    If you have an iphone, you can use the color filters feature to set the iphone to only output red light. This is done by going into settings > Accessibility > Display & Text Size > Color Filters. You can then set the accessibility shortcut on the phone (triple click home button) to toggle this red light only mode, in Settings > Accessibility > Accessibility Shortcut. I do this whenever I am in the darkroom, and with this on, and brightness at minimum, I have never noticed issues with fogging.

    For a fone, I'd be tempted to make an extension with a conch shell, and some string, ala "SpongeBob SquarePants"... (I don't take calls in the lab, too distracting"...)

    A famous bar on Melrose Ave in LA is called "The Darkroom"... Great name, because if anyone calls, tell 'em I'm in the darkroom, call later... ;-)

    An old rule is to never return to a bar, if somebody calls you there, get up and leave ... now, use the back door

    Same rule works for Darkroom

    for decades

    RE the "darkroom/bar" - A favorite ritual after a long day of printing - I often will bring a small snifter of bourbon down to my darkroom to enjoy as my prints are going through their final wash.
