What type of coverage do you need?

National Cell Phone Courtesy Month was created by Jacqueline Whitmore, one of the nation’s leading experts on etiquette and protocol. She founded this event with the intent to encourage the increasing careless cellphone users to be more respectful of their surroundings by using simple cellphone etiquette principles.

  • Be all there – If you are in a meeting, performance, or having an important conversation with someone, let calls go to voicemail.
  • Keep it private – Be aware of who is around you. Don’t discuss private or confidential information in public. You never know who is around you, and you can make whoever is around uncomfortable by the information that they are hearing.
  • Keep your cool – Don’t display anger during a call if you are in public. If you know your call is going to be emotional, wait until you are somewhere private to take it.
  • Use Silent/Vibrate – Use the silent or vibrate feature when you are in public places such as meetings, schools, restaurants, theatres or sporting events. Having your phone’s ringer on will disrupt those who are around you.
  • Avoid “Cell Yell”- Remember to use your regular speaking tone when on your cell phone. People tend to yell when speaking into their cellphones and do not realize how distracting it is to others.
  • Follow the rules-Places such as hospitals, airplanes, and theatres prohibit cell phone use. Follow the instructions and be respectful of their wishes.
  • Excuse yourself – If you are expecting a call that can’t be postponed, tell your friends ahead of time and excuse yourself when you receive the call. The people who you are with should take priority over any call you make or receive.
  • Send a message – Use text messaging to send a message if you must reply. This is a quick and easy way to communicate without having to actually get on your cell phone and talk.
  • Watch and listen discreetly- New videos and music are always coming out. Make sure you adjust your volume if you’re going to be listening to these in public areas. Earphones are a great way to minimize distracting and being respectful of others.
  • Be a good Samaritan- Use your cellphone to help others. According to the CTIA, more than 224,000 calls are made a day to 911 and other emergency numbers. Use your cellphone to report crimes or emergencies.
  • Focus on driving-Do not make or answer calls while driving your vehicle. Place calls when you are not moving.
  • Spread the word – Tell your friends and family about cellphone manners!
