Ever since the mid 1980s, cell phones have been quickly moving their way into our everyday lives, especially with the introduction of camera phones in the early part of the new millennium. As cell phones evolve they have more and more of an impact on our everyday lives and I want to just how much they are impacting. As with new technology in any other form, cell phones have changed greatly over their relatively short life spans. As these changes occur, so does the populations like and sometimes dislike for these new smart phones. One of the major problems occurring with cell phones in modern times is that people use them at inappropriate times, such as when they are checking out of a grocery store. Even though there are a couple negative aspects about cell phones, my research and my paper are going to mainly the benefits of cell phones in the United States of America. My research focuses on a couple of key areas in cell phone communication, such as the evolution of cell phones, text messaging, smart phones and other cell phone applications as well as my own research including a survey that I distributed to some of my classmates. The first cell phone was much different than what we have today. In 1984 the Motorola Dyna TAC8000X was released into the market (Associated Press, 2005). This phone was the first of its kind and was totally unlike anything that anybody in the United States had ever seen before. Due to its size and weight the TAC8000X has become known as the `brick`. The brick weighted two pounds and was an outstanding $3,995 when it was released (Associated Press). The TAC8000X took 12 years to get onto the market from the time that it was first thought about. The head of the design team for the brick got the orders to start designing the phone in 1972 (Associated Press). From the introduction of the brick in 1984 we go to 1992 when the first commercial text message was sent. The text message was sent by a man named Neil Papworth to a Richard Jarvis, who was attending a Christmas party in Newbury England, and read “Merry Christmas” (Shannon, 2007). The text message that was sent that night was not at all like the messages we send today. At that time cell phones were not built to type out individual letters, so Papworth sent his message using a computer keyboard (Shannon).Ever since that day in 1992 when Neil Papworth sent the first text message, the text message revolution has exploded. As more and more people get cell phones every year the number of text messages sent and received soars with them. In just the past year the number of cell phone subscriptions across the nation increased to 24.3 million, which is about 105 cell phones for every 100 people (Writer, 2008). At the end of last year there was an increase of 26 percent increase in text messages sent by cell phones from the previous year which ended up being 1,256 billion. Let me give you some figures from the Taipei Times about the number of text messages in the fourth quarter last year. There was a growth of 9 percent from just the previous quarter, with the average cell phone user sending 54.7 text messages during the quarter and 18.2 text messages per month (Writer). Now these numbers could be skewed either way because there are some people that do not use their cell phone for text messaging or they do not even have text messaging on their phone and on the other hand, there are people who send upwards of 50 text messages a day or more. Those are just some numbers and facts about text messaging and from those you can see just how much text messaging is impacting our everyday lives, but there also tests and research being done to see how cell phones and text messaging are improving society. On April 16th Samsung Mobile announced that through a survey focused on family texting habits, that text messaging is improving the parent-teen relationship. Some findings of the survey show that teens are teaching their parents how to text message, however teens are still text messaging more and they are far surpassing the amounts mentioned before. If you remember, on average during the last quarter of last year, the average cell phone subscriber sent 18.2 text messages per month (Writer, 2008). From Samsungs survey they found that teens are sending 455 text messages and receiving 467 per month (Business Wire, 2008). That is right around 15 text messages sent and 16 received every day. On the other hand, parents that do text message only send about 84 messages and receive 96 per month. Not only are parents learning to text message, but it is also helping the communication between them and their children. Out of all of the teenagers that participated in the survey (13-19 years old), 53 percent said that they think that their relationship with their parents have improved since their parents have started text messaging (Business Wire, 2008). Along with that, they found that 51 percent of parents agree that since they have started text messaging they have been their relationship with their teenager has improved. Cell Phone Applications Over the last couple of years, cell phne applications such as text messaging, gaming, music, banking, the internet, e-mail, global positioning system (GPS) and many others have been revolutionizing the cell phone as we know it. Since I already talked extensively about text messaging I will focus on the other applications and some new ones that not too many people know about. With the new world of smart phones, applications are nearly endless. Smart phones are phones that are offer PC like functions while still letting you be able to talk on them. These phones offer advanced versions of normal applications such as e-mail and other internet applications. They make it easier to access the internet by using advanced operating systems almost like windows for your phone. These smart phones include phones such as the IPhone, the blackberry, the Verizon Q and many others. One new cell phone application that I found really interesting was one by AllOne Mobile. This new application would let people access their personal health records on their cell phones and PDAs (McGee, 2008). At first I thought that this might be a bad idea, in case you lost your phone and somebody else found it and had access to your information. Then, when I read the article I found the benefits of this application. This application would allow you to get your records if something happened like you broke a bone or got sick when you were on vacation or on a business trip and you could get help right away with no trouble. They did not really mention anything about security but I would imagine that they will have a very advanced and in depth, security plan on this application.
