Do not say Hello because the name belongs to the wife of phone inventor Graham Bell , he only used the name to test the device

Even your 3rd point is wrong, we don't use beeper here; beeper and cell phone are two different electronic device, take note.

(3) Do not say: "Flash me".
...Say: "Give me a drop-call, beep me, or give me a beep".

Some set of people created a slang (beep me) and Nigerians created their own slang (flash me)
And you turn around to say one slang is better than the other! Is that not inferiority complex?

Btw, 'beep me' doesn't necessarily translate to 'flash me'; it also means 'call me'

Hi Nairalanders, permit me to share these 5 simple PHONE LANGUAGE we misuse daily, could be of help to someone.

(1) Do not say: "I saw your missed call".
...Say: "I missed your call".

(2) Do not say: "Your voice is cracking".
...Say: 'The line is breaking".

(3) Do not say: "Flash me".
...Say: "Give me a drop-call, beep me, or give me a beep".

(4) Do not say: "I am hearing you".
...Say: "I can hear you".

(5) Do not say: "Come again".
...Say: "I can't hear you".

Note: Etymologically, the word 'telephone' comes from Latin and Greek.
'Tele' in Latin means 'distance' and 'phone' in Greek means 'sound'. So, the compound word becomes
'distance sound' -TELEPHONE.
°Now you know better.

(I'm not the author sha, but you can still thank me.)

Please please we are Nigerians, No time
