It is rare to see someone without a mobile phone these days. Many people have come to accept that it has become a necessary part of their everyday life.

Employees and career people have come to see that a mobile phone can be used to create presentations and the like, while some download a lot of games so that they can relax while playing.
But of course, the mobile phone’s main purpose is to make calls.

- The person you want to contact in case of emergency – most people are aware of ICE, which stands for “in case of emergency”. These are the people that you want to contact when something has happened to you. While some are already familiar with what ICE stands for, there are those who still don’t know them. To make it easier, you can put a label instead. For example, instead of your husband’s name, you would put “My Husband” or instead of writing the name of your office in your contact list, you simply put “My Office”. This may seem simple, but just imagine when something untoward happens to you and if the emergency responder does not see ICE on your contact list, if you do not put the labels suggested above, they would not know who to contact.
