The effects of cell phones on society will always be a double edged sword. The debate is never ending. Both sides have compelling arguments. But although there are some disadvantages, when looking around, one of the first sights I see are people walking with one hand up to their ear, like an evidence that cell phones have become important in our daily life. One effect of cell phones on society is availability to keep in touch with family, friends or business partners almost in every place and every time. You do not have to wait until evening, when you will be at home, or find a telephone boxes to call some friend or family member, if you have to tell them something important. Moreover – cell phones are the perfect way to stay connected with others in the event of emergency. They provide us with a sense of security. In the event of emergency or loss cell phone can allow others to connect with you quickly and could possibly save your life. If you feel insecure or something has happened to you or to a person next to you, you can call to get help.
For instance, most of Americans (about 74%) who use cell phones say they have used their mobile device in a critical situation and gained valuable help. Besides that today cell phones are more and more easily to use. They are capable of not only receiving and making phone calls, but taking, sending and receiving photos, sending data, you can use the Internet to check your e-mail, a calendar to plan your time, an alarm clock or a calculator. In short – nowadays cell phones are useful in different daily situations. But all opinions could never be the same. Some people believe that cell phones influence us negative. They say – health problems are one of the results of owing a cell phone. That is because of the negative radiation, what they have, when the phone is in your pocket or next to you.
However scientists still have not proved the badness of radiation. As another effect they mention are enormous bills. Because usually when you talk you do not pay attention, how long have you been talking and how much does it costs. About 36% of cell owners say they have been shocked from time to time by the size of their bills. To sum up I would like to say, that probably the money you spend to pay for bills is less valuable than our lives you could safe in case of emergency, if you have a cell phone. Personally I think cell phones causes great effects on society and they are one of the best inventions ever. Who knows how improved are they going to be tomorrow.
