Cell phone ownership among adults has since risen to 85%, based on the results of our most recent tracking survey of adults conducted in April 2009.
The Project is currently conducting a survey of teens and their parents and will be releasing the new figures in early 2010.
We went back to our databanks in light of the intriguing findings about adult mobile phone use in two of our recent reports, and to help lay the ground work for our current project on youth and mobile phones.
These can be used for protection, surveillance, and convenience.Girls and boys are equally likely to own a phone and there are no differences by race or ethnicity in phone ownership.However, there are small differences in phone ownership by socio-economic status; in families with the highest levels of income and education, teens are more likely than in less well-off families to have a cell phone.You also see an archive of all phone calls and text messages including the deleted ones.The online cloud control panel is a powerful system to analyse phone usage with tracking live location, tracking phone calls, tracking text messages and reviewing app usage history.
When we look specifically at teen cell phone owners (71% of the teen population in the 2008 survey), 94% of them have used their mobile phones to call friends and 76% have sent text messages.
