I was browsing the job postings for a video game company and I noticed that regardless of the job, all employees are given a laptop and mobile device. From the way it's posted, it looks like an incentive, to help promote a relaxed workplace.
I'm not a fan of mobile devices, although I carry one, it's strictly for emergencies, and turned off when I'm at home. When friends or colleagues want to contact me, I give them my home phone and e-mail address.
Could I politely explain that I don't like to use them?
If I were to accept the phone, I assume the managers and colleagues would expect it to be on, and be able to contract me immediately if I don't show up to work on a particular day.
