This article presents the major background to the study of fixed telephones, which gives us an appropriate framework for introducing us to study the cell phone and make some comparisons about the early adoption of both technologies, and its social effects. We discuss also some focuses suggested by scholars of communications and serving as a framework for analyzing this communication device. We offer special attention to the initial dystopian reactions stressed by some scholars, as a form of contrasting the euphoria of the industry and its publicity.
