Office etiquette shifting leaves some to think it's okay to use a personal cell phone at work. But it's personal, and shouldn't be used on company time.
Like the cell phone issue, this has shifted to becoming popular. Do what you are paid to do. It does matter what you are doing, even if no one catches you.
It might require you sacrifice to call rather than text, but do what your boss prefers.
It's not enough to be on time, because that is expected. Be a little early everyday and if you are late make sure you acknowledge it and apologize. Plan to make up the time.
