Posted by Andrew.

If given a choice between sex and their mobile phones for a week, many Americans would rather keep the phone.

That is among findings of a survey commissioned by mobile GPS company TeleNav Inc. The survey finds smartphone users, especially iPhone users, are the most attached to their phones.

Survey finds one-third of Americans more willing to give up sex than their mobile phones. TeleNav survey examines Americans' attachment to mobile phones; finds iPhone users are least willing to let go of their devices. About 33 percent would rather give up sex, compared to 22 percent who would rather not use a toothbrush, 55 percent who would give up caffeine, and 74 percent who would give up alcohol.
