Just over 21 percent of respondents said that being blasted by someone’s mobile noise was the most offensive mobile habit. People talking loudly on their handset followed close behind in second place with with just under 21 percent of people saying this habit irked them.
Surprisingly, only 1.65 percent of people said that their partner’s use of a mobile phone while in bed was a problem. The mobile company’s mobile etiquette study, follows on from a similar study conducted by Redshift Research on behalf of Intel Corp. UK earlier in July, which revealed that bad mobile habits are on the rise.
