OK. Advice time. I’ve taken an assignment with Time Out NY (I know! Fancy!) and will have to go through cellphone detox for thirty days. This means, ideally, that after 30 days I won’t use a cellphone at all when I’m out and about and that I will have stopped waking up at 3am to check my AIMs and emails on the Sidekick. Therefore, in order to keep me motivated, I need 30 days of Dr. Phil-esque self-help advice. Thats where you, dear readers, come in.
What can you win? A fresh T-Mobile Dash smartphone from our buddies at T-Mo. This is in conjunction with their Dash-a-Day giveaway, which you can also enter and their very cool MyFaves service.
Read on for the rules…
Here’s what to do: Grab a webcam or video camera. Shoot a one minute video of you telling me to stay strong and your best advice for helping me rid my bloodstream of the mad-eyed toxin we call cellphones. Remind me that carrying around four cellphones is not natural and will give me cancer. Tell me about the best way to keep in touch with my friends, family, and PR folken without a cellphone. Tell me I should suck it up and use pay phones. Anything to help get me through the day. I’ll need thirty of these, people, so get cracking.
