Mobile Phone Etiquette & Faux Pas: Fill In Our Survey & Win a Galaxy Note

July 10th, 2012

What counts as acceptable etiquette when you’re using your mobile phone? Win a Samsung Galaxy Note by filling in our 1-minute survey!

The etiquette that surrounds how we use mobile phones is changing all the time. For example, is it acceptable to use your mobile phone at the dinner table? Is it OK to answer an incoming call or to reply to a text message? How about checking in to Foursquare or playing ‘Angry Birds’ when you’re at a restaurant? Is there anything wrong with using your mobile phone on the toilet on the loo or during class? How about Googling the answers for a pub quiz?

What details is it acceptable to share about your life on Facebook and Twitter? Do you share every single small detail including what you have for breakfast or is Twitter something you use only to share interesting links and news articles? What are the top mobile phone faux pas that you commit in everyday life?

We want to learn more about your attitudes to mobile phone usage and how you use your phone so we’ve teamed up with the nice folks at giffgaff to run a short survey about your mobile phone “crimes”.
