A nationwide survey about cell phone etiquette is ringing loud and clear. The Sprint Corp. survey says people are less courteous when using a cell phone, although they don't necessarily see themselves that way.
Like Stewart McKibben, who works at Wilson's restaurant in Wilmington. He says it's a hassle waiting on people who constantly have a cell phone stuck to their ear, but admits he's guilty of doing the same.
The survey also says people are less courteous today than five years ago. This statistic doesn't surprise Richard Smith, who says his cell phone is always on. He'll answer it, even when dining with family.
It's proven most Americans turn their phone off when in public places of professional, educational or cultural nature; Americans keep their phone on when in public places of a more social nature; and when dining out, 34 percent place their cell phones on vibrate, while 18 percent turn the phone off and 11 percent lower the ring volume.
