Somewhat much is everyone having a cell phone today, and with the great advantages of mobile phone comes also a responsibility. It's certainly the right and improper phone protocol, and unfortunately, an inappropriate phone protocol is still rampant among the public.
One major example of bad mobile protocol is that people shout their phones. Have you ever noticed how people speak much higher in mobile than regular phones? It is very common and can be very annoying for all those who are nearby. Many will apologize to another room when they call, but sometimes you can not go. For example, when you go to a car with someone you may need to make a call and there is no "other room" that you can enter. It is sometimes like these when mobile phone usage is extremely important.
So why do people naturally volunteer in their mobile phones? It's a rather simple explanation, in fact. Home phones or landlines, have a microphone in the receiver that amplifies your voice in the ear section. When you enter a landline, your voice is taken and played through the earpiece, so you hear your own voice loud and clear. It's very similar to how a wireless DJ hears a headset, speaks in a microphone and hears its own voice on the headsets. With mobile phones, your own voice is not listed on the headset, so the only sound you hear is from your mouth. Seem like this would not be a big difference, but the volume of the words coming from the mouth through the air into the ear is quite a big difference from the sounds coming from a caller group pushed directly to the ear.
Mobile phones are very common in society, but relatively considerably they are still new. Unless you're a teenager, you're definitely greeted when your home phone was a norm, and you're consciously skilled to work like every phone works like home phones. So it's not surprising that when most of us made the switch from landline to mobile, we left a lot of our habits. Now, we hear our own voice as much softer than talked to our mobile and natural response is talking.
It is important to avoid this tendency in situations where you are trying to be polite. Remember, people want to hear you scream mobile phones about as much as you want to hear them scream mobile. Keep in mind that while talking to a mobile phone, you only need to use your normal voice, as if the person was right next to you.
Perhaps one day, mobile operators will decide to incorporate the same voice technology in cell phones commonly used on landlines. But that's probably not happening. Mobile phones are here to be, so we all need to fix and start practicing proper mobile phone usage.
