Q. After accepting Shabbos may one directly tell a Jew to do melacha (work) or only through hinting? I accepted Shabbos and afterwards someone wanted to borrow my phone. Can I tell them where it is and give them the password so they can use it?
A. On question 298 we wrote: Shulchan Aruch (O. H. 263: 17) rules that it is permitted for someone that has already accepted Shabbos to ask another that has not, to do a melocho for him. Mishna Berura (ibid.64) warns that this should not be done when it is already too close to sunset, as the majority of the community has already received Shabbos and the few that have not would be drawn by them.
