Cellular phones

Cellular phones refer to wireless personal telephones such as mobile phones. As a cellular phone moves through space, each cell, or geographic area, through which it passes contains a base station with a radio transmitter, a receiver, an antenna, and a computer. The user’s calls are handled using radio waves with a unique set of frequencies that are assigned to each cell.
