Some people think that the use of mobile phones should be restricted, while others think it’s not a good idea.

I think that there should definitely be some restrictions. First of all, pupils at schools should not be allowed to use their phones in class. Even answering a simple text can distract a pupil’s attention and it would take time to bring it back. Second, in places like hospitals and theaters it should be restricted as well. It is so annoying to hear someone’s phone ring when you’re trying to enjoy a play or lying in bed in pain. People should be more considerate.

At the same time there’re people who believe that mobile phones should be allowed to use everywhere. What if, they say, something happens to the people they care? Or else, what if they’re witnessing a crime taking place, like a robbery? They may take pictures or make a video that would later help the police to catch the criminals.

In my opinion these people have a point. Surely, having a mobile phone in an emergency may come in handy. Taking photos of a crime scene can indeed help the police. At the same time, I think that such situations almost never happen, whereas pupils use their phones almost every day in class just for fun; people answer their phones in theaters a lot to talk about mundane things that can wait. Besides, restricted usage doesn’t mean people can’t bring their phones with them. All it means is that people should keep their phones in silent mode and shouldn’t use them unless it’s an emergency of some sort. In this case, I think everyone would understand it.

In conclusion, I'd like to say that mobile phones have become an essential part of our lives. People should be respectful of one another and try not to use their phones in places where they’re not allowed.
