According to a survey out today by iome 20% of us have dropped our phone down the loo at some point in time. Fully a third of us would feel lost without our phones and 25% of us would feel out of touch with our friends and family. However, 12% of people would find loosing their mobile a positive experience, claiming it would make them feel free.
Phil Eames, CEO, iome said: “The survey demonstrates that many people now rely on their mobile devices to connect and interact with friends and contacts – whether via text, calling or even via mobile internet. The way
in which people communicate with one another has evolved over the years and the reliance we have on these devices is obvious. It is now seen as a multi-function device that enables conversation, social interaction and keeping up to speed with where your friends are and what they are doing, at any time.”
Personally I'd feel more lost without my PC and my yoga mat - I'm always being nagged for leaving my phone out of charge, off or at home!
What's the wierdest place you've left your phone and would you feel lost without it?
