I agree that you can use cell phones appropriately. But with everything they should be used with others in mind. I hate when people are talking on the phone while ordering food or having others wait on them.

My favorite thing in terms of rudeness is the folks at work who sit there and check their e-mails during a meeting and then have the nerve to ask you to repeat yourself or talk about stuff you've already covered and say, "oh I'm sorry I had an important thing going on".... I think that's me biggest blackberry no-no, either pay attention or check out of the meeting....
I'd have to say that BBs should be turned off, or if you are expecting a VERY important call, put it on silent or vibrate. Otherwise, all attention should be focused on the meeting itself and the people within. Other than that, I have no problems with BBs/cell phones being uses in restaurants (as long as the person is not talking as loud as they can!). Oh yeah, put that thing away at the movies man!
I was on a bus and some doctors were using their new blackberrys. They asked us to move over so they could sit together and sat out in the aisle and were showing off their screens and stuff. But when I asked what model they had, they just snubbed away. dum doctors. ALWAYS show off your blackberry if someone asks --- NEVER shove off your blackberry if someone doesn't care. That's my rule.
