I make my phone silent & i call for missing calls later.

It´s a question of knowing in what kind of place you are and what kind of public you´re managing to. If I am in a meeting at work, I silent my phone but when I am with my friends, my phone is quite noisy.

I put the phone on silent.

If i am with other people who my friends and at random.. have a call, i'll pick it up after making an apologize to go outside. If in formal enviroment with someone else I often put my phone in silent then if have any miss calling I'll call back. That's hove I manage my phone in some different case.

ussualy I keep me phone with sound off, just on vibration, at pablic places.

I loathe mobiles and I don't have one and will never have any!
It's just annoying, harmful, I'd say. In the first place, caller calls you up without thinking what the other peson is doing at that moment. So I never forgive any callers... Instead of calling up with your phone, write to me please!

I do not switch off my phone. If it is a long speaking or not important, i will not answer. I only answer for a short speaking when i am with other people.

I speak in a low voice . if I am in Important meeting I put my phone silent

usually I donot answer my mobile when i meet someone. but if someone call from the my sons school, I am going to answer the phone.

when I am in a meeting I just keep my phone silent after the meeting I call back to them ,some time if I feel there is an urgent call I am receiving that otherwise not. when I am with my family or friends I do not receiving unnecessary phone calls but giving time to my family or friends. That's how I manage a phone call when I am with other people.
