Microsoft Survey: Half of Adults Think Calling in the Bathroom is OK

Cellphone behavior is more pervasive – and contentious – than you might think, according to the results of a Microsoft survey, conducted with partner Harris Interactive.

Among the findings is the amusing statistic that 61 percent of adults saw someone display bad cellphone behavior, but only 18 percent admitted they were guilty of such behavior.

Apparently, cellphone use in public restrooms is common: More than half of those surveyed ages 18–34 admitted to using their phone in a public restroom and thought it was acceptable behavior. Correspondingly, one in five of those aged 18-24 have dropped their phones in a toilet.

The Microsoft survey was conducted in honor of the launch of Windows Phone 7 – which the company hopes will help customers complete tasks in fewer steps, so they can get back to life – and out of the bathroom.
