It's so annoying when people call to early in the morning. Silverlining10 6 years I have to do that when my boyfriend comes over after class or he won't be able to get into my building/room. heineken67 6 years I do this because my phone doubles as my alarm clock. emalove 6 years I would never do this unless there might be some sort of emergency or a serious need for someone to get a hold of me. I usually turn my cell phone off when I sleep and I don't really answer my home phone either if I'm in bed. I figure if it's important, they'll leave a message. kikidawn 6 years my phone is always next to me... it charges on my night stand. Kimpossible 6 years Intersting. When I slept with the phone next to me it was because I was afraid I might need to make an emergency call in the middle of the night because of my x, it had nothing to do with who might need to get in touch with me, rather who I might need to get in touch with.
