The first mobile call was made a little over 40 years ago. Since then, mobiles have evolved from the brick-like objects that were the luxury of businesspeople to an everyday device that we
rely on to manage our daily lives.
Today, 93% of UK adults personally own or use a mobile phone, according to Ofcom, and the latest YouGov research confirms around three-quarters of people own a smartphone.
If we are well and truly attached to our mobiles, are we protecting these items that clearly matter to us? YouGov estimates the total value of all handsets in the UK market at£7.5bn, with around £3bn of this being insured.
