Marketers seeking to reach consumers on their call phones via texts or other means enjoy one major advantage: Habit.
Americans check their phones an average of 144 times per day, and almost 88.6%% do so within the first 10 minutes of waking up in the morning, according to a study by Reviews.org.
Moreover, 75% check within five minutes of receiving a notification.

In general, 60% sleep with their cell phones, while 57% consider themselves addicted to them, 66% check them during meals and 75% in the bathroom.
On a positive safety note, only 27.10%, check their phones while driving, down from 41.30% last year.
Reviews.org surveyed 1,000 U.S. consumers.
