Abstract: The purpose of this study was a pilot test to increase our understanding of known cell phone users and their likelihood of inclusion in current RDD sample frame. Four main concerns were identified:

1. Estimate cell phone users’ willingness to participate in surveys.
2. Quantify the extent to which cell phone users may not be included in regular RDD sample frames.
3. Quantify the extent to which cell phone users are reachable using landlines.
4. Identify the characteristics of cell phone users who may not be reachable using traditional landlines.

The study design focused more on what could reasonably be done within the parameters of a cell-phone conversation with the risks of disconnects, static and unknown response rates instead of a comprehensive study of users characteristics and behaviors. At the same time, the data collection methodology had to stay within the guidelines of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, which prohibits unsolicited calls to cell phones under certain guidelines.

A random sample of known cell phone numbers were selected from Maryland, New York and California where only dedicated to wireless services exchanges are assigned. A short three minute paper script survey was used for a target of 200 completes. Following state laws and the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, the sample was hand dialed by interviewers and a paper script was used for data collection.

Abstract: Mobile phone use and the scope of social perspective: Why and how mobile phone use correlates with social trust?

The previous findings on the relationship between mobile phone use and social trust are at best mixed. Some studies posit that perpetual contacts with intimate and thus homogeneous others make the boundary between ingroups and outgroups salient and undermine trust on unknown strangers, while others find positive effect on social trust. Why so? One of the possibilities is that mobile phone use does not have direct effect on social trust but have indirect or interactive effects in the relationship with other variables. For example mobile phone use might have effects on the quality and quantity of personal networks of the users and these variables might in turn have effects on social trust. Another possible cause is the deficiency of the scale of social trust. Many of the typical scales of social trust assumes “the default level of trust on general others” and ask the extent to which the respondents trust on “most people”. However, the cognitively represented “most people” can systematically vary across respondents along with their characteristics. This deficiency of social trust scale makes it difficult to disentangle the level of social trust and the variance of assumed “most people”. Because mobile phone use takes place with interpersonal communication, it might have some effect on the scope of assumed “most people”. For example, based on the previous findings that mobile phone texting increases the homogeneity of personal networks among youth (Kobayashi & Ikeda, 2007), it may be possible that the heavy use of mobile phone texting among peers limit the scope of “most people” to intimate friends, which makes the level of trust seemingly high. On the basis of these concern, using a nationally representative survey data of Japanese youth(8 to 18 yrs old; n=1002, RR=59%), I will present some findings about how mobile phone texting can correlate with social trust through limiting the scope of general others (“most people” in social trust scale) into narrower circles.

Abstract: This study explores whether the physical sensation of holding a mobile phone activates mental concepts associated with its use. Based on an embodied cognition perspective, we conducted an experiment in which 98 participants held an object in their hand while completing multiple assessments of concept activation. The held object was the participant’s mobile phone, a wooden mobile phone mockup, or a golf ball. Results showed that participants holding the golf ball were more likely to evaluate an ambiguous interaction in nondescript terms than were participants holding the mobile phone-type items. These results are described in terms of an embodied perspective on the increasingly physical nature of interactions with media.
