Youngsters feel lost without their phones | BPS

Young people often feel lost without their mobile phones, with many finding the prospect of going without their handset unbearable. This is according to a new study funded by the Economic and Social Research Council, which found 97.8 per cent of first-year students at five English universities own such a device, with 83.2 per cent of those questioned claiming their phone would be the item they missed the most if they were denied access to it.
