Mobile Phone Etiquette – Always Connected Isn’t Always Okay

SureCall’s Cell Phone Signal Boosters Keep You Connected No Matter What

Mobile phone etiquette is a burning issue these days and many are realizing that being always connected isn’t always okay. Here are some fairly common situations which are causing users to examine their mobile etiquette:

  • Mobile usage seems to take precedence over in-person conversations and physical interactions: The following statistics presented by a survey of more than 3,000 cellphone users by Pew Research Center’s American Trends Panel show this behavior is fairly widespread:
    • 90% respondents said their phone is frequently with them, 31% admitted they never turned their phone off and 45% said they rarely turned it off.
    • 89% even admitted that they themselves used their phone during their most recent time with others.
    • 86% recalled that someone else in the group used their cellphone during the gathering.
  • Privacy issues with mobile use in public places: Although 75% of users in the survey believed it is okay for people to use phones on public transit, you will agree that privacy is an issue. Conversations with clients, colleagues, friends and family in public places are easily overheard as well as annoying to individuals who are sharing the space.
  • Mobile usage is a distraction at gatherings and group events: Taking or making calls and checking text messages and emails disrupts or causes a distraction during professional and social gatherings. It is also seen as a sign of disrespect.
    • 82% of adults who were surveyed believed that when people use their phones in these settings, it frequently or occasionally hurts the conversation.
    • Only 38% of those surveyed said it was okay for others to use cellphones at restaurants.
    • A mere 5% thought it was generally okay to use a cellphone at a meeting.
  • Road safety: Using your cellphone while walking down the street or crossing a road can create potentially dangerous situations both for pedestrians and drivers.

5 Simple Mobile Etiquette Rules to Follow

  1. Don’t let your mobile phone control you.
  2. Speak softly in public.
  3. Turn off your phone (or keep it on silent mode) during a professional or social gathering.
  4. Move away if you need to make or take a call.
  5. Don’t use your phone while driving.
