The FCC wireless communication report is out and what does it tell us? People under 30 hate landline phones. In fact, 51% of adults between 25-29 pledge complete loyalty to their cellphones.

From the report:

For adults aged 25-29, more than half (51.3 percent) lived in households with wireless-only telephones, which is the first time that wireless-only households have exceeded landline households in any of the age ranges examined. For adults aged 18-24 years or 30-34 years, approximately 40 percent lived in households with wireless-only telephones.

And despite what Lenny Kravitz might have you thinking, the landline phone is not poised to make a comeback. [FCC via Ars Technica]
