A mobile phone, cell phone or hand phone, short for handheld, cellular or just call, phone or hand, can simply make and receive calls on a cellular signal network while the user is traveling within a licensed telephone service area while using the device. Most devices come with a rechargeable battery and a handset that contains the features of the mobile phone. The latest mobile phones are capable of using GPRS technology for fast and easy pairing and connectivity to various service providers. Newer handsets run on a microprocessor that processes the incoming data messages and then send them to the base unit via the Bluetooth or Wi-Fi connection.
In India, Bharti Airtel Mobile Phone Company and Idea Cellular are leading the market in terms of mobile phone adoption rate. Airtel and Idea Cellular are almost tied up together in the country. In fact, Idea Cellular has recently started offering prepaid mobile phones in partnership with Reliance Communications. This gives customers a choice of both companies’ services. In other words, one can get a prepaid contract from Idea Cellular and use the same handset for both Airtel and Idea Cellular which is an amazing offer indeed.
With this trend in the market, competition in the field of mobile phone market is also heating up as operators like Vodafone, T-Mobile, Three Mobile India, Tata Indicom, Virgin Mobile, Idea Cellular, O2 and Virgin are offering lucrative plans and schemes to customers. Each network provider is positioning their handsets in a specific part of the country and are giving customers a fair idea about their plans. But which one should you choose, the simple answer is the one which offers you the best value for your money and which has the best features. And since there is a fierce competition going on in this field, each network provider is offering its customers with some attractive benefits to lure them to avail their services.
If we talk in general terms then prepaid services or the ones that don’t have any long term benefits are known as sub-standard. Such kind of services can’t support the requirements of a metropolitan or a national area. Also, it can hardly support a single line and can only carry a single mobile phone connection. This kind of a mobile phone is best suited for a rural or a remote area and is available at a very minimal price but not many people can afford this kind of a plan.
However, if you are looking for some more options in this segment then you must opt for a complete mobile telephone system that provides you unlimited services like voice, data, text messaging and Internet connectivity among others. Though such services are offered by some companies that offer a whole package, they cost a lot more than what a single mobile phone connection can provide and it is definitely unwise to invest in such a case. In case you need more than just a single line for your home phone set then you must go for a whole house telecommunication system. The advantages of this kind of a mobile service is that there are multiple lines that support the connection of a large number of users at the same time.
Another important aspect of a complete cellular system is the ability of a single unit to pick up signals from other units of a same company even though it is located in a different geographic area. This is one of the biggest advantages of a mobile communication system over wired units. With a wired system, there is only a single coverage area and your callers will only be able to reach those within that area. But, in case your callers want to reach clients or customers outside your area, then a cellular system will allow you to cover them too.
