1. Introduction

In the present age, mobile phone is a particular device with hundreds of news functions created everyday. This issue, thereby, has changed the using purpose of people towards their cell phones. Besides mobile phone now can be considered as a pocket laptop which has the same features like a real computer. Hence, people tend to “stick” with it much more than they used to do. In the article published on March 2, 2009 Rick C.Hodgin reported that six in ten people (60%) of the world’s population has a cell phone subscription, increasing 45% after 7 years. Especially, the majority of this growing trend comes from poor and developing countries and Vietnam is not an exception. According to General Statistics Office of Vietnam, in 2010 Viet Nam had 142.4 million mobile subscribers and this figure is expected to grow up by 3.9 million in 2012. Unfortunately, even though it is a hot trend, there are not many articles were written about this and the qualities of those are not guaranteed, too. Most of them are advertisings to attract as much customers as possible. Rarely can we see an article about the real situation of using cell phone among scholars. “Nowadays, each student can own at least a mobile is not strange anymore. But what are the benefits when using them? How to control and balance them in daily life? And even fashionable ? Those questions are being concerned very much but still hard to answer” (Truong Thuy Phuong Thuy 2006).

Thus, this research is aimed to help readers understand the situation now, and to be more specific, we will focus on the main users of mobile phones _ students in general and FSD students in particular. The questions are all about the concerned : the time, purposes and negative impacts when using and owning mobile phones.
