It’s been a long time now since Martin Cooper developed the first cell phone in 1973. It took 10

years for the world could have commercial access to this technology. Until then, landlines had

the control of telecommunications.

Nowadays, many of the cellphone technology users, in some of the first world countries,

probably did not experience or can’t remember how the worldfunctioned without cellphones. It

has become so common that many children and young people must think that has always

existed and see it as something normal, natural, irreplaceable and absolutely necessary. They

can’t picture the world and its development in a life without cell phones.

For many young people and adults is a symbol of prestige to have a cell phone, but not any cell
phone,but one with the latest technologies. In fact, we’ve reached to a point in which we won’t
settle for less than an IPhone or maybe a Blackberry. The cell phone has become an integral
part of our existence, part of the identity of our lives. A new device in which we rely so much that
we think we could not live without. In most third world countries, the cell phone has become is a
social statusidentifier, a sign of wealth and good quality of live.
Cell phones have also become a source of anguish people did not have before. When

cell phones entered into our societies and to this day, we lost part of our own privacy.

Also some altered behavior arose from the use of cell phones.

For some people has become a permanent source of anxiety and other disorders.

Some havedeveloped Panic attacks derived from incoming calls, especially if the call

comes from their boss, or maybe a collections agent. Others have developed such

dependency to their cell that they enter in a terror state if they leave their homes without


Without their cell’s they feel like soldiers without a rifle in the middle of an ambush. Is

their best friend who they love spendtime with or to simply avoid interacting physically

with others. It is sometimes a perfect excuse.
interacting with people in their environment or simply to appear as a modern individual,

executive, and technologized.

Cell phones also generate some discomfort when "anyone" could locate one anytime

and anywhere. Of course, one could refuse to answer, but that is sometimes seen as adiscourtesy, and those who call you begins to ask themselves, why does he has a cell

phone if he is not going to get the calls.

At the speed that we live nowadays in modern life it is almost mandatory to use cell

phones. If you don’t have one you are incommunicado and almost for sure you will lose

job opportunities by not having the ability to communicate instantly.

Thenumber of cell lines significantly exceeded landlines. While the number of mobile
phones users arises, it dramatically decreases the traditional landline.
six out of ten people worldwide use mobile phones. This means that 60% of people on the

planet own a mobile handset. Taking into account that the population is close to the six billion

people, it follows that in the world in an instant,there are 3,600 million phones

Taking into account that people change their cell phones as an average every eight months, we

have that in one year the world economy moves around 5,600 million devices in terms of sales.

And this gives astronomical profits to manufacturing companies like Motorola, Ericsson, Nokia,

Sony, Samsung, and Siemens.

Now in environmental terms also generatesan astronomical problem with the issue of electronic

waste: plastic housings (enclosures), printed circuit boards (PCB so as to electronic

components and accessories), rechargeable Ni-Cd and lithium. (One-Cadmium Ni-Cd battery

has the ability to contaminate 600,000 liters of water).
