    kindly rephrase the setence

    I am unable to convey what I exactly want to say. Although I have tried it in the following sentences. Kindly correct it or modify it wherever required.

    I have just slowed down the volume of my message tone. Here everybody is looking ato me again and again as my cell honking enormously which never had been used to.


    Regards...

    Re: kindly rephrase the setence

    I've had to turn the volume down on my ring tone because I found that, here, everyone was staring at me when my phone rang. I wasn't used to that before.

    Thanks for rephrasing the sentence for him!.. the context is that that the phone rings whenever message comes. And it is ringing frequently because now the messages are coming in every 5 mins. It is attracting the attention of the people as the phone didnt use to ring this much before..


    Jlinger......how about this one?

    I've turned the volume down of the message tone. Here, everyone starts staring me/looking at me the moment my phone rings as it was never used to do that before.
