I'm not sure this is systematic/systemic evidence but...

Boost Mobile has had a campaign in the last year or so titled "Where you
at?".  This is mostly a pay-as-you-go/contractless mobile company and

I'd agree that it's probably one of the most prevalent (and relevant)
questions being asked on mobile phones.
