90s habit vs current trend

I have this habit of no desire to carry a phone when I go outside. I like freestyle, like I use to do it in the 90s. Somehow people nowadays, carry their phone everywhere. My friends use phones to contact me, how to retrospect this habit of contact friends?

I carry only a flip-phone, as do most of my friends. I used one in the '90's too or maybe nothing. It makes and receives phone calls, and I use it very little, but it's there for emergencies or a quick phone message. You need to get older friends.

Older friends, as mean as friends that is the same as my age? I know my brain pattern and the current generation might not be the same in terms of habits.

Have been carrying a Mobile, [Cell], phone since they became available, started as a work tool, [back in the times when I had accounts with more than one provider as the coverage was better for different areas].

Moved to a smartphone as they became available and now use the phone as an essential as a part of my work and Personal life. I can make calls to say I'm running late, check emails on the road, I've always got a camera with me, [Ok I do carry a Pro DSLR in the car, that would be my weapon of choice], even when not going out planning to take photographs. I can also find manuals for old gear that customers lost, [put in a safe place], years ago. The help options are countless, some people even play games on them what a waste

I'm Sixty years old but have been an IT pro for many years so am used to be at the leading Bleeding Edge, so think of a Mobile Phone as part of my everyday carry

I carry a flipphone but I keep it turned off until I'm actually going to use it, which is rarely. I got it primarilly for emergencies. Since I use a pay as you go plan, I also disabled text messaging and voice mail so phone spammers wouldn't run up my phone bill (besides, if people want to talk to me, they can talk to me). I spent all my life not needing to be connected at the lip 24/7, especially when away from the house, and I see no need to start now, especially since I've been fully retired for about a decade.

I wouldn't mind the convenience of a smart phone but I've done just fine so far without one plus I don't need another monthly bill or worries about privacy.

I only take my phone out with me if I'm going far or expecting a call/email that needs urgent action, other than that (99% of the time) it stays on my desk.

If somebody wants me they can email and I can answer at my own leisure.

I don't know your age, but I have no interest in being trendy. I have enough of the internet at home. I just bought a GPS for my car, and I'm all set.

Or they can call me on my home phone.

And I'm not a Luddite by any means. I have 3 desktop computers. So, Muz1234, there's your answer. There are more of us than you think.

Now I really feel like a dinosaur. I still use maps. Paper ones.
