Carphone Warehouse: I Just Called to Say I Love You

The nature of how people communicate has changed in the last twenty years in ways that no one could have predicted. So when it comes to a day like today, built around telling someone special exactly how you feel, there are now a multitude of public, private, digital and non-diital ways to do it. What may surprise you is that a poll conducted by The Carphone Warehouse has revealed that 53% of people use their mobile phone to say I love you on St. Valentine's Day.

The poll also revealed:

  • Only 2% of people favour a traditional love letter to say “I love you”
  • 20% of people have sent a saucy text to the wrong person
  • 89% of people would not break up with someone via text or in an email
  • Flowers are the most popular gift to buy online (36%) for a loved one on Valentine’s Day, with DVD’s and CD’s the next most popular online gifts
  • The gift people most covet is the iPad, with the iPhone and other smartphones following closely behind
Taking the last point to heart (pardon the pun), Carphone Warehouse have announced that they will be offering a FREE selected Pre Pay phone to anyone that buys the Nokia C7 on O2 Bill pay.
