Cell Phone Uses and Abuses

Updated on June 15, 2011

The Cell

Cell phone texting and sex texting is increasing exponentially. It was not very long ago that technology made it possible to connect with a person at anytime and in any place. This technology allows people to go from one extreme to another. For instance a person with a business may need an avenue for constant communication. On the other hand teenager may need a constant connection with their friends to keep up with the latest news. However, there are some extremes in both scenarios.

The Businessperson believes he or she is the only person in the world when they are transacting some sort of business arrangement. They often can be rude and obnoxious during their call in public places.

The teenagers conversing with there friends can talk for what seems like an eternity without interruption. The printed and visual news is complete with these and other scenarios indicating the level of uses abuses contributed to the ever-present cell phone.

Recently a woman was ejected from a metro train for talking continuously for sixteen hours in an area mark “quiet zone” The reason for this particular zone is for those who want to read or contemplate business operations or just rest from the frantic pace of daily activity. Prior to that a metro link crashed because the operator was texting while operating the train. Celebrates in sports, entertainment and government have been exposed for their sexting activities. I have included two videos with this hub to bring attention to something that is escalating out of control on a daily basis. It appears that the cell phone is now an added appendage similar to an arm or leg.

Have we become so attached to this device of communication that we are unable put it down? Stephen King has a book out titled “The Cell” he is a very descriptive writer and he alludes to certain scenarios concerning the use of a cell phone. The telephone carries have a variety of cell phone plans and phones to choose from.

There is Blueberry phones, smartphones and iphones for your calling pleasure. The possibility exists that some serious brain damage may occur with prolonged cell phone use. This information if true will not become apparent until people are hospitalize for unknown problem. Remember how it was with the tobacco companies and their denial?

      I read this 2 years ago. I came back to refresh my memory.

      What worries me about cell phone these days, is that there is too much radiation around us and we are not taking much notice.

      platinumOwl4, Cell phones seem to have invaded almost all aspects of modern life. An abuse which is troubling is talking on the cell phone while driving, especially when making a turn: yikes! Cell phones have valuable uses, especially for emergencies, but they also can be distracting, especially in areas where signs forbid their use.

      Thank you for highlighting the double-edged sword of cell phones.

      Appreciatively, Stessily

      I do think cell phones are a useful invention. I remember trying to deal with an emergency before they existed--not too pleasant. But they have also brought a different type of stress into the world and many abuse them, to the irritation and harm of others. These are good reminders to use cell phones wisely. Thanks!

      I enjoyed reading your article on Cell phone abuses. It is scary to me the number of people I see testing and holding the steering wheel in my part of Texas.

      Fascinating. Amazing how people are with instant messaging. Some people just can't wait for a message.

      Hello Hyphenbird,

      It is not only becoming an appendage but the people are really becoming inconsiderate.It is as if we are technology wise but people ignorant.

      People seem to love their cell phones like oxygen. Once I was in a meeting with a minister and he was praying and his cell phone rang. He interrupted the prayer (no Amen or anything) and answered the phone. I sat there in shock a minute or so then got up and left. He never mentioned the incident. The attachment to these things is just crazy.
