The only way we can get away from mobile phones, is to go to the outback where mobile coverage does not exist. In fact, we don't have to go to far out in the country for mobiles not to work. The other option, is turn your own off, but that wont stop you from hearing other people use theirs. These techologies are essential for the World's advancement, & for safety.

Although the mobile phones can be a source of annoyance we do have the option of turning them off. What annoys me most is when using public transport and there are always a group of teens on the back seat playing music on thier mobiles, usually different music at the same time, which I find really annoying. However the cellphone has helped to save many lives and means you can be pretty much accessible where ever you are if you so wish. I feel lost without my phone although tey were not around when i was little, well they were but they came in big cases and were way out of most peoples price range. I think some people need to learn when to switch the phone off and they can eb a really antisocial peice of technology but overall I think that the pro's outway the cons.
