We use our smartphones for just about everything but does your device come between you and your Valentine? A new survey by Asurion reveals some startling statistics about just how important our phones are to us that may or may not surprise you.
28% of individuals say their cellphone is more helpful than their sweetheart. Sure Google Maps can help me navigate around traffic to help me get to my destination faster and Yelp can be of assistance when traveling and I want to find great local spots but would I really admit that it’s more helpful than my husband? Perhaps but Siri or an app from the Google Play would have to start doing dishes, packing lunches, and letting the dog out when he insists on barking at phantoms in the yard in the middle of the night.
1/3 of participants have deleted messages their other half would find inappropriate. I admit it. I’ve been deleting the endless weather updates especially the inappropriate storm warnings that come 48 hours in advance of any weather incidents. Winter, I’m officially over you!
5% of survey respondents admitted to owning a phone their significant other doesn’t know about. I don’t know about you but I have enough trouble managing one phone and it’s content, let alone a secret phone!
15% of Americans said they have dumped an ex via text message in 2013. I suppose being dumped via text is like getting dumped during a phone call back in the day.
Jokes aside, we rely on our phones as important communication tools to help us stay in touch with loved ones so any loss, theft, or damage to a mobile device can feel absolutely devastating. Maintaining relationships with friends, family, and your sweetheart means maintaining your mobile device. Running updates, syncing it to back up data, and investing in technology protection service from a company like Asurion ensures that in the event that something happens, you’ll never be out of touch with your loved ones for too long.
Asurion provides rapid mobile device replacement in the event of loss, theft, damage or post-warranty malfunction.
