Prison gives new meaning to cell phone
This sounds crazy as most jails around the world have a huge problem with inmates smuggling in cell phones and organizing crimes from the inside, but according to The Inquirer, a British prison will be providing their iinmates with the use of a mobile phone within their cells.
"The idea is justified on the grounds that prisoners normally have to queue for ages to use the public telephones. If they have their own phones they can call loved ones at times of need. They'll have to pay for the airtime, though."
