Mobile recycling could be especially beneficial to mums
6 December 2010 — 4:00 PM
Mothers with young children are likely to find they are blessed with more time should they recycle their mobile phone and invest in a smartphone.
Research by the network Three shows access to the internet through a handset could save parents 5.5 days each year.
Some 30 per cent of British mums do not know what a smartphone is and more than half miss out on the chance to get online because of their children.
However, with the help of a web-enabled mobile, many more may be in a position to send and receive emails and visit social networking sites – activities that are said by the company to be the most popular among those with kids.
Sylvia Chind, head of branded devices at Three, says: "I know first-hand just how helpful mobile internet can be for mums. It's a great time saver, entertainer and general helping hand when things get frantic."
Signing up to a deal with Three may be a particularly wise move, as the network has been voted the UK's best mobile broadband provider in two successive YouGov polls.
