"Complaints about cell-phone etiquette are legion. Travelers in particular are hostage to other people's cell phones," Richard Payne wrote in a Sudbury TownCrier column.

"People for some odd reason seem to feel the necessity for issuing a blow-by-blow commentary on their progress in getting on and off the plane.

"It continues until the plane takes off and resumes immediately the plane lands. It persists and repeats along the concourse and then on the bus."

Ten Commandments Of Cell Phone Etiquette
"There are some real abuses of wireless technology being perpetrated all around us, and the time has come to create some social order out of the cell phone chaos," Dan Briody wrote in his Wireless World column in InfoWorld.

"This is by no means an exhaustive list simply because as the technology evolves, new annoying traits will surely emerge. But commandments usually come in tens, so think of this as the first Ten Commandments of cell phone etiquette, with amendments to follow."

Where Are Your Wireless Manners?
In a CNN article subtitled, "As public unplugs, rudeness seems to be getting worse," Amy Cox warns: "The only thing advancing quicker than wireless innovation may be the rudeness of the people using the technology, experts say."

With more than 200 million cell phones in the U.S., inconsiderate cell phone habits are turning into an epidemic. A lack of basic mobile phone etiquette at the office, the dinner table, and in the car is frustrating Americans more than ever, according to research by online retailer LetsTalk.com.

"With the proliferation of cell phones in our society and the onslaught of new ways to use your cell phones, consumers are becoming increasingly confused about setting boundaries," says CEO Delly Tamer of LetsTalk.com, whose guidelines are based on comprehensive annual surveys on cell phone etiquette and behavior since 2000. Here's a summary.

  • When in doubt - mute.
  • Choose ringtones you won't regret.
  • Yak, don't yell.
  • When in earshot keep it short.
  • Don't text and drive.
  • Excuse yourself before taking the call.
  • Say please before they say cheese.
  • If it's an emergency, take the call.

Here's the full mobile phone etiquette guide.


Sprint Wireless Courtesy Report

Through its periodic cell phone etiquette quiz, wireless carrier Sprint offers an opportunity for you to know how well you mind your mobile manners, and provides cell phone courtesy tips.

In one annual Sprint Cell Phone Etiquette Online Quiz, 30 percent of the participants scored between 90 to 100 percent, 31 percent scored 80 to 89 percent, and 39 percent had between 0 to 69 percent of the answers correct.

"People aren't being rude intentionally; it's just that many don't realize the impact their mobile phone behavior has on those around them," said Sprint's etiquette spokesperson Jacqueline Whitmore.

Ms. Whitmore, founder and director of The Protocol School of Palm Beach, is the originator of Cell Phone Courtesy Month. Her book - Business Class: Etiquette Essentials for Success at Work - includes specific chapters on techno-etiquette.
