    They will not call it anything
    until you tell them it's left or right hand?

    I prefer "Mobile, Wireless, Communication Device utilising Radio Frequencies at 900MHz or 1800MHz".

    Let's call it "MWCDRF900/1800"

    I believe it is the way the base station divides the area of coverage into a certain number of cells. Thus the term 'cell phone'.

    Studied before, threw it back to my lecturer liaoz.

    Sounds good to me.......

    Imagine the M1, Singtel or Starhub and all the mobile retailers have to let all the customer know "So sir would you like to purchase a MWCDRF900, 1800 or 1900 series?

    "This is our latest MWCDRF900 series with built in BLUETOOTH and INFRA-RED technology. Now with 3rd Generation MWCDRF, we have included a new gadget in our MWCDRF......"........Keke.....
