    If your cell rings & it is your on-car. Do you usually pull over to answer it or let it go to voice mail?

    Similar scenario...you just left the center & have a bunch of windshield time before you get to your area, do you stop and check a new diad message or wait until you get to your first stop?

    My oncar contacts me via the diad, he knows I won't answer my cell as it's behind the bulkhead door and used for personal business only.

    If I'm on the highway, and a long way from my next stop, I'll answer the cell. If I'm on side roads shifting a lot, I'll wait.
     
  6. Let it ring! The people that need to get ahold of me,text me! They know I will reply when I get a chance. Also I have a different ringer tones, so I know who it is without having to look at the phone! I have the 3 stooges ringtone for my boss!

    I virtually never text on my cell during the work day but I text friends at night.

    I don't answer any of their calls. They know this yet they still call it. I laugh every time they call.

    I look at my phone at 11:30, 3:30, and 6:30, unless I am expecting an important call. If its an emergency, its a txt which I can read quickly. I text more than talk, but dont do much of either.

    I would let it go to VM, now. They can send the message via diad. I like documenting things.

    Oh, I text way more than talk. It's free. I have the iPhone verizon 450 min plan, so I don't talk much. Text, video, and web is all free.

    If I answer the phone, I pull over and answer it. The only time I text is during breaks.

    Checking the diad message is a tough one for me. I used to check it as soon as the light went on and have been breaking myself of that habit. With the new diads, I carry that in the holster, so I cannot see the light, so I am thinking I won't check it until I get to a stop.

    Last week, I was covering a route that starts early and does an air meet. I knew about what time I would be getting a call with the meet ETA, so I had the phone ready for that. It worked out, that every call came during a stop, twice at the same place.

    I'll only pull over to answer my phone if it's my mommy. Never for a sup or manager.
