Abstract:
The popularity of cell phones in recent years and the advancement it has made in technology is remarkable. It has known a sort of necessity in everyone’s life. It connects people wirelessly to public switched telephone networks. The advances in mobile telephony can be traced in successive generations from the early "0G" services like MTS and its successor Improved Mobile Telephone Service, to first generation (1G) analog cellular network, second generation (2G) digital cellular networks, third generation (3G) broadband data services to the current state of the art, fourth generation (4G) native-IP networks. This paper focuses on the how the college students prioritize their cell phone choices. The results here in paper are based on the survey carried out on 100 students of this (UCP) university. The survey was done through several of questionnaires. These questionnaires comprised of all possible questions that may arise in college students’ choice. It dealt with styles, features, price, shape, make and other relevant factors. Several of the conclusions can be drawn from this survey and the way we have arranged it.

Introduction

History of cell phones:

The first use of cell phones was done by Swedish police in 1946. The made it functional by connecting a hand-held phone to the central telephone network. It was quite similar to the two way radio. From here the evolution of modern cellular phones began. Communication architecture of Hexagon Cells was created for cell phones by D.H. Ring; of Bell Labs 1947.An engineer from Bell labs discovered cell towers which had the capability to only transmit but to also receive the signals in three different directions. Before this discovery, the cell phones only worked in two directions and through an antenna.

Progress of Cell Phones

1st Generation cell phones:
The very first mobile phones are now referred to as first generation (1G) mobile phones. The first handheld phone to be released on the U.S market was the Motorola dynastic 8000X in 1983. Mobile phones started to gain popularity in the eighties with the introduction of cell phones that were based on cellular networks. 

Mobile phones were originally much larger than current ones, & they were initially designed for installation in vehicles only, which is why they were called the car phone. These chunky units were later converted for use as transportable...
