While its evolution dates back as far as 1921, break through begins in 1982 and today it has continued to advance unabatedly. This is the fate of Global System for Mobile Communication (GSM); a device in the hand that makes the world appears like a small place. It started with a one-way information medium within a defined distance but today it is a global phenomenon that seems unlimited. GSM at its recent era do not pretend to improve the voice communication experience only but provides access to global communication reality of information communication and sharing. These are achieved in the various social networks, search engines and data based, as well as internet and the likes.
