Nowadays,technology grows faster than ever before. Who can ever imagine the state of technologies after 10 years? Especially in the aspect of communication, there’s always a big change every year or time by time. It’s proven that 8 out of 10 people have cell phones.

If there's anything spectacular about human inventions in this millennium is the Cellphone. The invention of cellphone had made the world smaller. You can stay in touch with your dear ones or friends no matter how far they are living. It saves your time a lot. During the 90s people used to wait for days together to receive a letter from their people and even land phone was considered to be a luxury then. The sudden outburst of cellphone has changed the world dramatically.

Go back to 15 years, you had no cell phones, life was still joyful but, it took ages to hear from your loved ones who are far away. People used to solely rely on letters as only few were able to afford for telephones. The outburst of the cell phones had changed the scene dramatically. You can talk to any one at any time and that made the world very smaller. It's a great achievement and should applaud.

Cellphones have changed life, but what hasn't? Time is changing, the only thing you can do it hold onto the past and enjoy some in-person relationships.

Beware of gimmicks that will force you shell more money,without having any value to you in real life.A phone should give you range at any place and also safe for your family and friends.Do not buy anything with a show-off value at exorbitant price.

we must admit that since the invention of mobile phones, communication has become better and easier. There is less worries when our children go out late at night and also we get to be informed right away when there is an emergency.

I personally believe that cellphones are one of those worthwhile gadgets ever invented by man. It really does change our lives socially. Communication becomes faster and easier. We need not to wait for minutes, hours and even days just to reach out to someone or deliver a very important message. It does become disadvantageous when it is being used as modus operandi for harming people or to fool people. Honestly I only use cellphones for communication. There are some features of it that I do not actually use because I really don't know how it works! hahaha
