I spend ‘zero’ time on my mobile phone.
Cant stand the things, only use it when I break down etc

What a barrel o’ laughs I must be…

I use 95 minutes a year on my mobile phone, and only spend about $40 per year total.

That’s 9 cents a day, I spend. And 4 seconds a day I spend on that phone, average.

I never use my mobile for frivolous reasons such as smalltalk and boredom. Ever. Why would I even want to? Mobile phones still sound like landlines did back in 1880. It seems whoever is interested in truly communicating would not use a mobile phone, except out of necessity.

I’m probably good for about 30 minute a day. I’ve got a family plan so it’s cheap and free to call other mobiles. I hav eto pay to use my land line long distance.
My son now texts 1300–1500 per month. That’s something we didn’t have 5 years ago.

I have a cheap plan – 100 minutes or texts a month. I’ve never used more than 40.

Well certainly a whole lot more! I use about almost 1000 minutes a month and browse the web for a few hours a day on mine. I’m a heavy user.

On my work days I spend anywhere from 5 to 30 minutes a day on it, on my days off I sometimes don’t even turn the damn thing on.
