People Love Their Cell Phones: Not So Much Their Keys or Wallets

I knew I was onto something when I asked geeksugar readers whether their BlackBerry or wallet was more important to them — all in lieu of the story about Naomi Campbell freaking out when she couldn't find her BlackBerry. Sixty-seven percent of you said your wallet is where it's at, even though a new study points in the opposite direction.

USA Today notes that in a recent study, 2,367 participants were asked what they would choose if they had to leave their house for 24 hours and could only take one item with them. The options of items included a wallet, keys, laptop or MP3 player, with one-third of workers selecting their mobile device. Keep in mind that the participants were defined as "hyperconnected workers," which means that they are someone who uses at least seven devices for work and personal access. I can't even imagine spending 24 hours without my phone, I'm getting anxious just thinking about it. I've got two words for you: Nicholas White!

Keys. Then give them to a friend to go in and get the rest of the stuff. (It says *I* can't go back for 24 hours - doesn't say a friend can't!)

Budmufin- to get the image I have as my BB wallpaper, go to media -> preloaded picture -> and scroll down to the second last row. Left click on the image and select "set as home screen image" . Hopefully that works!

"seven devices for work and personal access". how?! I can't even think of seven devices! This is tricky. I will go places without my wallet but will still bring my cell phone (like to someone's house).

The wallet is the more important choice since like kcwebgirl said it has your cards/license.
