Under the direction ofMobile commerce relies extensively on mobile phones, which, unlike wired e-commerce client computers, can be used anywhere and anytime and consequently are often used in social situations including restaurants, theaters, and buses. Use of mobile phones in these environments affects not only the user but also co-located people who can be bothered by ringing phones, overheard conversations, and clicking keys. How people perceive the impact of mobile phones in these situations may vary by user factors such as age and work status, and by the culture of the country in which the user is located. We have conducted a multinational study of attitudes about mobile phone use in social situations to which we have received over 1000 responses from five countries. This paper presents the first results from this study.
