Whenever I have to take or make a phone call in a lounge (and I'll only make one if it is urgent) I'll walk away from my seat and go somewhere away from others - for privacy and out of courtesy.
Try not walking to the phone booths in the JAL lounges, the staff will be pretty quick to come by and point out that you are not allowed to use your phone in the open space. I wish all airline lounges were like that .
