Question 43: Seeing adults – and children – who simply refuse to be unglued from their cellphones, no matter where they happen to be, is very common. Cellphone users often seem to forget that others share the same planet, and the talkers can be completely insensitive to those around them – to the noticeable annoyance of non-cellphone users. Cellphones have lives, increased business opportunities, and kept friendships going, but they have also been known to destroy the magic of the movies, make everyone at a restaurant turn around and stare, and bring many a meeting to an abrupt halt. People have even been known to carry their mobile phones to funerals! Your cellphone is undoubtedly very important to you because it keeps you in touch with the hundreds of urgent things you have to do every day. If you are a frequent cellphone user, you will insist that these gadgets are, after all, supposed to be anywhere – anywhere phones. Isn’t that why we call them mobile? It is true that cellphones would not be of much use if you could not use them anywhere and anytime. And that is exactly why most cellphones come with a host of features you can use to ensure that disturbance to others is kept to a minimum. Even the most basic cellphones have a range of ring settings, with some adequate soft-toned not to annoy those around you. Some phones vibrate or flash a light to alert you, and some let out quiet little beeps. The voice mail option allows you to switch off and still no miss any calls or messages at all. So enjoy the benefits that cellphones bring, and at the same time, show consideration for others. The author thinks cellphones should be________ .
