# A pew internet poll in 2010 asked mobile phone users about how they

A Pew Internet poll in 2010 asked mobile phone users about how they used their mobile phones. One question asked whether or not during the past 30 days they had used their phone while in a store to call a friend or family member for advice about a purchase they were considering. The poll surveyed 1005 adults living in the United States by telephone. Of these, 478 responded that they had used their phone while in a store within the last 30 days to call a friend or family member for advice about a purchase they were considering.
