walking through a store with it in my hand and it doesn't have to go the bathroom with me.

    It's usually just on my nightstand but if my boyfriend is out of town (or if I go to bed before he gets home) I keep it in the actual bed with me. I don't like it in the bed normally because I'm afraid of bumping it and accidentally dialing someone in my sleep, but when I'm home alone and afraid of killers and burglars I want it close at hand :confused1:

    I now have a nightstand in the new house (not fully moved in yet) so now it sleeps there. I much prefer that, just didn't used to have a nightstand!

    I keep my phone under my pillow so I won't knock it down while sleeping, it serves as my alarm. I'd totally keep it on a nightstand, if I had one.

    I have a Droid, and a desk dock for it. I have it on my nightstand, and I have it set up to where the phone automatically launches an alarm clock app when I dock it. So no, not in my bed, but it's within reach while I'm sleeping.

    Yes. We always have two phones in bed with us. :)

    I have an iPhone and SO has a Droid. We both have apps on our phones that track our sleeping patterns and wake us up based on when we're sleeping lightest [the alarm is set for a time range rather than a specific time]. You wake up feeling more refreshed that way. The phone must be on the bed next to you for the app to work. I always thought I would knock it on the floor, but I have yet to.

    We put them in airplane mode during the night. I don't like the cell signal constantly going so close to my body, especially my head, all night long.

    It's nice to wake up more in sync with my sleep cycle, rather than that groggy feeling you get when a regular alarm clock wakes you during the deepest part of sleep. It also produces charts of your sleep cycles each night, which is fascinating.

    Wakes you up when you're sleeping lightest? Really? Mine wouldn't wake me up 'til hours after I was supposed to be at work! My alarm wakes me from a dead sleep every single morning.

    I don't sleep with the phone in the bed with me, but my sister does that. Mine is on the nightstand, plugged in and recharging. My husband has a dock on his nightstand, which is where his phone sleeps.

    I do not trust that thing....maybe I should use it during grad school. As for waking me up on time to go to work...ha ha.....ha.....ROFL!!!! Id be rolling in at mid-day.

    There's no way I could keep it within reach of where I'm sleeping. I use it as my alarm and would turn it off in my sleep. I keep it on my shelf a few feet from my bed. I have to get up to turn it off.
    I think that I deceive genius.:happy10:

    I guess I didn't trust it either initially, because I set a backup alarm the first few times I used it. But I don't anymore, because it works just fine.

    Think about it: what's not to trust? It WILL go off during the specified range. If it cannot detect any difference in sleep during the time range, it will simply go off at the end.

    Sounds like you need this thing more than most! :) I'm going to go out on a limb here and assume you too have sleep cycles, like the rest of us mere humans. ;)
