Technology is a manner of accomplishing a task using technical methods or knowledge, and one of the discoveries through technology is the Cellular Phone. Cellular Phone is a device that can make and receive telephone calls over a radio link while moving around a wide geographic area. It does so by connecting to a cellular network provided by a mobile phone operator, allowing access to the public telephone is used only within the short range of a single, private base station.
In addition, modern mobile phones (also known as a cellular phone, cell phone and a hand phone) also support a wide variety of other services such as text messaging, MMS, e-mail, Internet access, short-range wireless communications (infrared, Bluetooth), business applications, gaming, and photography. Mobile phones that offer these and more general computing capabilities are referred to as smartphones. All mobile phones have a number of features in common, but manufactures also try to differentiate their own products by implementing additional functions to make them more attractive to consumers. To our modern technology, cellular phones allowed re-use of frequencies many times in small adjacent areas covered by relatively low powered transmitters, made widespread adoption of mobile telephones economically feasible. The advances in mobile telephony can be traced in successive generations from early “OG” 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). Although it gives us convenient way of communication, this would still be given much attention for the pressing problems it caused to the people especially to the students. But its occurrence and severity depends on how people would handle their lives and their choices of taking or not the risk that the cellular telephone could give. We, the researches choose to have this topic to educate and make people aware of this alarming problems facing by the society.
