I shut mine off as soon as I walk into the theater.
I hold a low opinion of anyone who answers their phone, IM, TXT, or email while I'm watching a movie I paid to see.
If being available is that important to you, wait for the movie to come out on video.
how bout the vibe sound???!!! if you are sitting close to someone u can hear their phone just going vzzzzzz zzzzzzzzzz vzzzzzzz its so annoying....so here's my protocol for the movie theater
a. during the previews its fair game
b. silent for the movie
c. every so often (30 minutes or so) ill check for the red light
d. important texts get answered
e. other texts wait until after the movie
f. punch anyone who talks loudly lls jk
I like to be considerate of others so I put my phone on silent and I will wait until the movie has ended before I take my phone out again. It doesn't annoy me if someone takes their phone out as long as its not ringing during the flick... In my opinion the most annoying thing to happen in the theater aside from teens talking loud around me is that one person who has the nerve to get a phone call and sit there and take it while the movie is in progress...

The exact reason I stopped going to the movies, people talking the whole time on or off their phone....it's just annoying. You can wait for DVD or get a bootleg and enjoy in your own home theatre system.
Well I'm not going to lie, I was at the movie and it came out 1 time during the show for all of 2 seconds... Usually I dont bother my phone during the movies, but I was getting swamped with texts/bbms. I use it during the previews... but during the movie I think all phones should be put away (that goes 4 me 2)
Definitely during the commercials if you get there before the previews (you can only watch the same 5 trivia questions loop over and over again for so long). I say once the previews start you should put it away. On silent or vibrate of course. If you get a vibration alert and you can't control yourself keep it close to your body and glance at the sender to see if it can't wait. My 8900s screen is pretty bright. Nothings more annoying then a huge beckon of light shooting from someones seat during a dark scene.
I use my BlackBerry everywhere. I have no shame. Seriously if I have to see ugly people make out and listen to screaming babies and other crap you can deal with a light coming on and "click, click, click".
