Perhaps cell phone providers should offer Politenessman-hankies to go with new sign-ups.

Japan allows public places such as theaters and concert halls to install cell phone jammers:

In addition, many in Japanese culture, as a measure of politeness, txt mssg the party they are about to call, a few minutes before ringing them.

Now there is a new service called Slydial, which enable callers to leave stealth cell phone messages without ever ringing the phone. They guarantee the phone will not ring! So far almost ¼ million have felt the need to sign up.
