The biggest advantage is that everybody is at your beck and call you are at the beck and call of others. No matter how busy they are or how busy you are, they or you would give preference to the telephone call. You and others can reach out to each other in a jiffy. You are never out of touch with your family, your friends and relatives. Disadvantage, you are likely to be disturbed at any time, even while your are asleep peacefully. People think they have a right to disturb you just because they happen to have your number. You get so many promotional calls and you wonder why your service provider distribute your number so freely to others.

There are many pros and cons of using cell phones.
Based on the list, you can pick, whichever that is applicable for you....

Mobile phones are used for a variety of reasons including keeping in touch with family members, conducting business, or used in the event of an emergency. Some individuals keep multiple cell phones in some cases for legitimate reasons such as having one phone for business and another for personal use, though a second cell phone may also be used to covertly conduct an affair or illicit business transaction. Child predators are able to take advantage of cell phones to secretly communicate with children without the knowledge of their parents or teachers, which has raised concerns.

Organizations that aid victims of domestic violence offer a secret cell phone to potential victims. These devices are often old phones that are donated and refurbished to meet the victim's emergency needs. The victim can then have the phone handy when necessary and without the abuse ...more
