Glossary definition of Wireless phone

Wireless Phone is another name for a mobile phone.

The word 'wireless' refers to the fact that the phone is actually a small radio transceiver, which communicates with the mobile telephone network by transmitting and receiving radio signals through the air without using wires. Although the various types of mobile phone, cell (cellular) phones, and car phones are all wireless devices, the cordless phones used at home are not considered wireless, as their base units are connected by wires to the network.
