6 Executive Summary In an effort to learn more about how adults use their cell phones and view the cell phone usage habits of others, in April 2010, AARP Research & Strategic Analysis fielded a short telephone survey among a nationally representative sample of 1,014 cell phone users ages 18 and older. Key Findings Whether shopping, traveling, or dining out, cell phone users reported answering their phones in a variety of settings. For example, nearly six in ten cell phone users said they answer their phones in restaurants, while more than half said they do so in store checkout lines, on public transportation, and in fast-food order lines. Another four in ten reported that they answer their cell phones in restrooms. Cell phone usage appears to be less common in concert halls, movie theaters, or places of worship, with less than one-fifth of cell phones users saying they answer their phone at live performances (such as at concerts or the theater), one in nine saying they do so at movie theaters, and only one in twenty saying they do so at religious services. More than four in ten cell phone users said they use their phone while driving, but only one in ten reported texting while driving. Nearly half of cell phone users said they oppose cell phone use on commercial airline flights, while four in ten said they favor allowing such use. Another twelve percent of cell phone users said they are not sure. Cell phone users have high levels of annoyance with the cell phone habits of others. Specifically, nine in ten reported that a ringing cell phone in a theater, library, or meeting is either very or mildly annoying to them, while slightly fewer said the same thing about someone talking loudly on a cell phone in public places. Additionally, roughly three-quarters of cell phone users reported that three situations are very annoying or mildly annoying to them: when someone texts while talking with them, when someone is driving and talking on a cell phone, and when someone interrupts a conversation to take a call. Conclusions Results from this survey suggest a generational divide in the cell phone usage habits and preferences of U.S. adults. Although cell phone users of all ages report answering their phones in a variety of venues, younger ones are more likely than older ones to say they answer their phones in all eight of the locations they were asked about. They are also more likely to report using their cell phones while driving and to say they text while driving. Additionally, younger cell phone users are more likely than older ones to report being not bothered or being only mildly annoyed when other individuals use their cell phones in public places, while driving, or for texting while conversing with them. In contrast, older cell phone users said that someone using their cell phone in each of the four scenarios they were asked about would be very annoying to them. Cell Phone Etiquette: An AARP Bulletin Poll 1

7 Background In April 2010, AARP Research & Strategic Analysis contracted with Social Science Research Solutions (SSRS) to field a telephone survey among a nationally representative sample of cell phone users ages 18 and older to learn more about how individuals use their cell phones and how they perceive the cell phone habits of others. In this survey, respondents were asked about locations where they may or may not answer their cell phones. They were also asked about their cell phone and texting habits while driving as well as whether they support or oppose the use of cell phones on commercial airline flights. Finally, they were asked about their own level of tolerance when others use their cell phones in a variety of settings. Detailed Findings 1 Locations Where Cell Phones are Answered As noted in Figure 1, nearly six in ten (59%) cell phone users said they answer their phones in restaurants, while more than half said they do so in store checkout lines (56%), on public transportation (55%), and in fast-food order lines (51%). Another four in ten (42%) reported that they answer their cell phones in restrooms. Less than one-fifth (17%) of cell phones users said they answer their phone at live performances (such as at concerts or the theater), one in nine (11%) do so at movie theaters, and only one in twenty (5%) do so at religious services.

Slightly more than half are women (51%) and slightly less than half are men (49%). Roughly seven in ten (69%) are white, non-hispanic; one in nine (11%) are black, non-hispanic; thirteen percent are Hispanic. Four in ten had a high school education (30%) or less (13%), while one-quarter (24%) had some college or technical training and roughly three in ten had a college (19%) or post-graduate education (10%). More than one-quarter (27%) have household incomes of less than $30,000 per year, while slightly less than one-fifth (15%) have household incomes of $30,000-$49,999 per year. Thirteen percent reported an annual household income of $50,000-$74,999, while roughly one-quarter (24%) reported an annual household income of $75,000 or more.

8 As noted in Table 1, cell phone users ages are more likely than those ages 50 and older to say they answer their phone in each of the eight locations they were asked about. Table 1 Locations Where Cell Phones are Answered By Age (n=604) 50+ (n=390) At movie theaters 15% 4% In restaurants 69% 45% At live performances (concerts, theater, etc.) 24% 6% At religious services 6% 3% In store checkout lines 64% 44% In fast-food order lines 60% 37% In restrooms 50% 32% On public transportation 68% 35% Notably, there are no gender differences in locations where cell phones are answered, but there are three sites where less affluent respondents are more likely than more affluent ones to report answering their phones: in restaurants (72% of those with annual household incomes of less than $25,000 vs. 59% of those with incomes between $25,000 and $49,000 and 58% of those with incomes of $75,000 or more), in store checkout lines (68% vs. 53% and 59%), and in movie theaters (18% vs. 9% and 9%). Phoning and Texting While Driving More than four in ten (44%) cell phone users said they use their phone while driving, but only one in ten (10%) reported texting while driving. Cell phone users ages are more likely than those ages 50 and older to say they use their cell phone while driving (53% vs. 29%). Additionally, while there are no gender differences in cell phone use while driving, less affluent respondents are less likely than their more affluent counterparts to report such use (33% vs. 46%, 50%, and 61%). As for texting while driving, cell phone users ages are more likely than those ages 50 and older to say they text while driving (16% vs. 1%). But, there are no gender or income differences in such behavior. Opinions about Cell Phone Use on Commercial Airline Flights Nearly half (46%) of cell phone users said they oppose cell phone use on commercial airline flights, while four in ten (40%) cell phone users said they favor allowing such use. Another twelve percent of cell phone users said they are not sure. While there are no age or gender differences in respondents opinions about allowing cell phone use on commercial airline flights, responses vary by income level. Specifically, cell phone users with annual household incomes of less than $25,000 or with incomes between $25,000 and $49,999 are more likely than those with incomes between $50,000 and $74,999 to say they oppose allowing cell phone use on commercial airlines (52% and 47% vs. 32%).

Specifically, nine in ten (90%) cell phone users reported that a ringing cell phone in a theater, library, or meeting is either very annoying (70%) or mildly annoying (20%) to them, while slightly fewer (85%) said someone talking loudly on a cell phone in public places is either very annoying (55%) or mildly annoying (30%) to them. Additionally, roughly three-quarters of cell phone users reported that three situations are very annoying or mildly annoying to them: when someone texts while talking with them (50% very annoying, 28% mildly annoying), when someone is driving and talking on a cell phone (51% very annoying, 25% mildly annoying), and when someone interrupts a conversation to take a call (37% very annoying, 38% mildly annoying).

They are more likely than those ages 50 and older to report that someone talking loudly on a cell phone in public places (33% vs. 26%) and someone texting while talking with them (32% vs. 22%) are mildly annoying to them. In contrast, cell phone users ages 50 and older are more likely than those ages to report that each of the five scenarios they were asked about are very annoying to them: someone talking loudly on a cell phone in public places (61% vs. 50%); someone interrupting a conversation to take a call (42% vs. 34%); a ringing cell phone in a theater, library, or meeting (75% vs. 66%); someone driving and talking on a cell phone (59% vs. 45%); and someone texting while talking with them (61% vs. 42%). As for gender differences in tolerance for others cell phone use, men are more likely than women to say that someone talking loudly on a cell phone in public places doesn t bother them (18% vs. 11%). In contrast, women are more likely than men to say they are very annoyed by the same situation: someone talking loudly on a cell phone in public places (59% vs. 50%). They are also more likely than men to be very annoyed by someone driving and talking on a cell phone (56% vs. 46%). Cell Phone Etiquette: An AARP Bulletin Poll 5

11 In terms of income differences, cell phone users with annual household incomes of less than $75,000 are more likely than those with incomes above that level to report that someone interrupting a conversation to take a call (26%, 23%, and 25% vs. 13%) or someone texting while talking to them (27%, 19%, and 20% vs. 11%) doesn t bother them. Moreover, cell phone users with annual household incomes of less than $25,000 are more likely than those with incomes of $75,000 or more to say a ringing cell phone in a theater, library, or meeting (14% vs. 5%) doesn t bother them. In contrast, cell phone users with incomes of $75,000 are more likely than their less affluent counterparts to report being very annoyed by a ringing cell phone in those situations (81% vs. 61%, 67%, and 71%).
