Nine out of ten Americans possess a cell phone. With such extensive coverage, it’s no surprise that some cell phone users, whether intentional or not, can be rude in public. That’s one reason why the month of July has been designated as National Cell Phone Courtesy Month.
You’re probably wondering, is it even possible to use a cell phone in public and not be rude?
Yes, it is. In fact, it’s very easy. According to Jacqueline Whitmore, the founder of National Cell Phone Courtesy Month, it’s as simple as being aware of your surroundings and respecting the rights of others. That’s pretty much all it takes. If you want specific tips and tricks on using your cell phone in public, I encourage you to check out our recent press release.
Courtesy is a designation that’s close to my heart. In fact, I consider "courtesy" to be the “third C" in our name.
I also believe cell phone courtesy is more than simply putting a cell phone on vibrate mode or not shouting in public. It’s about treating our customers right by keeping our cell phone plan prices affordable and making our invoices transparent and easy to read. It’s our free Usage Alerts program that automatically notifies each customer when he or she approaches their plan’s limit. It’s allowing our customers to increase their plan’s limits at any time, enabling them to avoid unnecessary overage fees. And it’s our service agents going the extra mile for customers.
Clearly, this commitment has paid off. Every day we receive rave comments from grateful customers. In fact, one customer recently told us we should open a Compliments Department.
Consumer Cellular is rated the #1 no-contract, wireless cell phone plan service provider in the nation!
I like to think courtesy has a lot to do with it.
