Survey Says Men Talk On Cell Phones More Than Women

Men talk more on mobile phones by a wide margin, according to a survey released Tuesday by Cingular Wireless.

According to the wireless operator, men talk on cell phones 35 percent more than women. That is more than double the margin reported in the same survey conducted last year, according to the company. This is the fifth consecutive survey in which men were the biggest wireless talkers, Cingular said.

"The results are undisputable, and after five consecutive years, men are definitely the top wireless talkers," Cingular spokeswoman Jennifer Bowcock said in a statement.

Specifically, the survey found that men use an average of 571 airtime minutes a month compared to 424 for women, the company said. The survey also found that men and women use wireless phones for different purposes. About 82 percent of women use their phones to talk to family and friends while only 62 percent of men use their phones for that purpose. However, men spend twice as much time using their cell phones for business than women, the survey found.

The survey also covered phone conversations on home phones and, while women continue to lead in that category, men are narrowing the gap. The survey questioned 1021 adults, according to Cingular.
