A person in Michigan is never more than 85 miles (137 km) from open Great Lakes water and is never more than 6 miles from a natural water source (from its Wikipedia entry). It can now boast becoming a mobile phone mecca.

The number of landlines in the state shrunk by about 1 million in 2005, to 5.7 million, while the number of cell phone subscribers grew by 2 million, to 6.6 million.

That means there are more people with mobile phones than landlines – apparently the first ever state in the US for this to happen. The 18-24 year olds demographic are leading this change but the adoption by their older relatives has also significantly impacted on this growth.
