The bank found 82 percent of those surveyed access their bank accounts at least once a week. Thirty-one percent log in at least once a day.

But the study is full of other findings:

* 28 percent of respondents said they could do without their phone for about a week. In contrast, 24 percent said they would feel naked without it after 24 hours.

* 45 percent would be willing to give up alcohol to get their phone back. And 34 percent would give up chocolate (more men than women, however, would give up the chocolate).
