Kids' summer day calling increases by an hour

MVNO Disney Mobile released some interesting metrics from its recent "Cell and Tell" survey: 10- to 17-year-old mobile users spend an hour more on their mobiles during a summer day than they do on a school day. In the summer they spend some three hours and 45 minutes on their mobiles. About 44 percent of kids use texts as their primary form of communication. 52 percent have texted from a movie theater and 28 percent have texted from the dinner table. Within ten minutes of waking up, 26 percent of the kids polled say they send a text. Of course, 96 percent of respondents said they talk to their parents via mobile phone every day, while 20 percent talk to their parents at least five times a day.
