Cell phones

"In 1973 Dr. Martin Cooper made the first ever cell phone call" (Borth).


“The word cell phone is based off how the cell phone system divides areas into a set of hexagonal “cells” which contain towers in the center” (Kinder).

The Evolution of Cell Phone

Cell phones in school

"In a study of 625 teens 12% can have their phones all day in every class, 62% can have their phone but not in all classes, 24% go to schools with no phone policies, and the remaining 2% don’t go to school" (Lenhart).

Cell phone use

"Today 46% of American adults say they could not live without their cell phones. 15 years ago only 28.3% of people even owned a cell phone" (Lenhart).


"There are about 3 billion calls being made every day from cell phones in the US alone" (Lenhart).
