In the last decades, the means of communication witnessed tremendous developments. These means have clearly and concretely affected the lives of individuals. No one can deny the amount of services that telephones offer now as a modern communication means and all accompanying benefits. In addition to the Internet services available on the mobile phone, most of the mobile phones’ holders needs are facilitated via the Internet, such as e-mails and others. Recently, mobile phones have substituted computers for many people. The use of mobile phones as a means of communication has caused tremendous technological revolution. This has led the researcher to question the nature of the contracts between individuals and communication companies as well as their characteristics especially due to the emergence of problems between individuals and companies. With companies imposing their arbitrary conditions, the researcher is also investigating the role of the Telecommunications Authority in facing unfair conditions, the roles of Consumer Protection Associations and the judiciary in modifying these arbitrary conditions. The present research will answer these qustions after offering a definition of the contract of communication, its legal nature and its characteristics and effects.
