The former make the working pretty easy as one can communicate from anywhere at any time!
The advent of cellular phones has come with many other advantages as well; instant call making facility has made life much easier than before. Personal safety, general convenience, and above all, staying connected with near and dear ones round-the-clock have made these accessories something to die for.
