Cellphone etiquette goes beyond simply keeping your conversations short and voice level to a minimum.手机礼仪不仅仅是保持通话的简短和音量的适度。
"Being mindful of your phone and of others might seem like the obvious thing to do, but the ubiquity of smartphones has caused some less-than-courteous practices to spring up," says Anthony Scarsella, Gazelle chief gadget officer.“
1.Avoid Sensitive Topics in Public
The person next to you at the airport really doesn't want to hear about the ups-and-downs of your dating life, and revealing the details of that big business deal in the works could get you fired if it's overheard by the wrong person. Either walk to a secluded location or let your caller know you'll call back when it's possible to talk in private.
2.You Don't Have to Google Everything
Don't be the person who whips out his or her phone to settle an argument by looking up a disputed fact on Google. While it's nice to finally be able to settle barstool debates in real time, avoid the urge to look everything up on your phone.
3.Stop Pulling Out Your Phone at Social Events
Avoid making calls at the gym, or, better yet, leave your phone in your locker. The same goes for social gathering, including the dinner table. Put your phone on silent and put it away for the duration of the meal.
4.Don't Leave a Voicemail
These days, no one likes receiving voicemails. The next time you can't reach someone by phone, try the Gentleman's Maneuver: Hang up before the beep and send a text instead, Scarsella says. Chances are you'll get a response more quickly.
5.No More Talking on the Toilet
Don't take your phone into the bathroom. A recent Gazelle survey of 1,000 iPhone users revealed that nearly 85% have used their phone while in the bathroom. Not only is this unsanitary and risky for your device, but it's also off-putting to callers to hear a telltale echo or a sudden rush of water.
