Question: There is a [widespread] trend among the youth with mobile phones; they fill them with objectionable content – such as songs and music, as well as prohibited pictures.

So what is your advice to the likes of these [youth], and may Allaah bless you?

Response: Regarding them, if they are [of an] old[er age], then they must fear Allaah, and repent to Him from this behaviour; and they must remove this [prohibited] content and corruptive thoughts and ideas from their mobile phones and this is [just idle] amusement and play.

And if they are young [in age], then their guardians must protect them from this [prohibited material] and prevent them from this harmful vain amusement, and from this behaviour which will prove harmful to them in the future.
