Samsung recently conducted a survey in eight cities across the U.S. that revealed that not only do a majority of cell phone users text message, but that they're doing it everywhere.
According to a national survey by Samsung Mobile, a majority of Americans (73%) are using mobile phones to stay connected via text, email or to update their social networking sites, and 64 percent of them appreciate that they can get in touch with their friends without having to actually talk to them on the phone. With access to text, email, Instant Messaging and social networking sites, mobile phones keep users connected more easily. Perhaps this is why those who actually use their phones to do this say they can reach their contacts more quickly (61%) and stay in touch on a more regular basis (60%). Nearly half of people surveyed in the eight cities agree that text messaging has made their daily lives less complex.
