No cellphones, no Facebook, no instant messaging! Five teens from William Tennent High School: (L to R) Dave Silver, Will Toms, Hillary Gack, Alex Sellen and Laura Succa, have agreed to go tech-less for 10 days!

They're all smiles now. The happy teens show off their cell phones before the moment of truth when they surrender them for 10 days.
To help control any impulse behavior or severe cell phone withdrawals, the NBC10 Investigators put their cell phones in a lock box! We're also monitoring their Facebook accounts.
