Kursorin kännykkä- ja viestittelyetiketti

All items not related to food or tableware should be kept off the table: keys, small bags, sunglasses, and before everything from phones.
Don't text at the table!
If you are in a situation where you would politely apologize for going to the bathroom, you should leave politely even before you grab your phone.
Using the speaker
Tell me to the speaker that you have the speaker on. Do not use the speaker unless you are in an office meeting that someone is attending remotely. Warn the speaker that others are present and close the door. Keeping the speaker full when checking your voice messages is the pinnacle of annoyance.
Emails matter-of-factly
Don't send an email saying "Hello!" If you have nothing else to say in your email response other than “Thank you!”, Don’t send it. You just fill in the inbox of others.
Look at the person and not the cell phone!
Keep the phone away while you talk face to face. When talking to someone face to face, don’t blink your phone at the same time to see who’s trying to reach you.
Capital letters and attachments thoughtfully!
What not to do when writing an email: shout using all capital letters, use colored fonts and emoticons to attach to the message large attachments, forwards the message unless it is justified.
Phone hidden and not present
Respect the teacher and your parents for their behavior. Do not check your personal equipment during a lesson or meeting attended by your teacher, someone else in your parent who is trying to talk to you.
Answer matter-of-factly
Tell the phone your name. Don't just reply "Hi!" or "Haloooo?" When you answer another person's phone, say your name and whose phone the person called: "Hannel on Jennifer's phone."
Short voice messages
When you leave a voice message, say your full name and number. Tell us succinctly why you are calling. Repeat the first step and say goodbye. Keep the message very short.
Keep quiet at school
Keep your phone silent. If you leave your cell phone in your box / pipette, put it to silence. Especially if your ringtone is some sort of rocking rock song.
Phone while walking?
Track traffic and don't browse your phone. Lift your head to observe the crossings of the street so that you do not get under the car. Stay on the right side of the sidewalk and do not make sudden stops. Don’t stop texting or checking email as you cross the road!
Music only to your own ears
Don't play music too loud. If you use your player with earbuds, people near you will hear your playlist and it sounds like a little annoying fly acting like a DJ! When listening to music, it is good to consider others, especially in public spaces.
Calls and messages as personal information
Avoid public telephone conversations, especially about your secret matters. Do not talk on the phone in the waiting room, in the hotel check-out queue, in the restaurant, on the train or, God forbid, in the restroom. Do not share your personal messages or messages written by others.
Don't bother communicating
Follow this instant messaging label. Always ask if now is a good time to chat. Consider other people’s schedules and bedtime.
Avoid shouting into the phone
Don't shout on the phone. Even if you don’t hear the person at the other end of the line very well, that doesn’t mean he won’t hear you.
Keep boundaries in the media
Think carefully about what you write. Don’t write sensitive personal things on social media, especially if even your schoolmates can read your writing.
