Most mobiles only used for voice calls and texting
According to a new survey by SNAPin Software, 60% of mobile phone users in the UK use their phones only for texting and making voice calls.

From the respondents who did use other features, 30% used the phone’s camera and sent photos, while only 12% used their mobile to send emails.

Sixty percent of the people surveyed said they were uninterested in using the more advanced features on their phone, while over 30 percent were worried about being charged extra.

Eighteen percent of respondents said they could not be bothered to study the user manual to learn how to use the phone’s features.

Only one percent of mobile phone users had ever blogged from their phone, while just three percent had used street navigation.

The survey suggests that manufacturers need to make phones simple and easy to use, while network operators need to simplify their charges.

The SNAPin survey was carried out by YouGov among 1961 adults, between 18th and 20th December 2007.
