File this under, “tell me something I didn’t know.” A new Harris survey shows that cellular phones are being widely used by those under age 30! Seriously, it took a survey to find this out? Most of the findings are pretty much what we expected.
The survey shows that 18 to 29 year olds are the largest group that are only using cell phones, or the Internet for making phone calls. Yeah, that age group includes those at universities and colleges, so that isn’t much of a surprise. Slightly – and again only slightly – more surprising is that half of U.S. adults who only use a cell phone are under 30, while one-third of this age group only use a mobile phone or the Internet for their calls.
Other key findings were that about 81% of all U.S. adults taking part in the survey said they had a landline phone, while about 77% said they had a wireless or cellular handset. And a mere 18% of U.S. adults only use a landline phone.
