It is predicted that by the year 2017, every wireless technology that was being developed around 2007-2011 would become quite common, and would be taken for granted later on, such as mobile e-mail, Wi-Fi systems, and Digital Broadcasting (Saunders, 2007:182-183). At the moment, everything that can be supported by the mobile phone is being explored, such as mobile internet, television, bill payments, and the like. In the future, these and more will be the norm, thus the need to exchange even more data in the network, such as personal information, photos, among others, as part of a community-built database (Cortizo et al.

With the introduction of Pay-by-Phone in the U.
