Children’s use of mobile phones


Understanding use of mobile by young people

The GSMA and NTT docomo’s Mobile Society Research Institute have partnered on an on-going research project to investigate children’s use of mobile services around the world.

To enable year-on-year comparisons, standard questions were posed to children and their parents, including:

  • Age of first mobile ownership
  • Reasons for getting a mobile phone
  • How they feel about their mobile phone
  • Parents’ concerns over their children’s use of mobile phones.
