Idaho Leads USA In Going Wireless

More than half of Idahoans live wirelessly, preferring cellular phones to landlines, the Washington Post reports. Data collected by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention show that Idaho is the only state where a majority of residents use only cellular phones—52.3 percent, according to the study. States that also scored high in terms of the percentage of residents exclusively using cellular phones include Arkansas, Mississippi and Utah, which join Idaho in having 45 percent or more of residents relying on cell service. They're also some of the states with the lowest per capita income/Harrison Berry, Boise Weekly. More here.

Question: Am I the only one in Huckleberry Land that still has land lines (as well as cell phones)?
