The ability to communicate is important in today's mobile society. One communication option is a mobile phone. Having a mobile phone, also known as cell phone, offers you different features. Some features include storage capabilities, a camera and its small size.

These, and others, are some reasons why a mobile phone is good to have. Before you buy one, you should decide how you will use it so you can make a good investment.


Having a mobile phone can help in emergency situations. You may not have access to a landline telephone or another person's mobile phone. Types of emergencies can range from severe storms to car breakdowns to snow drifts. If you want a mobile phone only for emergencies, purchasing a prepaid mobile phone would be the way to go.

Replace landline telephone

You can use a mobile phone as a replacement for a landline phone. This option can save you money. Before you explore this option, though, compare how much you can save when you switch landline-phone usage to mobile phone usage. Choose a phone plan that matches your needs and budget.


A mobile phone can have personal or business uses. This allows you to leave your office. You will not miss telephone calls. Having a business mobile phone means you will be able to contact your clients, vendors or suppliers. Make a list of features for your business mobile phone. One feature to have is decent sound quality, so you don't miss anything the person, on the other end of the call, says.

Legal evidence

The use of mobile phone records and pictures can help with legal cases, such as a car accident. If you have a mobile phone with a built-in camera and have an accident, you can snap a photo of the car damage. The photograph and police accident report can provide legal evidence.


When you spend time travelling to work or school, you can listen to your music. Some mobile phones use a media centre that gives you a way to download songs. Check how many songs you can have stored on your phone.

Text messaging

A good reason to have a mobile phone involves sending text messages. Text messages act as short descriptions typed into your phone. You can send these messages when you are in a noisy environment, such as a nightclub. Find out if your mobile phone plan charges a different rate for texts as opposed to telephone calls.
