    The article is highly informative. It reflects the current trend of using Mobile Phone in Ghana specially in the a specific group in the population. According to the survey conducted its shows that mobile use by the student group is increasing every year in Ghana. Highest use is on sending and receiving calls followed by Social Networking. The survey form used is a standard one and survey results are presented in tabular form which was easy to follow. Overall I can conclude that the authors are successful in presenting the information intended to the reader.

      Thanks for your comments. However I think the research for for Informative purposes to show how Ghanaian University students use their mobile phones. One purpose of the research is to help Academic counselors focus their counselling of students on how best they can use their mobile phones and also to help mobile app developers know the general usage of mobile phones among students

    The article is informative especially to education psychologists who use the results from the data analysis to educate undergraduate students on proper use of mobile phone and the social media. The author's use of tables and graphs to illustrate further their data is commendable. The survey data collection used by the authors is the better methodology applicable in the circumstance. The references cited are more recent literature and hence, the article is relevant.

    QUESTION: The statement you made that more than 98% of Ghana population (24m of 24.97m) have active telecommunication network connection calls for questioning. Please clarify?

      Hello, Thanks for the comment and question.
      The current penetration of mobile phones in Ghana (That is the number of active registered numbers or chip lines) is about 24.97 According to the National Communications Authority (NCA ) and growing. Check This report is even as at 2012. It is due to the fact that most Ghanaian adults use more that one phone network. Hence one person may have two or three mobile phone numbers. This has raised the percentage of the of the mobile phone penetration. i believe a further research can be conducted to get the actual percentage of Ghanaians with mobile phone connection rather than just using the number of mobile connection vis-a-vis the population of Ghana. Thanks.

    Dear Author,
    Your article has put more light to the use of Mobile Phones among students in Institutions in Ghana. It is a nice study. But I noticed in table iv, that students do not pay much attention to the use of mobile phone to their ‘ work-related research and educationally related research’. They prefer much on social network. They needed to be encouraged and trained to always use their mobile phones to add more value to their academics.
    I therefore, suggest that your recommended should have included in this article, and you should have put up measures to accomplish. Anyway, this can be improve in the subsequence research work.
    Well done!
