I have always been slightly attached to my phone but when Hubs deployed I became VERY attached to it because it was our only means of contact for over a year. He had very little internet access so email/facebook was not really a good way of chatting and our phone calls were only around once every 3 weeks so I became very protective of my phone. I did not want to miss a single call because I never knew when the next one would come. That protective streak has stayed, even though Hubs has not deployed in the last 3 years. It goes everywhere with me and I would be lost without it.
