Absolutley yes! After the scare my Mom gave us the whole family is on the anal retentive side about it. She left her phone, car broke down and she walked 4 miles in the dark! We were all going nuts with "what ifs".

+1 My wife and I do the same thing. My phone charges on my nightstand and her phone on hers. In the morning the phones wake us up at our respective wakeup times. Then when we are getting dressed our phones come off of the chargers before we move to the kitchen. Mine goes directly into my pocket.

If I turn around and go back for it Murphy will make sure that there is a really long line at the gate and I will be late.

Yes - but my phone is also for work and I am sometimes on the road trying to do office work via my phone. If it wasn't necessary for work I think I'd leave it home for the day.

I have forgot my cell phone at home several times, but haven't forgot my gun yet. If I'm not on a time schedule to get somewhere, I will go back home and get it. Murphy is always waiting just around the corner.
I dont use my cell for work and 9 times out of 10 when it rings it's my daughter ( single dad ), so I like to have it on me at all times. Can't beat it for emergencies.

The easy thing to do is get an extra charger and put it in your bedroom. Charge the phone while you sleep and then just put in with your belt in the morning. About the only places I ever charge my phone are on the nightstand and in the car...

No, not unless I am going out of town. I don't carry it everywhere I go unless I expecting a call from someone close. Few have my cell phone number. I realize the discussion is about needing to call from your cell, but I will just take the risk.
Wonder how we ever got by without cells? Now it gives us something to do while driving or waiting for someone. I wish folks could get it so that they don't have to shout to talk over a cell.

I won't even walk out of a room without my cell phone. I spent years on call 24/7...so it became part of my body essentially.
