Never use a phone when entering a bathroom, as some things are meant to be private. No one cares to hear you doing your business. Regardless of why you are there, stay off the phone. No exceptions!

Don’t phone before 7:00 am and after 9:00 pm, unless in an emergency or an important overseas call. Also avoid calling people during mealtimes. This includes texting, though you would obviously not text for emergencies.

Ensure the number you have is correct. If you do disturb someone and it’s the wrong number then ‘please’ have the decency to say, “I’m so sorry! I have the wrong number!”.

Check your voice. It carries much more than just a tone. Remember: your listener cannot see you, so your phone-voice becomes your facial expressions, gestures, personality and character.

When someone answers the phone don’t be harsh and abrupt by telling them what you want first. This confuses them and makes them wonder who you are. And don’t say, “Who is this?” You phoned them, so introduce yourself and state who you are and what you want –-- politely! 

Give people a chance to answer their phone! They could be outside in their garden, knitting, baking, washing the car or at another end of the house. It's annoying when you stop doing something, go into the lounge to answer and just as it gets to your ear the caller hangs up.

Don’t spend an hour or hours chatting to someone. Don't waste people's time or disturb the household.

If you must carry on two conversations at once you should always excuse yourself from one and resume it later.

When talking on the phone in a public space, keep your voice at "indoor voice" level, or lower. Generally, people with good manners don't talk about potentially embarrassing private issues in public.

Avoid using the computer while on the phone unless it's part of customer services. It is extremely rude and unpleasant when someone makes you listen to a clacking keyboard.

Turn off your phone in films, don't text while pretending to pay attention to someone else, and never call during meals, or important ceremonies, where mobiles SHOULD be always switched off at all times.

Refrain from using your cell at check-out counters it is bad taste and horribly rude to talk on your cell while having an interaction with other individuals --- particularly those people who are handling your money, be it in the grocery store, the mall or at a petrol station. It is unacceptable to treat cashiers as ATMs. 

When with others in a social setting, try to refrain from using your cell phone. It implies you'd rather be somewhere else, with someone else, and that who you are with is less important.
