If I was you I'd just tell him that you're kinda addicted of looking at your phone but you'll try and not do it as much.
Because if you don't he'll probably feel like you're not interested and that you're board because you're looking at the phone so much.
But if you tell him the truth then he won't think that:)
I always use my phone but can always leave it for hours if I want to ahah2

Generally speaking, no. If something is going on at home (a parent is in the hospital, etc) it's ok as long as you let your date know. Otherwise, it's incredibly rude.
Rule of thumb: if it's inappropriate for a business meeting, it's inappropriate for a date.1
