I have never owned an I phone. That would be zero days for me.

I have never had a broken droid phone either. 

My landline phone is up and running as well as my computer. So being without a cell phone for a few days would not cause issues for me.

Zero.  I have good cases and I have my old phones as spares.

Oh my!  I went bat sh!t crazy when I had to wait about an hour and a half while my phone updated when I bought a new phone.  I've never really been without a phone for many, many years. 


I can't be held responsible for what might happen if I didn't have one for 3 to 5 days.

Ouch!  My phone just had to be replaced and it only took me about 24 hours to get the new one.  That drove was bad enough, but three days would drive me absolutely crazy.  I will note that my dad says that is a short drive for me.

I don't own an I Phone s0 my response would be none.  I use an Android and to be honest, I have never been down other than leaving my phone at home for a few hours. 😇

Our phones have become the lifeblood of our business and personal lives. It has got to be difficult to be without it. I am in need of a new phone myself because mine is doing all sorts of weird stuff, and the battery only lasts a couple hours. Hopefully you will get your new phone soon.

Never had that problem. I have Verizon for my carrier and if need to I can use an old phone until I'm up and running. Good luck.

The longest I went without a phone since I broke one was around 12/hrs. But I don't use an iPhone, I prefer HTC or Pixel because of their great service and support...

Back in the day, could not go one hour without my money-making phone! One time she broke down, and I was resolved to buy another instantly but didn't have to as she came to her senses

Near me are two malls each with a Apple Store. They are both always jammed full of people needing help with their non-functioning phone.
When mine died 4 years ago those at the Genius Bar had me up and running in minutes. But the time spent to get those few minutes of remedy was about 2 hours.
I think the moral to the story is there are a lot of iPhones that have gone wonky.

My IPhone died while on vacation at Lake Tahoe.  It was miserable being without it.  I was without a smartphone for about two weeks.

A while back, I dropped my iPhone 6 and the face shattered. It still worked but the broken glass was ugly and dangerous. In a couple of days, I replaced it with an iPhone 12.

My phone is too important a business tool to be without.

WOW! Only the time it takes me to get to the Verizon store and for the data to be transferred from my broken phone to the new one! ONE day is unacceptable, muchless 3-5.


I would change carriers in a hot Denver minute!
