it's simple, just turn off the phone and put inside in bag

I put my phone silent

I do my best to not to check my phone constantly when I am at the meeting. I feel like I need to check if there is any text message or an update on instagram or facebook. It become one of the most dangerous habbit recently.

When I am with my family or my friends my mobile phone stay turned off. I hate when I am speaking with someone and people tell on mobile phone.

When i meet your friend at coffee shop, we usually chat with together. Then, each person use the mobile and stop converstion.

If i have a call, i'll always get answer it, because could be important. And if i have a message, i try to see who could be and answer it later.

Depending on the situation.
If I am in a meeting I Power off the cellphone or put it on silent state, then I watch who called me and I return the call.
But if I am with my friends, I don't have any problem in use it

I prefer to switch my phone to silent mode & vibrate status. I only answer when i get an important call from my family or friends.

It depends on the situation. Sometimes I keep it inside my bag and sometimes, if other people do the same, I put it upon the table. Instead at work I switch off the ringer.

I will switch to silent mode. So,it is not disturb anymore and I can stay to see important callings.
