    The study for on 364 *MEN* not women. If they were all phone sex
    operators, then methinks India has a big problem.

    Again, your daughter doesn't qualify. These are men, not women. I'm
    assuming that men don't yack all day long on a cell phone.

    Incidentally, you're correct. I don't have any children (that I know
    about).

    In India? Googling...
    http://cellphones.about.com/b/a/257218.htm
    How would you like lifetime unlimited incoming calls for
    a one-time fee of $21.75. Or how about $30 for a handset
    and unlimited talk time for 2 years. That's the kind of deal
    cell phone users get in India, a booming market that outpaced
    China last month, adding 5.9 million new customers just last
    month.
    Well, maybe it is possible to have an unlimited plan in India and not
    be rich.

    >>and a

    I was thinking of one of the "battery booster" plug in contraptions.
    Yeah, it's possible to do a marathon cellular yack session with the
    appropriate plan and the appropriate technology.

    Are you sure this was not a joke?

    <<< What type of person yacks on the phone for 4+ hours per day? >>>

    How about an Indian employee of the outsourced US call center?
