BB etiquette should be the same as cellphone etiquette.
- Turn your phone OFF or on silent at the movies. Even if you "never" get phone calls.
- While driving, no using the phone without a headset. No texting whatsoever.
- It's so annoying when people have these loud, obnoxious ringtones and they let them play. First of all, I think that in public places like banks, stores, offices or restaurants phones should be on vibrate or if you must have them on a ringtone, keep the volume on low and the phone within reach so you can turn it off or answer the call right away.
- When you do answer the phone, please don't talk so loud that everyone knows what time you are going to the hairdresser or what you're having for dinner tonight.
I work in a retail gift shop some of the time and I always see/hear people on their bluetooth headsets looking like complete weirdos that are talking to themselves while shopping. It's quite commical, I understand the headsets purpose but not in small gift shop please
I think there are generally some socially set rules for blackberry ettiquette. I try not to use my bb while I'm talking to my friends face to face b/c we both feel like it's rude. It's just like any other phone - it's just better..
The only rude use that I can think of is during a meeting with a Salesperson, client, or the CEO of our company, having them pause mid conversation to check their email. It can wait a minute or two. But, I know how they feel, Crack is a tough habit to kick.
