HELSINKI, Finland – I’m not shy of the fact that I spend a lot of time on my Nokia E71 each month, but likewise I’m aware that the amount of time spent chatting to people has decreased drastically over the past couple of years as I increasingly communicate via SMS, email and more recently Twitter.
Last week, whilst sat in a hotel lobby in Helsinki, where I was meeting fellow Conversations writer James, I decided to check my call log in a moment of aching boredom. On checking I was met with a very surprising number – I’d spent over 24 hours speaking on my phone in the last 30 days. An entire day chatting in a month where I’d probably only spent just over six of those days sleeping, and two days eating. I asked James to check his (he likes to talk), and he was mildly alarmed to see he’d broken the 50-hour mark.
Have you ever checked how much you talk on your phone each month? All you have to do is go into your phone menu, select the log, and call duration. It should be set to the last 30 days. Check it out and share your stats and thoughts on whether your findings were surprising or what you expected.
