At present, the cell phone is likely to be on hand while university students are in class and studying. Thus, the main purpose of the present study is to investigate the usages pattern of cell phone in class room with the help of the evidences from Mathematical and Physical Science Faculty Students of Jahangirnagar University. The result shows that a cell phone is a very important tool for study as most of the respondents used their phones for study purposes. Cell phones are increasingly one of the most popular information access devices and multiuser functions which can be beneficial during study. This study suggests that mobile phone designers must take into account how young people use cell phones for educational purposes.
