Introduction

English Coursework 8123 8th March 2003 James Preece 11SJ "All mobile phones should be banned", to what extent do you agree with this statement. The argument about whether mobile phones should be banned is almost as controversial as the prices of some selected handsets.I feel that to answer the question you must consider all aspects of mobile phone use.You need to look at the benifits and disadvantages of mobile phones in today`s society. Mobile phone use in the last five years has been rapidly increasing. More people are using there mobile phones to keep in touch.Young people are buying them to keep in touch with friends,older people are buying them for extra security,buisnesses are using them for there employees and some people are buying them as fashion accessories. Many young people buy mobile phones so they can keep up with the trends of many of there friends. ...read more.

Middle

Some people whilst stealing phones,whether intentionally or not attack their victims causing injuries or deaths.One such story is of a young girl who was shot in the head by a thief who was trying to steal her mobile phone.Is it really nessasary to kill somebody for the sake of a mobile phone. Some other bad points of mobile phones are that they are intrusive,the continual ringing of someones phone in a public place,they are constantly upgraded, so you have to spend more money trying to keep up with the latest trends,there is no guarantee of coverage,the accessories cost a fortune with most of them not even adding to the phones overall peformance. For these reasons I feel that mobile phones should be banned as they are very expensive and sometimes useless and we will be able to walk down the road without worrying about getting mugged or attacked for a piece of plastic. ...read more.

Conclusion

Many of the rescuers use mobile phone to stay in contact during the rescue attempts,which they can use to relay information to each other Jim, however has mixed emotions he feels that if people do become lost they ring around in panic,wasting the phones battery,so the rescuers are unable to contact them should they need too.He also says that sometimes on mountainsides they are useless as the person walks into a black spot so they are unable to use them. Overall I think that a person should have a choice of whether they use a mobile phone or not. If a ban was imposed I do not see how it would be carried out as people would still continue to use there mobile phones the same as before. I think in the end it comes down to an individual persons human rights,you are allowed to communicate in anyway you see fit,be it by using a telephone or by sending a text meesage,it is the individual persons own choice which cannot be taken away. ...read more.
