Abstract: We explore the distinctive characteristics of mobile telephone use among the elderly population. We analyze the last available European country-level data on individual use of mobile telephony and advanced mobile services. Results are interpreted in the light of the available knowledge in the field. As a result, we are able to propose an analytical explanation about the role that mobile telephony has in the elderly personal system of communication in a developed context like Europe.
