may might

1) You may hang up or dial one for more options.
2) You might hang up or dial one for more options.

I've heard '1' used as a suggestion or instruction in pre-recorded messages, Would '2' work here? And is 'may' used elsewhere for instructions? I don't remember having encountered such a usage.

I think 'may'' is used when giving an instruction or expressing a 'rule', while 'might' is used for  suggestions, advice or orders which are given tentatively. 

Gratefully,
