    I get annoyed by the ring tones. People have them on the loudest setting and half the time ignore them. If you don't want to answer it, press the button on the phone to turn off the ringer.  I love technology, bu people and their bluetooth headsets need a lesson in manners. Do you need to wear it all the time, NO! Take it off at restaurants, movie theaters, etc. When I see grandpa with one, that just cracks me up. I can not stand Nextels. For the love of all that is good and just, I don't want to hear both sides of the conversation in in the grocery store! That walkie talkie feature is annoying.

    Cool things are invented, but them some people need to respect others around them. Vibrate is the best feature on a phone!

    It drives me nuts that phones have "broadcast" or "boom box" features to play their tinny grainy ringtones or mp3s out loud.  Sorry kid, but you're neither a playah nor a gangsta sitting on the bus behind me playing akon rings.

    I once got so pissed off that i turned around and told the kid to "please answer your phone" and then gestured with my hands as if i was snapping a pencil in half, indicating that I'd be doing that to his clamshell in a few seconds if he didn't comply.
