A Microsoft funded survey has revealed Aussies think it’s acceptable to chat on the phone whilst on the toilet…

According to the survey results completed by 2500 people across Australia, China, India, Japan and Taiwan; one in two Australians admitted to using their mobile phone while on the toilet and a quarter of men think it would be fine to propose to their loved one via the mobile.

80 percent also had no problem using their phone whilst at a restaurant or during a meal. 62 percent use their phone whilst driving.

The survey also examined how people use mobile phones in their personal lives, with those living in Melbourne more likely to go through their partner’s text messages and call lists than those living in Sydney.

Married women were also more likely to check their partner’s phones than married men, while 30 per cent of people admitted to using their mobiles to flirt with someone other than their spouse or partner.

“Other than showing some of the more unconventional uses of phones, these results show how entrenched in all aspects of our lives mobile phones have become,” Microsoft director of mobile communications business Grace Kerrison said in a statement.
