Last week we asked you what do you do with your old phone once you upgrade to a new one. I’m proud to report that most of those who voted don’t throw their old phone away, but either give it away, sell it, or just keep it around the house.
Out of 372 readers who voted, 37% have their old phones lying around the house, 25% give their old phone to a family member or a friend, 11% use their old phones for other projects, 8% donate them to an organization, and 1% throw them away. 18% voted for the “other” option, and judging from the comment, most of those sell their phone – an option which should have been included in the poll, as many readers pointed out.
Full results and this week’s poll after the jump.
Don’t forget to read the poll’s best comment by Carolyn Fitzpatrick, who won 150 reward points for her contribution!
This week’s poll question is: How Often Do You Check Your Email?
I came up with this question after noticing a significant difference between myself and people around me. Namely, most people who own a smartphone get into the habit of checking their email all the time, no matter where they are or what they’re doing. On the other hand, there are those (like me, for example) who only check their email when seated in front of the computer. Some, naturally, are somewhere in the middle. Do you have to check your email all the time, or are you content with letting things wait?
Share your email experiences in the comments. Do you find that people expect you to check your email more often than you’d like? What are the pros and cons of checking email often? Or only on the computer? Share your thoughts below.
