Cell phones afford a set of distinctive advantages for gathering information on daily patterns of behavior, establishing relationships, maintaining contact, and providing professional expertise to participants in a wide array of programs, including intervention, treatment, and service. This paper presents new findings about innovative applications of cell phone technology in research on daily patterns of behavior with adolescent mothers, findings relative to feasibility and utility, and presents recommendations for the applicability of its use in early care and education.
