Talking on the phone and communicating with someone at any moment has never been easier. We can grab our cell phones and call or text while waiting at a doctor’s office or when sitting in an airport. Cell phones have become a way life and are now considered a necessity to many people. Many people use them for everyday life and others for business. In the beginning, cell phones were considered a luxury and only the affluent could afford them, but today they are more prevalent than home phone lines.
When cell phones first came out they were called car phones and they came in a bag and had to be plugged into the adapter in your car for them to work. Cell phones have advanced a tremendous amount in the last few years.
Cell phones can now take pictures, upload your e-mail, calculate a tip for a server in a restaurant and even scan items to see what they cost. There are not many people who do not have a cell phone because it is now a way of life. They are great to have when you are traveling in case something happens and you need someone. They are also great for making plans with friends and letting people know where you are.
Many cell phone users are now texting more than they are calling. Testing has become the number one way to communicate and it is getting even more advanced. Some cell phones have a feature that you can speak your message into you phone and it will configure the message in a text format. This is great to use when you are driving and can’t text. Advancement in cell phones has been rapid. From massive, clunky car phones to today’s sleek iPhone, there is no denying that mobile phones are changing the way we communicate.
