Iowa among top states in going cell-phone-only


WASHINGTON (KWWL) - A new federal study finds Oklahoma and Utah are leading the way in substituting cell phones for landlines. At least one in four households in those states are wireless-only.

Nebraska, Arkansas, Idaho and Iowa are close behind in the estimates released today by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

It's the first state-by-state estimate of how many households are replacing landlines with cell phones. It's based on 2007 data.

States with the smallest share of cell-only households, just one in 20, include Vermont, Connecticut, Delaware and South Dakota.
