You must be aware of the extraordinary rise in popularity of the mobile phone as they say in the United Kingdom or cell phone in the United States. Twenty years ago, having a mobile phone meant carrying a very costly device the size of a house brick around with you and very few individuals owned one. Ten years ago, they were still quite expensive yet a lot of individuals had one and now they are quite cheap and even young children carry them around.

In fact, cell phones have become so ubiquitous in many countries, that landline telephone firms have started removing public telephones because no one uses them any more and they are too expensive to maintain because of to repeated vandalism.

It is very rare to be seated in a public place like a train or a pub and not have someone close to you talking into a mobile phone. In fact, numerous individuals become quite angry about individuals with mobile phones not becoming mobile when their phone rings.

Why do they not get up and go away to a quiet corner to take the call? No, most individuals merely sit there talking into their phone annoying everyone around them.

This then is my first cell phone tip: if you cell phone rings in a public place, get up and move away to answer the call. Everyone near you will be very grateful. We do not want to hear your private conversations and we do not want to feel that we have to keep our voices down because you are on the telephone.

After learning this piece of cell phone etiquette, here are some pointers for getting the most out of your cell phone.

This first thing to do after you acquire your mobile phone is to read the manual. If you always purchase the same make, say, Nokia, you will be aware of the way that the phone works without reading the manual, yet if they have added new functions you may miss them.

Manufacturers are constantly trying to stay one step ahead of their competition and they do this by adding functions rather than reducing the price. By actually reading the manual, you will become aware of these new functions.

Visit the manufacturer's web site. There may be mistakes or omissions in the manual or they might have upgraded the phone very recently. There will also be a help email address there for if you are stuck and an emergency phone number. The phone line will be either busy or costly, so send your question by email instead.

Lots of cell phones permit you to assign different ring tones to different individuals. This is handy if used properly. For example, you could set one ring tone for your immediate family and the baby sitter, so that you know to pull over and take the call without even having to look at the screen.

Likewise, you could assign your boss a personal ring tone so that you can choose not to answer it if you are enjoying yourself.
