Mobile phone or cell phone?

We thought Australian people only used the term mobile phone and that the word cell phone was only used by Americans. However, our research shows that some Australians say cell phones rather than mobile phones. That’s okay by us, we don’t mind if you want to buy a kids cell phone or buy a kids mobile phone all that matters is that you’ve come to the right place to get the best phones for kids available in Australia!
