Ten years in prison doesn't sound too bad when you have such conveniences as satellite TV and DVD players. Now, Lowdham Grange prison in Nottingham, England is adding one more fringe benefit to their roster, the cellphone. Cellphones will most likely be installed in inmate quarters with the hopes of reducing the rate that criminals re-offend and return back to prison. Now there's no need to worry how the prisoners are smuggling their own home chargers in, ok?
