It's a big issue for political pollers, and they have some data:
"roughly half (47%) of U.S. adults whose only phone is a cellphone."
"in a recent national poll, 8% of people interviewed by cellphone in
California had a phone number from a state other than California.
Similarly, of the people called on a cellphone number associated with
California, 10% were interviewed in a different state."
So maybe 10% of all cell phones are primarly used in the "wrong" area?
