Is it a mobile phone or a cell phone?

We thought that people in Australia only used the term mobile phone and that the term cell phone was only used in the USA. But from our research it seems that quite a few Australians refer to mobile phones as cell phones. That's okay by us, we don't mind if you want to buy a basic cell phone or buy a basic mobile phone, all that matters is that you've come to the right place to get the best basic phones available in Australia!
