Here are a few courtesy ideas to show others before dialing those digits or answering those rings.
If you are in an enclosed area, keep your voice down or keep off the phone altogether.
Get in the habit of checking to see that your phone is turned off, or on vibrate before going into the meeting, restaurant or theater.
Keep your phone out of sight while driving so you will not be tempted to make a call.
When on a cell phone, don’t talk louder than you would on a land line.
Keep all calls concise and to the point.
Eliminate phone calls that are solely made to showcase your cell.
