  • The table illustrates the various functions available on mobile phones, showing the percent of users that take advantage of these capabilities over three different years.
  • The most striking point is that with the exception of a slight fall in 2010, all owners use their mobile phone to telephone people. The second most common use is for text messaging, which steadily increased from just under three quarter of all users in 2006 to nearly four fifths of users in 2010.
  • Using the phone as a camera increased by 5 percent each year, rising to a peak of 76% in 2010. Playing games on the phone increased dramatically between 2006 and 2008, but then fell slightly in 2010 to end at 41%. The largest increase in the table is between 2008 and 2010 for those browsing the internet, but no data is given for 2006. Video and music use also increased, with video overtaking music in 2010.
  • In total, the functions used on mobiles all increased over the years with the exception of games and making calls.
