For students, are Cellphones a necessity or a luxury?
Cellphones are a necessity for professionals who need to be contacted at all times. However, as students are supposed to spend most of their time studying, they have very little need for a cellphone. Moreover, rather than posing around with their paternal cellphones, students should be more concerned on building their careers which would allow them to walk around with cellphones for the rest of their lives !
