1. Don’t carry on with loud or long conversations in office. If you must speak, limit it to a few words spoken in a low voice, or move to another room.

2. You may think your ringtone is cool, others might not. Consider switching to a conventional tone and keeping it on minimum volume.

3. Better than volume level 3, switch your cell phone to “mute” and, instead of irritating everyone with your chosen ringtone, let it vibrate in your pocket.

4. Allowing yourself to be overheard while discussing private business on a cell, is at best seen as showing off and, at worse, gives away important personal data.

5. If you really have to make a long call, it is good manners to excuse yourself and do it in a non-quiet area.

6. When you want to change your ringtone, or test the volume level of the ringtone, do it at home, unless you want to risk your phone being snatched away or stamped on.

Hi Friends,

During office hrs. every staff member should keep there mobile phones on Silent & Vibration mode. and try to avoid personal calls during working hr. and if necessary to take the personal call then go aside from work area and finish it in 2 min.

1. Do not plug in your headset and listen to music while you are in office.

2. Do not talk while you are walking inside your office or in the corridor. You may wait for a while, finish your talking and then continue to walk.

3. Do not talk while you are in an overcrowded lift. Better to let the call go to missed calls and call back later after you are out of the lift.

Corporates should have a Mobile Zone where people are free to attend personal calls.

At other times, a company might standardize a ring tone and the volume at which the mobile rings....
