Landlines Are Being Dropped- 4 in 10 US Homes are Cellphone Only

Homes in the United States are dropping their landlines and opting for Cellphones only according to a recent CDC study. Four out of 10 households use cellphones only, which is twice the rate from just five years ago. Mike Stobbe of AP recently reported for ABC News, 4 in 10 US Homes Are Cellphone Only, Skip Landline.

The CDC survey released today, July 8, 2014, is based on in-person interviews in more than 21,000 homes during the last half of 2013. Some of the facts that the researchers found include:

  • Not all homes have phones: About 3 percent have no landline or cellphone.
  • About 9 percent have only landlines, and about 48 percent have both. Five years ago, 17 percent had only landlines, and about 60 percent had landlines and cellphones
  • Younger people rely more on cellphones: Nearly two-thirds of people in their late 20s live in households with only cellphones. Only 14 percent of people 65 and older use only cellphones.
  • The Midwest is the most wireless region: About 44 percent live in cellphone-only homes. The South and West were nearly as high. In the Northeast, 25 percent live in cellphone-only households.

Post-It Place Reviews Mobile1 – And Offers Giveaway

zBoost Mobile 1 boosts cell signals to new heights! (And a Giveaway)“ “I have always loved zBoost, so when contacted about their new mobile booster I was thrilled. I did receive a product sample to facilitate my review and a promotional item to thank me for testing out the zBoost Mobile 1 device. All opinions are mine and are in no way influenced by receipt of product.”

Out here in the country a cell service signal can at times be hard to come by…even here at the house. But if you go even further up in the mountains…it becomes near impossible. And we find ourselves in that predicament often. Like recently I went up and spent a day with some friends at their property even further up in the mountains than where I live and I knew from past experience that a cell signal was going to be non-existent. I was right. I thought Tate was going to have a coronary at first when he realized that he was going to have to go a full day without a signal.

But I also knew that should we absolutely need it, we could have one thanks to the zBoost Mobile 1. The device is great. Seriously, my phone would go from “No Service” to 3 bars in a second once it was placed in the cradle. It is easy to install, easy to use and does it’s job fabulously!!

This is what it looks like in the car.

You can mount the cradle where it is convenient for you.

Then you just place your phone in the cradle and let it work its magic.
