Do you name your phone? And do you assign it a gender as a consequence?
I've seen some people do this. Some guys names their cars. Or private parts. I'm not sure what women name, if they name anything at all. But smartphones are designed to be, for the most part, asexual pieces of technology. But by becoming more and more entrenched into our daily lives, I suspect it's easier to form some kind of attachment to them. I'd venture to say that your phones holds most, if not, all of your secrets.
Add to that things like Siri and Google Now, that can actually give your phone a voice and the line is getting even more blurred. I tend to think that they are becoming digital pets. So, did it ever cross your mind to give a name to your digital pet?
