I'm going to go with no.
I mean their are times when i check it multiple times within a couple minutes, but its usually because I'm in a loud environment and don't always feel if my phone vibrates.
Other than that, it usually just sits somewhere near me all day.

- Try this experiment: Put your phone away for an hour. If you get itchy during that time, you might be a habitual checker.
also, i don't give two $hits if the color indicated that there are no new messages/notifications. i'm gonna check it anyways!

I'm part of the minority then I guess haha. I don't mind not checking my phone for awhile. I'll just leave it in the car a lot of times when I go in to restaurants and such. I like not being available for a little bit. Plus my job doesn't really require that I be constantly connected so that probably adds to it.

Well to be honest at one time when i was in college ( a bore kind of guy ) no one called me. and i was always infuriated and felt bogged down by my own sense of depression of being avoided. Welcome to the corporate world and the phone just keeps on ringing and ringing and ringing. I just wish i never had a phone in my pocket (at times).

God yes. In fact, sometimes if something wakes me up in the middle of the night or the early morning I use it as an excuse to check missed messages, emails, other notifications, before falling back to sleep.
The truth is that I text about five people regularly: my mother, my sister, my best friend, and two other friends. It reaches the point where I THINK I hear the Tri-tone sound and I pull the phone out of my pocket.
I don't really check email all that often, but sometimes when I'm out I'm always checking my Facebook app (amazing in and of itself because the iPhone FB app is GARBAGE) and I feel bad about it a bit after.
