Top Ten Cell Phone Manners

4Cell phones are great—they keep us in touch with friends and family and can be life savers in an emergency. But they can also be annoying if not used thoughtfully. Remember, your phone doesn’t have to be on all the time and you don’t always have to answer it immediately. Learn to use your phone’s features like silent ring, vibrate and voice mail to handle the times when your phone would be bothering others if it rang and you answered it.

Be in control of your phone, don’t let it control you!
Speak softly.
Be courteous to those you are with; turn off your phone if it will be interrupting a conversation or activity.
Watch your language, especially when others can overhear you.
Avoid talking about personal or confidential topics in a public place.
If it must be on and it could bother others, use the silent ring mode and move away to talk.
Don’t make calls in a library, theater, church, or from your table in a restaurant.
Don’t text during class or a meeting at your job.
Private info can be forwarded, so don’t text it.
NEVER drive and use your phone at the same time.

The Operating System

8The iPhone software residing inside the Apple phone is called iOS.

It is the operating system that gives the i Phone its user friendly interface, and it is what makes this phone so unique among the hundreds of other Google Android phones.

The beauty of the Apple phone is that it is made by one single company. Apple makes the design, and makes both the hardware and the software of the phone. Therefore, everything is perfectly compatible with each other.

Any new hardware update is always followed by a software update that takes full advantage of the hardware. This makes it easy for developers to make the best and highest quality applications that use the phones hardware and software to its full potential.

With Apple making both the hardware and software, it becomes harder and harder for the competition to catch up and meet the same level of compatibility, stability, battery life, performance and integration between software and hardware that the iPhone enjoys
