    I really like when BB Users ignore actual real/living people to focus on their BB.

    Put BB on vibrate only anywhere there is a chance you might cause a disruption, such as but not limited to religious services, meetings and seminars, movies, libraries ...

    Answering a call in a movie, and not immediately getting up to leave while saying "hold on a minute, I'm in a movie and I need to leave!"

    A friend of mine went to his doctor's office and he was checking his BB more then he was paying attention to his patient! (needless to say, he switched doctors)

    There's nothing that bothers me more when a new memeber posts on a forum and starts bad mouthing the BB. That to me is a no no........

    There is nothing I hate most than people trying to show off especially if they don't have anything good to say.

    I've been leading meetings as people are distracted by the Blackberry. Once it starts then others join in. Stating that no checking Blackberry's during the meeting doesnt seem like a good idea though.

    I am too new to blackberry to have encountered my first rude user. But it's out there, like turning 40 or 50. IT's out there and it's just a matter of time.

    I was in a meeting at work and the consutant got a message and stopped her presentation to text message back to her friend. Later we found out that this was not a work related message. Needless to say, her company was not selected for the job

    I think this goes for all phone users. Don't talk on the phone when you are talking to someone else. This includes asking someone to "wait a minute" while they take a call and talking on the phone while ordering food at a drive through.

    I think it should be like your cell phone. Just be curtious when out in public.

    Nah. I think if you are on the phone dont interupt the dude on the phone as well. Especially if they are talking on an awesome BB! Think about it! I like talking on mine when going through a drive through- it drives the person nuts! Ha. Just kidding

    I might be violating human etiquette by wearing my blackberry on a hip holster... When are they going to come out with a shoulder holster for these things?
