With increasing number of people, i.e almost all using mobile phones today, it is also necessary to follow all the etiquettes of using it, be it in a secluded place, an office or street. All users need to follow these basic principles or rules so as not to irritate others or make them feel inconvenient.
The 6 Ettiquettes Of Using Cell Phones Are:
1. When in doubt, always go out of the room / hall
When possible go outside or to another room to make your call if your call might disturb others. You can also use features such as text messaging answering services, call diversion and vibration alert,etc to receive important calls without disturbing others.
2. If you can’t turn it off, keep it on silent mode
If you need to keep your phone on for important calls, then turn it to silent or vibration mode. It’s the ringtone of a mobile phone in inappropriate places which annoys and irritates people the most.
3. When required turn your phone off and also check if it’s off.
There are some places where people should never talk on a mobile phone or send text messages and where the ringing of a cell phone is considered highly unacceptable. In these cases, turn your phone off and remember to check it’s off before you enter the venue.
4. Keep your conversations private
People’s sense of personal space varies in each situation. Making a call in a busy place may be okay, but talking loudly in a confined space like a lift or on a train tends to disturb people.
5. Speak softly
Always speak softly so as not to disturb others. People can hear you even if you speak in soft voice.
6. While sitting in a group
It is inappropriate to use your social apps like whatapp, facebook, etc while you are with a group of friend, colleagues or relatives. Avoid it unless it is necessary!
The above mentioned etiquettes and manners are some of them excluding the ones which go with common sense. So try to follow as much of them as possible so as not to make others feel uncomfortable.
