The book traces the impact of the cell phone from personal issues of loneliness and depression to the global concerns of the modern economy and the trans-national family. As the technology of social networking, the cell phone has become central to establishing and maintaining relationships in areas from religion to love. "The Cell Phone" presents the first detailed ethnography of the impact of this new technology through the exploration of the cell phone's role in everyday lives.
