Q:

What are the advantages of having a cell phone?

A:

Advantages of having a cell phone include, but are not limited to, being able to be easily reached in an emergency and being able to make emergency calls when not near a home phone. Depending on the type of phone a person has, another benefit can be the convenience of having multiple apps and advanced functionality always in hand.

There are also safety concerns that come with having a cell phone, from questions about how the radiation affects people's brains, to how the lights disrupt sleep patterns. There is also the temptation to text or use other apps while driving, which can be very dangerous.
