I've been trying but I can't see a pattern on this list of states ranked by percentage of people who have cell phones only. Iowa is number five on the list. I see a cluster of plains and rural states at the top and New England near the bottom--but I also see next door states on opposite ends like North Dakota high and South Dakota low.
As for Iowa we're 22.2 percent of households and 18.9 percent of adults cell-only. It's probably a lot higher here in the People's Republic, where I've been wireless only for 7 1/2 years and I don't know anyone under 30 with a land line.

Evangelicals have identified their movement with the culture war and with political conservatism. This will prove to be a very costly mistake. Evangelicals will increasingly be seen as a threat to cultural progress. Public leaders will consider us bad for America, bad for education, bad for children, and bad for society.
