Why not?

I used it twice but felt guilty

Why so cheap...

It's free ! You aren't stealing. I iMessage from my work phone all the time. Wrong ?

iMessage is free. Skype is a service that Deloitte pays big bucks for. BTW, I used to work in IT. They track this all the time, just don't flag it unless you are a repeat offender

Also M1: "Reasonable" personal use of work phone is allowed in policy. 80:20 to be precise, as per guidelines

Yeah . I think till the point you're not doing anything illegal it should be fine

I use it everyday....my wife talks for hours....no guilt...also D never asks, its VOIP, I pay for data...

How do you know if you actually have inattentive ADHD vs general anxiety? Those of you who do: how long did it take to get diagnosed?

It’s interfering with my day to day ie I easily zone out and get real anxious halfway through conversations (even short ones) Zoom calls are no better. I often forget timelines & major details esp about people. (I was talking to a friend about someone and forgot we all work together)
