Proper punishment

My 12-year old daughter told her stepfather to "shut" up at dinner last night.  I told her that it was wrong, explained why and she apologized to him.  I took her cell phone away and returned it around 6 pm tonight.  My husband thinks I did not take the phone away for a long enough time period.  How do I know what the proper punishment and the length of time is, when she misbehaves?  Did the punishment I gave fit the crime?
