Your Fourth of July vacation may have started already. And as many of you are trying to get away, some can't seem to get away from one piece of technology, cellphones.
Eyewitness News spoke with one woman who actually had to go back to her house a couple of times to charge her phone from using it too much.
"You get addicted," said 39-year-old Kimberly Fazekas.
Westernville resident, Kimberly Fazekas says she's been camping with family and friends since Saturday.
And, one thing's for sure, she can't go a day without her smartphone.
"I don't have a charger for my car however my friend staying at the other camp has a charger and now I can charge it," said Fazekas.
Kimberly says she goes on Facebook, posts pictures, checks the weather and keeps in touch with her daughter via texting.
She says her iPhone is so convenient and everything is at the palm of her hands.
"We actually extended our reservations to stay through the 4th and we did that all online on our cellphones," said Fazekas.
But, one Central New Yorker says all this technology is hindering people from appreciating nature and having fun.
"They got to have texting with them. There was a guy out there texting out on the boat. But, he's supposed to be enjoying himself. Kids don't know how to enjoy themselves anymore," said Brent Scott, Sr.
Yet, despite all the fuss, the 73-year-old says having a cellphone is handy.
"I use it because I drive a truck for a living and I got to have it. And I bring it here so it's convenient for us to have if we need to get a hold of the children," said Scott.
16-year-old Ryan Martin says teens just want to keep in touch with friends and stay in the loop while they're away.
"If they're with their family, no offense to my family... if you're around your family all the time you get self-inclined and you want to talk with your friends," said Martin.
