More than half of UK mobile users never leave home without their mobile phone and 44% say they could not live without it.
In a survey on telephone banking by Birmingham Midshires, the building soceity found that 51% of mobile users said they always took their mobile with them when they went out, with 26% admitting they would worry about missing a call if they did not have it on them.
Three-quarters of those polled spend up to half an hour on the phone every day, with younger people the most enthusiastic mobile users, with 88% spending up to an hour on it on a daily basis.
But it is not just younger people who have embraced mobile technology, with nearly a third of those aged over 65 saying they could not live without their mobile phone and that they always take it with them when they go out.
Frankly we’re a bit worried by this survey. It seems to be talking about a country that we don’t live in. What’s the point of having a mobile phone if you don’t use it when you’re mobile. Only 51% taking their mobile phones with them when they go out seems like very small percentage. Take this survey with a pinch of salt.
