What do you mean sleep with? I do have it close by on my night stand since I use it as my alarm clock.

I've got a Pebble Steel smart watch so while my phone is charging across the room, I never miss a text, call or alarm. so i don't sleep with my phone because i don't need too.

Do I sleep with a phone around me? NO! recently I had a study report that says "radiation is a hazard if placed near you while sleeping." the report also concluded that such radiation could affect your body the next time you wake up

Sometimes, but I always wear protection...

Seriously though, I don't have my phone in the room often, especially since sometimes I forget to turn off the auto notifications and I have people texting me from across the world halfway through the night (and waking me up) so I only have it with me when I need 2 different alarm times (one for me, one for the wife)

Yeah, helps me sleep. I surf the net until I'm all burnt up and sleep easier. Phone also serves as an alarm.

That sounds wrong:-\

#11 Posted by Skyz_ (56 posts) -

Yes... I do use it as an alarm though so it has to be nearby. However it does mean I often wake up with it sticking into my spine :/

No, though I ain't got a partner ,I'm still not that desperate to f..k my phone.

I keep it on my desk or night stand for a alarm clock.

If you by sleep with it mean to sleep next to it, then yes. If you mean to have sex with it, then yes.

It's next to me because it is my alarm clock to wake me up in the mornings if that's what you mean?

No, I don't have phones.

I have to have my phone near me when I sleep. Not only is it my alarm, it's also linked to my corporate email account and is the way in which my employees contact me throughout the day (and night) if necessary.

I keep it next to me on my nightstand and use it as my alarm. There was only one time I ever slept with my phone, and it was the day we flew back from vacation and I was exhausted laying in bed playing with it and just fell asleep.

Granite counter-tops give off more radiation than a cell phone.

my phone is less then a foot away from my head every night. its my alarm clock.

My phone lies on my left side in the unoccupied bed space. I could put it on my nightstand but I always knock water over grabbing for it when the alarm goes off. Haven't spilled it on the actual phone yet, but I'm running out of lucky breaks.

#22 Posted by Bardock47 (5297 posts) -

It is on my nightstand very close by.

#23 Posted by helwa1988 (2102 posts) -

I do keep my phone on the pillow next me.

@foxhound_fox: well...for a second I thought you said Kryptonite,but heck,I always like my wooden furnishings,strong and radiation-free,fyi..nearly all of my furnitures are made of wood

Yes. It has its own pillow and I make sure it's tucked in tight and snugly.

I don't sleep with it. I leave it on top of a desk in my room so I can hear the alarm in the morning.

I did not have sexual relations with that phone.

Wha...it was all recorded? Weirdest POV ever?

I did not inhale.

Yes, I do. About a week ago my friend called me at around 3:30am because his newborn baby had stopped breathing and lost consciousness. Obviously I told him to call 911. Somehow, I managed to get to their place in less than 5 minutes, even though they live about 25 miles away from me. Fortunately, pigs, I mean cops didn't see me as I was speeding to get to my friend's place. By the time I got there, he was still on the phone with 911. I grabbed his phone and told them exactly what was happening and where we're located. My friend's English is horrible, much worse than mine.

Fortunately, the baby is fine now. I don't even want to imagine what would have happened if my phone was away or turned off at that time or if I was pulled over and had to waste time explaining to a dumb pig why I was doing it in the first place.

So yes, my phone is very close to me when I sleep, especially after the events such as the one I just described.

it's my alarm clock but it needs to be far away from my bed to force me to get out of bed to turn it off and not just snooze it.

What my phone and I do behind closed doors is no one's business but ours. Don't judge us OT.

Same. I don't want it near my head when I go to sleep every night. Because radiation... and stuff...
