Will the bad economy break us from our blackberries?

Posted by: AmberRoberts in: Financial Services -

People are cutting back financially wherever they can. It’s gotten so bad according to a survey released this week that people may even revise their cell phone plans and cut out mobile internet access.

Survey finds:
• About 19 million Americans, or one in five cell phone users with extras, have considered cutting back on extras or have already, while 41% of cell phone users said it is very likely or somewhat likely that they will cut down on extras if the economy worsens.

And it’s not just all talk…
• 8,740,000 Americans — that is 19% of consumers with a cell phone — report that they already have ‘discontinued cell phone service in the last six months because of actual job loss, fear of job loss, the recession, or any other related financial concerns.’
