Mobile Phones

The increasing use of mobile phones is revolutionizing the image of Finnish communication skills. Mobile phones have given rise to a sort of etiquette regarding their use so as to minimise disturbance and danger. Using a mobile phone is prohibited on planes and in hospitals; barbaric at a concert, at the theatre or in church; and inappropriate at meetings and in the classroom. The invasion of the mobile phone has undoubtedly changed foreigners’ perception of Finland.
