Is a Mobile Phone an Asset?

Years ago before the mobile phone was even thought of, we managed, and not everyone had a land line either. These days, right from young children up to pensioners, you are not considered cool if you don’t have one. I can think of many pros and cons for having one, so here are my thoughts.


1. In an emergency it is a very quick means of contact.

2. Tex-ting is cheap and quick if you need to ask someone something.

3. You can reach someone even if their land line is engaged.

4. If you are in a car, it’s a quick means of communication, as telephone boxes are now few and far between.

5. Parents are reassured of their children’s safety if they have a mobile phone.

6. If you are on Face-book, you can check your messages if you are not near a computer.


1. Some people use them in an unnecessary way in public places, ie on a train which can be irritating.

2. Sometimes it is nice to have your own space, and be unable to be contacted, but unless you turn it off, that won’t happen.

3. Some teenagers have been known to use the camera on their mobile to take pictures, or video acts of bullying or abusing people.

4. Mobile phones can be a bit addictive, and some people spend too much money on calls and texts.

My job depends on my mobile phone, as I receive and answer texts several times a day, and I am sure there are many other people in the same position. I have a pay as you go mobile, but it’s worth considering whether a monthly contract is more suitable, as you get a certain amount of free texts, and call time. I find my mobile phone an asset, and whoever invented them certainly did a good job.
