This study examined the relationship between sustainability of mobile phone users and work-life balance. Twenty-seven interviews were performed on managerial level mobile phone owners over the duration of a month and half. The study extends Clark's  original Border theory that fails to mention how mobile phones (or indeed any other information and communication technology) influence the borders between the two domains. This study found technology has a definitive impact with separate users groups emerging from the data; border-extenders, border-adapters and border-enforcers.
