Whoops, I forgot to end the previous poll over the weekend... This week's poll was from me. The topic on hand is whether notifications, alerts, and/or calls will be noticed by you while you're sleeping, as alarms still go through the silenced mode

You can submit poll ideas here

Previous Poll Results:
Question: You die due to a world catastrophe and suddenly find yourself back in the past a few years before it happened. Do you...
Have as much fun as possible before the catastrophe happens - votes: 786 (18.7%)
Let the catastrophe happen but try to prepare better and live through it - votes: 1841 (43.9%)
Try to prevent the catastrophe - votes: 1570 (37.4%)
There were 4197 total votes.
The poll ended: July 28th 2020

I've been seeing a lot of stuff about the anime for Japan Sinks 2020 recently. Maybe I should give it a shot

No, but it is still within hearing distance (in case of a call) because I use it as my alarm. I turn the phone off if I don´t need an alarm and don´t want to be awakened by a call.

Japan Sinks 2020 is one of the biggest artistic anime failures in years and thus amazing. A rare case of so bad it´s good with anime. 🤣/10 My review: page=1#post778670

I use my phone to listen to audiobooks while I try to fall asleep. That's the only reason I keep it close by.

Yes, but in silence mode.

I always put it on silence mode. I turned on the vibration though, so I can still know if there's chat notification.

What made me surprised a little bit is, so far, there are at least 4% or more people who did the polling that don't own a cellphone. I know there are some people who choose not to own one, but it's very few. Of the people I've met, I only know one person who don't own a cellphone at all. It's really amazing.

I'm from a generation who have experienced the times of with and without cellphone. But I can't imagine a life without my phone now. How can I contact my friends and family without it?

Yes, but it is in a silenced mode ...but only to be able to check the time, at any moment. I should get a decent clock, with a red (and thereby "inoffensive" ) display, at which time I'd happily just turn it off, when I go to bed.

Edit: I never answer a call, made while I'm in bed. On principle.

Technically it's on vibrate not silence but it is on.

I have a signature?!

My phone stays far enough away from me that I won't get burned by it. Yes, this has happened to me before. I was lucky it wasn't anything serious and healed well on it's own.

Yes, and it is not silenced
Same with Trimutius above, due to the nature of my job I need to keep it near me and not in silenced mode.
I put the phone on my work desk beside the bed, within 1 meter from me.

I had one bad experience sleeping with silenced phone when I was still in training, and let's just say I swear I won't ever let my phone in silenced again when sleeping.

It's my alarm. I should buy a battery alarm because it's not a good habit to fall asleep with your phone.

No it's not nearby because it makes me force my body to wake up and close the alarm.
