A handy tip for those who routinely have their phone go off at inappropriate times (in a meeting, at the movies, during class): use something besides a badly converted version of one of the latest top 40 songs. You can try a recording of a cough, a sneeze, a throat clear; anything that wonâ€™t draw as much attention as Diddyâ€™s latest track. Personally, I use a classic phone ring, which might not be as inconspicuous as some of the methods mentioned above, but itâ€™s not as annoying to those around me who might not share my musical tastes and donâ€™t care that my new phone has MP3 ring tones. Plus, the old school method still works the best: just put it on vibrate and forget about it. Unless youâ€™re in your car or at home and youâ€™re by yourself, thereâ€™s a good chance that the people around you should and will get upset when Beyonce blares from your pocket.
