In this article Christine Rosen makes it clear that the cell phones have become an integral part of our lives and a common asset that is owned by most individuals. She discusses the issues arising in the use of cell phones and deliberates what kind of rules and regulations and as well etiquette shall be acceptable in our use of the technology.
