A recent AT&T study found that women are catching up with men when it comes to cell phone usage, but men still spend more time on their cell phones than women.
I happen to think this study, which was part of a yearly Father's Day poll commissioned by AT&T, is at the very least skewed. Most of my female friends would stay on their cell phones all day if they could - while my father, boyfriend and male friends seem to only reach for the phone to plan, check in and check out.
According to the survey, which polled approximately 1,000 users, men average 458 minutes of monthly wireless phone usage, and women average 453 minutes. I think it's safe to assume the reason some people talk on the phone is related to personality type, not gender.
