The person you're speaking with may not bring annoying behavior to your attention, so it's important that you know the difference between proper and poor phone skills. (See also: <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/12-things-people-with-good-communication-skills-never-do?ref=seealso">12 Things People With Good Communication Skills Never Do</a>)</p> <p>Here's a list of nine things people with good phone skills never do.</p> <h2>1. They Don't Interrupt</h2> <p>You wouldn't dare interrupt a person when speaking face-to-face, so why would you interrupt a person on the other end of a phone conversation? Conversations with relatives and close acquaintances tend to be more casual, but this isn't license to jump in. It doesn't matter if you're busy, overly excited, or simply want the conversation to move faster, interrupting is rude and appears as if you don't respect or appreciate the other person's viewpoint or feelings.</p> <h2>2. They Don't Immediately Jump Into Conversations</h2> <p>If you're the caller and the other person says, &quot;hello,&quot; don't jump straight into the conversation without identifying yourself. Never assume the person on the other end recognizes your voice. And even if they do, it doesn't take much effort to say a brief greeting and ask about their day.</p> <h2>3. They Don't Blindside With the Speakerphone</h2> <p>Phones have a speaker option for a reason. If you're driving, it's easier to carry a phone conversation when the person's on speaker, and speakerphone comes in handy when your hands are tied up at other times. However, if you're going to use speaker, notify the person on the other end of the call &mdash; especially when others are in earshot of the conversation. If not, the person you're speaking with might say something he doesn't want others to hear.</p> <h2>4. They Don't Multitask While on the Phone</h2> <p>Whether it's a restaurant or a bank, never conduct business while talking on the telephone. This is rude to the person on the line, and to the person trying to provide services. Both need your undivided attention, and when you attempt to speak to two people at the same time, your listeners will have a difficult time following the conversation. They won't know whether a comment is meant for them or the other person.</p> <p>This rule of thumb also applies to phone conversations at home. Sometimes, you might have to pause a phone conversation to speak with your kids or spouse, but don't make this a habit. The person on the other end doesn't want to hear you fussing or conversing with your kids between every other word.</p> <h2>5. They Don't Continue Calls After Meeting Someone</h2> <p>When you're meeting up with someone, you may talk on your phone to occupy time until your friend arrives. However, when they do arrive, it's common courtesy to end the phone conversation. There's nothing more annoying than meeting up with someone for lunch, and then having to sit quietly 10 or 15 minutes as the other person rudely talks on the phone.</p> <h2>6. They Don't Leave Friends Hanging</h2> <p>It isn't only rude to continue a conversation after meeting up with someone; it's also rude to accept a call and engage in a long conversation when you're already with someone. There are times when you may need to take an important phone call. In this case, apologize in advance and step aside to take the call &mdash; but keep it brief and return as soon as possible. Don't step away for several minutes and leave your friend hanging. If you believe a phone conversation will take longer than a couple of minutes, return the call later.</p> <h2>7. They Don't Forget the Phone Volume</h2> <p>Your speakerphone might be off, but if the phone's volume is turned up, people nearby might be able to hear the person on the other end of the phone. On several occasions I've sat besides someone on their cell phone and heard everything the other person said. To keep your private conversations private, turn down the speaker volume before starting your conversation.</p> <h2>8. They Don't Talk at Inappropriate Times</h2> <p>Cell phones let us communicate with people anytime, anyplace, but there are times when using a phone is inappropriate. People with good phone skills never yank out their phones at the movies, church, or any other place that requires silence. If there's an emergency and you have to take a phone call, step into the lobby or outside.</p> <h2>9. They Don't Talk on the Phone While Eating</h2> <p>We all multitask; and sometimes, we have to take care of business during a lunch or dinner break. This is understandable, but the people you speak with on the phone don't want to hear you munching away. Besides, cell phones don't always offer the clearest sound. Between background noise, your mouth too close to the microphone, and poor reception, a mouthful of food can make it hard for others to understand what you're saying.</p> <p><em>What other rules of phone etiquette should people follow?

I don’t know about you, but when I get those large plastic bags filled with 3lb phone books, I usually put them straight in the recycling bin. We never use them. Now a website similar to the National No-Call registry is asking you to sign up and stop receiving these archaic books. </p> <p>The facts speak loud and clear; the massive amount of money and resources the phone directory industry sucks up is phenomenal. This, from <a href="http://www.yellowpagesgoesgreen.org/">YellowPagesGoesGreen.org</a> : <ul> <li>540 million directories are printed annually in the United States.</li> <li>The average weight of each directory is 3.62 lbs.</li> <li>1.79 directories are printed for every man, woman and child in the US. </li> <li>The phone directory industry is worth over $13 billion in the US (that figure doubles to $26 billion worldwide).</li> <li>It takes 24 trees to make 1 ton of paper.</li> <li>It takes over 19 million trees to make half a trillion directories.</li> <li>It takes 380 gallons of oil to produce that ton of paper (over 7.2 billion barrels per 500,000,000 books).</li> <li>3 cubic yards of waste are taken up by one ton of paper (that equates to 1.6 billion lbs per 500,000,000 books).</li> <li>Over 270,000 cubic yards of landfill are taken up per 500,000,000 </li> <li>7,000 gallons of water go into the production of one ton of paper.</li> <li>4,000 kilowatts of energy are also needed to make that ton of paper (3.2 billion KW hours/500,000,000 books).</li> </ul> <p>As a frugal shopper, I deplore waste (the main image at the top of this article came from someone who spotted DOZENS of yellow pages in their apartment building&#39;s dumpster). And the idea that these millions and millions of directories are being printed so that at least 90% of us can just put them into the recycling bin, well, that just burns me up. So much money, so many resources, all for nothing.</p> <p>Decades ago, there was a need for phone directories. But that industry needs to face one hard fact; it is going the way of the dinosaur. And continually producing these books is merely prolonging the inevitable, but wasting precious time and money in the process. However, if we all do something about it, maybe we can speed that process up.</p> <p>Simply <a href="http://www.yellowpagesgoesgreen.org/stop-yellow-pages/">click on this link</a> and you’ll be directed to the opt-out page at YellowPagesGoesGreen.org, where you can opt out of both the yellow and white pages. The website’s mission statement is both clear and admirable:</p> <blockquote><p><em>Yellowpagesgoesgreen.org is an organization working to educate consumers and promote the green movement to eliminate the unsolicited delivery of Yellow and White Pages books. This site is aimed at starting a national movement to solicit the White/Yellow Pages industry to proactively stop the delivery of books or to begin moving legislation to mandate the stoppage of this activity. This movement should be similar to the National No-Call Registry that have stopped and/or decreased the number of unwanted solicitations telephone calls to consumers.</em></p> </blockquote> <blockquote><p><em>A college student who was renting a house in Liberty, Missouri founded Yellowpagesgoesgreen.org. The number of telephone books delivered to the house was overwhelming and the work required to recycle them was daunting. When he spoke with his neighbors they all told him they just threw them away. Due to the use of technology, he felt these books were now outdated. However, he understood that some people may still want them and felt the best way to limit this tremendous waste was to mimic the National No-Call Directory. Additionally, he wanted this site to serve as a depository for information and educational issues concerning the green movement.</em></p></blockquote> <p>I put my name down this morning; and unless you have a real need for these books, like in the video below from <a href="http://www.collegehumor.com/video:1752127">collegehumor.com</a> , or maybe propping up a young child at the table, so that they can reach their chicken soup, I urge you to do the same. It&#39;s time to put the phone directories out of their misery.</p> <p><em>Note: There&#39;s a tiny bit of &quot;colorful&quot; language in the vid...turn down the volume if you&#39;re at work or around young ones.</em></p> <object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,29,0" width="425" height="344"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/3U9YAwuN5lA&amp;hl=en&amp;fs=1" /><param name="quality" value="high" /><param name="menu" value="false" /><param name="wmode" value="" /><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/3U9YAwuN5lA&amp;hl=en&amp;fs=1" wmode="" quality="high" menu="false" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="425" height="344"></embed></object></p> <p><em>Thanks to <a href="http://thedenveregotist.com/article/2494/enough-with-the-yellow-pages-already">The Denver Egotist</a> (via <a href="http://lifehacker.com/400663/yellowpagesgoesgreen-like-do-not-call-list-for-giant-wastes-of-paper">LifeHacker)</a> for bringing this subject to my attention.</em> </p> <br /><div id="custom_wisebread_footer"><div id="rss_tagline">This article is from <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/paul-michael">Paul Michael</a> of <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/opt-out-of-the-wasteful-26-billion-phone-directory-industry">Wise Bread</a>, an award-winning personal finance and <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/credit-cards">credit card comparison</a> website.

The government estimates that up to $10 billion will be <a href="http://www.irs.gov/newsroom/article/0,,id=161506,00.html">refunded to consumers</a>.&nbsp;</p> <p>Recent court decisions have declared that the taxes should not have applied to long distance service as it is billed today. Refunds are offered for taxes paid on long distance service between February 28, 2003 and August 1, 2006.</p> <p>The refund is only for long distance service, but if your phone bill bundles local and long distance (and/or other services), you are eligible. This refund is available for landline, wireless/cellular, and even VoIP/Internet calling plans!</p> <p>To make the refund calculation easier, the IRS has created a tiered standard payout system based on historical data:</p> <ul> <li>One exemption &mdash; $30</li> <li>Two exemptions &mdash; $40</li> <li>Three exemptions &mdash; $50</li> <li>Four exemptions or more &mdash; $60</li> </ul> <p>To claim the standard refund, you fill out one additional line on your Form 1040, 1040A, 1040NR or 1040EZ. If you don't need to file a return, you can still claim just the standard refund using the 1040EZ-T form.</p> <p>However, if you want to determine <em>exactly</em> what you are owed and get paid interest on those monies, fill out and attach Form 8913 to your tax return. (And you better have those old phone bills to back up your claim.)</p> <p>The IRS recommends using the standard refund amount rather than gathering all those old phone bills:</p> <blockquote><p>The standard amount is based on actual telephone usage data, and the amount applicable to a family or other household reflects taxes paid on long-distance or bundled service by similarly sized families or households. Using this amount may be the easiest way for taxpayers to get their refund and avoid gathering 41 months of old phone records.</p> </blockquote> <br /><div id="custom_wisebread_footer"><div id="rss_tagline">This article is from <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/greg-go">Greg Go</a> of <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/10-billion-tax-refund-for-long-distance-phone">Wise Bread</a>, an award-winning personal finance and <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/credit-cards">credit card comparison</a> website.

Now you can get the exact same service completely free by using 1-800-FREE-411 (1-800-3733-411).</p> <p>It works just like a regular 411 call. The only catch is that you have to listen to a 15-second ad, which isn't too bad considering the ads are often contextual (e.g. if you asked for Dominoes Pizza listing, you might get a Pizza Hut ad before you get the number you wanted).</p> <p>One of our writers gave it try tonight. Listen to the result:</p> <p>(If you can't use the audio player above, here's the <a href="http://wisebread.com/files/wisebread/1-800-FREE-411-call.mp3">link to the recording</a>.)</p> <p>The voice recognition technology is excellent, but live operator assistance is also available when the computer is not up to the task.</p> <p>This free 411 service has been around since last year, but it never really took off the way I thought it would. Americans make six billion 411 calls a year and only 3% of them are using the Free411 service. My guess is most people thought this was a cool idea when they first heard about it but never bothered to try the service.</p> <p>Some people may have been deterred by certain misunderstandings regarding the service. Let's clear some of those up:</p> <ul> <li>There are hidden charges right. The service has been around for at least a year and has stayed <a href="http://www.snopes.com/inboxer/nothing/free411.asp" target="_blank">completely free</a>.</li> <li>It's not buggy. It used to be when the service first came out, but this company has since received a $30 million cash infusion from investors and has successfully handled over 100 million calls. It is currently handling 600,000 calls a day. I've been using this service for over a month and have never experienced any problems.</li> <li>Don't worry aboout telemarketers. Free411 does not share your phone numbers with any telemarketers. Besides, if you haven't done so already, you should register your phone numbers with the <a href="https://www.donotcall.gov" target="_blank">National Do Not Call Registry</a>.</li> <li>This service does not require the use of a website. You use this service exactly the same way you use 411.</li> <li><span class="content">You can bypass the computer by saying &quot;Help me Obi Wan Kenobi, you are my only hope!&quot; Yes, this is 100% true.
