This study investigates the pattern in using the mobiles phones amongst the elderly in Malaysia. 60 elderly from a state in Malaysia participated in this study. A set of questionnaire was given to the elderly where the pattern of using the mobile phones would be found. This study too, investigates the language use while using the mobile phones. The words or phrases used were identified and listed and therefore helped with the set up of a module for the elderly in using the mobile phones. Interview sessions were carried out to find out the Nature, number and balance of interaction (Normaliza Abd Rahim, 2005) while using the mobile phones. It is found that the elderly have high interactions in using the mobile phones. It is hoped that this study will help all the elderly in Malaysia in using the mobile phones to communicate with the world.
