    I do this all the time at work...I look down at my berry and sigh disgustingly...say "aw crap" and start to type a reply to an old text or something in my inbox. Works everytime, no one wants to have "small talk" with me over what Im "aw crap"-ing about! LOL

    Everyone knows I have vibrate on 24.7 and I'll just mess around and looked shocked at a vibration and act like I just answered a phone call.

    Works like a charm. Ask cutdacheck if he doesn't notice me doing it to him... Lol.

    i used to do this on bad dates:
    i would play a ringtone really quick, then stop it and pretend to talk to "a family member"
    then i would get up and apologize or whatever

    except one time when i tried it....
    i was on my "phone call" and someone texted me...
    so i had a ringtone going off in my ear
    he immediately knew it was fake
    :/

    Who needs to use their Berry? Just don't take a shower for a week or two, and people will avoid you!

    Well, the persistent ones usually don't care that I haven't looked up at them from my BB!
    I just carry on... I know it may seem rude...but isn't it rude to interrupt someone when they are obviously engrossed in something else?

    This is funny because people usually sense when I want to be left alone. But in the last 5 minutes, here at the bus stop, I have been asked for the time once, asked for directions twice, and small-talked once, by three different people -- all while standing aloof, surfing on my BB! This has never happened to me at this bus stop. Very strange!

    I usually just tell people hey I am not in the mood to talk to you. If its a stranger I just ignore them.

    I continually check it like I am expecting something very important. Everyone who knows me knows that email is life and the only way to get me to respond immediately.

    I set calander alarms to ring about every 10 min if I'm going somewhere I don't want to be. I use ringtones then just "answer the phone".

    I must be in the minority, but I go out of my way to make small talk because I know others hate it.
    I just won't talk to you, politely ask that you not bother me, or if you make yourself too much of a nuisance, tell you to shut the **** up in various fashions

    except one time when i tried it....
    i was on my "phone call" and someone texted me...

    No, just pretend to check for a text message. 'hey, hold on a sec. <check screen> oh, nothing, i just got a text and was checking it. so yeah...'

    I don't ever use my BB to avoid people. If I don't want to be or can't be bothered, I just say so.
    Exactly. People think I'm rude, but since I don't like very many people this is acceptable So yeah, I don't use my phone to avoid people.

    When I see someone comming and I don't wanna be bothered I just put the phone to my ear and start talking to myself. But I know one day the phone is gonna ring and I'm gonna look like such an *****. lmao.

    I don't usually use it to avoid people, but I find when I'm in an elevator with a coworker I barely know, I can just take it out of my purse and type a little message to someone, or pretend to, so I don't have to make small talk. It looks like "work stuff" so they won't make small talk either.

    Works like a charm.
    Your shy huh?
