By 

Abstract

The Australian Communications and Media Authority is urging parents to check mobile phones are kid safe before they go back to school. \u27With young people going back to school, mobile phones can be a great way for parents to keep in touch, but a few simple steps can help ensure the phone isn\u27t going to cause more problems than its solves,\u27 said Chris Chapman, ACMA Chairman. \u27It\u27s important that young people protect their mobile phone number and only give it to trusted friends and family. It\u27s also important that they don\u27t respond to text or calls from people they don?t know,\u27 Mr Chapman said
