have poop on them.
At any rate, "IT in the Toilet" says that 74 percent of men, and 76 percent (yes, a higher percentage) of the fairer sex say they've used their cell phones in the bathroom. 63 percent report they have answered a phone call, while 41 percent have initiated a phone call.
67 percent have read a text, and 38 percent have surfed the Internet. While more women than men report having used their mobile phones in the bathroom, more men, 30 percent, report that they don't go to the bathroom without their mobile phones, vs. 20 percent of women.
iPhone users are the "daintiest." Only 77 percent of iPhone users report using their phones in the bathroom, while 87 percent of Android users have done so. BlackBerry users are in the middle at 84 percent.
That said, BlackBerry users are more likely to answer a call while indisposed, with 75 percent of them reporting to have done so, vs. 67 percent of Android and 60 percent of iPhone users. However, Droid and iPhone users are more likely to browse a social network or use an app than their BlackBerry colleagues (most likely reflecting the ease of use of modern smartphone platforms vs. the older BlackBerry OS).
The "IT in the Toilet" study was done in Oct. 2011 by a new integrated marketing agency, 11mark. The company surveyed 1,000 Americans with mobile phones online. The full (and free) report can be downloaded at http://www.11mark.com/IT-in-the-Toilet.
