The importance of not using mobile phones when concentrating on something else has been highlighted by an £8,000 fine levied on Manchester United star Cristiano Ronaldo, who appears to enjoy using his mobile phone.
Ronaldo was fined after Sir Alex Ferguson caught him sending texts during training season, which goes against the new rules set out for mobile phone use by the club.
A source told ITV news: "A few of the players have been sneaking their mobile phones on to the training pitch to send the odd text message between sessions."
Non-footballing mobile phone users are still warned that there are certain times when phone use is not appropriate and could prove dangerous.
The Think! government campaign warns drivers that using a mobile phone while driving can result in a £60 fine and points added to their licence.
Those considering purchasing a new mobile phone should be aware that handsfree headsets are available from many distributors.
