Don’t Speak Loudly! – Cellphone Etiquette Around the World

Cellphones have become essential for everyone. As for me, I can’t even imagine going out without my cellphone on any given day. I can’t bear to be on the playing field without my gadget of choice — my cellphone.

What’s more, as professionals, we are expected to have etiquette in everything we do, including how to handle phones. Cellphones in particular have become part of the basic items we carry all the time. Besides, it’s a communication tool, so proper etiquette is expected from everyone using it.

We know the etiquette in the US regarding cellphones, how about in other parts of the world. What is expected of cellphone wielding people like us?

Let’s go to France — the French people tend to speak softer than most other nationalities, so speaking loudly on a phone is absolutely rude. They are also careful not to give personal information over phone conversations.

On we go to Japan. In the land of the rising sun, it is considered bad behavior to talk on your phone around strangers especially in public places. The social norm is to excuse yourself and go to an area where people will not be able to hear your phone tete-a-tete.

Next, why don’t we visit the leaning tower of Pisa in Italy? During a sales meeting in the Italian Republic, it’s acceptable to keep your phone on if you happen to be the client, but sales people are expected to turn off their phones all throughout the duration of the meeting.

How about the rest of the world, what’s the accepted behavior when handling your cellphones? Join me, let’s check them below.
