BOSTON — A new study has found three out of 10 Boston residents would rather give up sex than their cell phones.

The study, commissioned by Samsung Mobile, was conducted by Kelton Research and included 300 cell phone users in Boston, reports MyFoxBoston's Jim Armstrong.

According to the survey, 38 percent of Boston women would put their sex lives on hold for a year to be able to use a mobile device. Only 19 percent of men would choose cell phones over sex.

The study also found the average Bostonian spends 20 percent of their day on the cell phone.

Fifty-six percent of women are more likely to keep a sentimental message on their phones than males at 30 percent.
