Mobile phones have become an indispensable1 part of our everyday lives. We use them to communicate, access the Internet, take photos, listen to music, watch videos, we can even use them to pay for our purchases2 or count our daily calories. Just pick and download a respective mobile application. However, a French author Phil Marso declared 6 February as the World Day without cell phones, and it has been celebrated since 2001, initially3 in countries such as Canada, Spain, France, Belgium, Switzerland, and Finland. Do your own nomophobia4 test: how long can you go without your smart phone? And try to train your memory at the same time – memorize the numbers of the three most important people from your list of contacts.
