Main outcome of study (acc. to author)

Neither GSM frequency nor daily duration of mobile phone use was found to be associated with quality of sleep. Reduced quality of sleep was correlated with a higher number of unexplained somatic complaints as well as with subjective stress. Therefore, this aspect should be taken into account when evaluating quality of sleep in environmental studies.
