    Stylus

    Do you use a stylus? I have one, but I've never used it. I think I might start doing that, though, because I think I can type faster with a stylus than with my fingers.

    I do not have a stylus and I don't think I would use one. I would probably end up losing it if I did have one.

    I have never had a stylus before but the thought of owning one sounds nice. My younger sibling has one and he has been urging me to get a stylus though I have a feeling I might loose it.

    I have a stylus. I've actually got it attached to my phone, though the little loop-y thing at the top. It unscrews from its base so I can use it freely.

    I don't have a stylus and I don't think I would use one. I see the benefits but I would be likely to use it or just forget about it. I prefer to just use my finger but if I had a really small screen I might change my mind.

    I'm sure I would not use a stylus either. I'm so used to just using the keys and I'm fast so I wouldn't want to change that up. I type a lot so I'm so used to the set up of the phone. I can see how some people would like it though.

    I type a lot too and for this reason, the phone set up is quite familiar. I can type without actually looking at the letters. However, the thought of owning a stylus is not so far-fetched for me.

    My LG cell phone came with a stylus, but I rarely use it. I keep in its original box, and I prefer to use my fingers. Most of the time, I can type pretty fast with my fingers on most touchscreen devices, regardless of the screen size...

    My only challenge is using my fingers on a touch screen. When it comes to this, I can really be slow. However, it seems there are a few people that love the stylus to the core.

    Well, if you really can't get the hang of the touchscreen, the stylus is a good tool. I am just worried that I would lose it. The only thing I would like to have one for, would be to circle things, or write little fun notes, but other than that, I don't see it as an absolute necessity.

    I think it might be easier for typing (I am still getting used to the touch keyboard) but keeping track of a little object like that might be difficult. I fear that I would also lose it. It also might be a pain to bring out every time you need to send a text or an email. Though it would be nice to never have to deal with fingerprints again.

    I don't have a stylus and I don't think that I would purchase one. If I bought a phone that came with one, I might use it. I am not sure what the benefit of using one is though. I can type pretty fast with just my fingers on the screen.

    I think that purchasing a stylus is a waste of money. With my luck I would lose it anyway. If my phone came with one, I probably would never use it. I just think it's easy enough to use your fingers to do what needs to be done.

    I have bought two myself, received a mini one as a gift and lost all three of them. To me it is not worth it. The only way I could manage to not lose one is to have it hanging around my neck all day. I really never misplace anything else but these darn things too.
