Ownership of mobile phones has risen dramatically in recent years despite the potentially harmful effects they may have on our health and society. Governments should introduce measures to restrict ownership of mobile phones to those who need them for their work.

It is believed that the existence of cellular
phone
technology
has created social, medical and technical problems for individuals and societies. I personally disagree with the thought, if people think that there are more disadvantages than the advantages of cell phones and the following essay will discuss
this
issue in details.
To begin
with, it is true that the development of mobile
phone
technology
has created some problems for human kinds.
Firstly
, many people believe that the wireless
phone
technology
has made people become more individualistic. In the most common case, many families are having communication problems these days, due to each member of the family are busy with their devices.
Secondly
, it has been reported that the wireless
technology
has some negative effects on our health. Many scientists believe that the
technology
has become one of the contributors to human's brain damage and trigger brain cancer as well.
Thirdly
, it has been reported that some people have been injured due the technical problems of the
phone
itself. There have been cases where the battery of the
phone
had exploded when it was used to make
phone
calls, and it caused serious injuries to the user. Despite all the social, medical and technical problems of mobile phones, I do believe that the existence of the device brings a lot of benefits for human beings. Mobile phones can be used to connect to a specific person, though the person might be travelling to other places. And
then
, with the various

functions
of mobile
phone
technology
nowadays, it can be used to send and received important emails.
Besides
that, with the chatting application that could be installed on the phones, it has made distance communication become cheaper. And
last
but not the least, the
phone
can
also
be used as a navigation system to find a new area or new address. In conclusion, it is true that handheld
phone
technology
has caused some problems for mankind, but I disagree with the opinion that the problem of these phones outweighs the benefits. I do believe that
mobile

the mobile phone
phone
has assisted the human being in various ways and it is the irresponsible act of humans themselves that has caused the problem.
