The new 2002 research is similar to a study commissioned by LetsTalk in April 2000 (also conducted by Wirthlin). In the 2002 study, Americans were asked "In which of the following places do you find it generally acceptable to speak on your wireless (cellular) phone?"
Acceptable to talk on cell phone in car
Acceptable to talk on cell phone in restaurant
Acceptable to talk on cell phone while on public transportation
Acceptable to talk on cell phone in the supermarket:
Acceptable to talk on cell phone in bathroom
Acceptable to talk on cell phone while at the movies or in a theater
Acceptable to talk on cell phone while on school property including classrooms
"Despite an overall increase in cell phone usage, Americans appear to be much more cognizant of their cell phone etiquette," said Delly Tamer, president and CEO of LetsTalk. "It's important to recognize that Americans are beginning to self-police their wireless etiquette, especially as leaders evaluate the pros and cons of banning cell phone usage in public places."
Wirthlin Worldwide conducted the survey in August 2002 by interviewing a representative sample of 1,001 Americans age 18 or older.
