Smartphone Netiquette

Smartphone Netiquette is the culture that surrounds mobile telephones with internet connections and Operating Systems (OS's).

These devices can do things computers used to be the only things able to do. The same apps we used on them in the past have mobile versions for our phones.


Smartphone netiquette rules are conventions for their use. The portability of them makes them accessible almost anywhere.

This does not mean that you can or should use them anywhere. Ringing telephones are known to distract meetings of all sorts.

It is common to begin a gathering by asking participants to turn of their alerts. The most important rule regarding these devices is do not talk or text and drive.

The damage accidents cause cannot be undone in most cases. Human life is often lost or changed forever in preventable accidents.



The iPhone made the Smartphone popular in 2007. Now it is a category of device. They have preinstalled applications (apps) that organize it.

There is a calendar, email, and synchronization built in. Additionally, there are free and fee based apps available for download from the service provider, manufacturer, and other developers.

They are smart because of their features. A media player, camera, GPS, broadband, and Wi-Fi. This, on top of an OS that allows installation of apps.

They can connect to a personal computer with Bluetooth or USB cable to transfer media. A keyboard is built in or virtual.

A virtual keyboard is a soft keyboard on touchscreen phones. Typically the screens are larger than traditional cell phones to accommodate the multimedia capabilities.
