One Third of Adults Pretend to Talk on the Phone

According to a recent survey from Pew Internet & American Life Project,  30% of young adults (ages 18-29) have at one time pretended to talk on their cell phones in order to avoid interaction with another person.

However, this does not mean that people are “addicted” to their phones.  In fact, another statistic shows us that about one third of adults from time to time need to turn off their phones just to get a break from all of the texting and calling.

The complete study shows the difference between smartphone users and regular cell phone users in how the users interact with their phones as well as how different demographics use their phones.

Conclusions in the study show that the most common activities for both kinds of phones are sending/receiving texts, and taking/sending photos. Other common tasks include sending/receiving e-mail, accessing the internet, playing games, and downloading apps.
