  9. 9. Disadvantages of mobile phone  Cost-With monthly costs starting at $40 for voice service, as of 2009, cell phone use is expensive. Added to that are the costs of the hardware, text messaging, roaming, and downloading.  Distraction-Cell phones can ring in the middle of movies, music concerts, plays and other areas where silence is required, such as libraries, bookstores and hospital rooms. This happens despite signs and verbal requests. In addition, the glow of cell phone screens from text messages can annoy and distract people in the darkness of a theater.  Driving-Cell phone use while operating a vehicle has caused so many accidents that five states had banned calls and 12 had prohibited text messaging, as of 2009.  Lack of Privacy-Because cell phones provide no audio feedback through the earpiece, some people talk much louder with cell phones than they do through land lines. This exposes the people around them to their conversations.  Health-Cell phones emit low levels of RF (radio frequency) radiation. Large amounts of this energy can heat and damage tissue, especially around the eyes and testicles, which do not have enough blood flow to carry away such heat.

Being away at school I still am able to keep in contact with my parents and grandparents although I am far away from them. Cell phones are a vital service in the human connection because people are able to have connections that the past decades never imaged. The cell phone is an incredible invention that has altered our lives forever.
