Well there should at least be some courtesy, but this is for use with all phones. And a test to decide if you NEED a blackberry. If your a house wife, Odds are you don't need one. And If you don't own a computer, you Don't need one.
follow the general rules of what you would want from others.
It is mind boggling to think that people can have such disregard for common sense and for others. The BB is a HUGE extension of your phone, email, browser, etc. Use the same rules for those on your BB. Curtesy, professionalism, attentiveness, etc.
I havent seen any rude users yet, although I am now realizing why someone would be on this thing all the time. There are so many features and its so fun. So what if the boss is trying to conduct a meeting, Im busy using the BB!
i think there should be a universal sign when someone is on their bluetooth.
i hate when a woman comes in with hair over her earpeice, and you cont see it, so you thinkwhen she say yes to your question, and hen she gets mad cause you interupted her on her phone call.
I think that people should have enough common sense when it comes to BlackBerry, or any cellular device or PDA for that matter, use and/or abuse. Nobody wants to sit on the train or in a restaurant next to the loud **** on their phone. Nobody wants to be immersed in important conversation with someone who simply can't keep themselves from checking the email every 45 seconds.
BUUUUT, there are so many people who don't choose to be rude, obnoxious, and horribly irritating. Whether they know better or not is up for debate, but, regardless, it's true.
This just happened to be a BlackBerry user but this really applies to all cellphone users. For whatever reason people seem to think they need to yell into the phone and then are completely shocked when everyone listens to their "private" conversation. If you are in a crowded restaurant and can't hear the person on the other end take the phone outside - don't yell on your end - it doesn't make it possible for you to hear any better!
There's only one rule in the BB Etiquette club....you don't talk about the BB Etiquette club! Lol
As for the etiqutte itself, I think its an unwritten BB law among BB owners that if you wouldn't like something done to you or your BB, don't do it to other BB users

I think the rudest thing anyone does with a phone is when they use the phone while they're using the toilet. I mean texting is one thing but if I hear that tell tale echo when I'm talking to someone I'm SO hanging up...
Etiquette comes from the person within not becasue of the BB so hard to answer on rules for me , however I do have a story not related to Etiquette well maybe a bit of it , I was at a junction and the light went green so I waited and waited for the driver in front of me to move,being Irish and having a bit of a temper it took all my strengh to stay in the car and not honk like a mad looney, I did do a polite honk, and after a while I pulled around the PERSON to find the Donkey with both hands on top of the wheel on there BB, thats when I let fly with you know what, now thats BAD.
