I am sorry to say that the phone isnt the problem here.
You just need to stop caring so much about what other people think.
So what if you answer a 5 page text with just 3 words?
So what if you dont reply or call back in 5 minutes?
Your friends and family EXPECT you too reply constantly, and to do it fast, because that is what you normally do.
Sure, it will be awkward for them in the beginning if you change your cell phone behaviour, but they will adjust to it eventually.
Human beeings are very good at adjusting to new situations - that's what made our species so succesfull.
So dont throw your cell phone away, dont be mad about it ruining your life. Just change your own behaviour when using it.
And then your cellphone life will be back to those good old days again in no time
