??? I'm a  bit confused, this thread doesn't seem to be getting heated to me.

I think she means that it's overdone at this point.  We had this topic discussed in just about every way possible by now.  It seems as if a new thread on the subject pops up monthly - it'd be better for our new members to just contribute to one of the existing threads rather than start yet another one.

And, Keen, I've added it to the list in the OP.

Ah, I understand. Sorry! I didn't realise there had been lots of other threads on this subject.  :-[

I didn't find a mention of telemarketer threads. Aren't they both overdone and rude?

BTW, I think this topic should be pinned... and maybe reorganised so that all the "off-limits" subjects show up on the first page.
Thanks to Dottyg for starting it, it's really helpful!

I don't know about telemarketer threads, but another phone subject always repeats itself:

Bad Cell Phone Behavior.

Although sometimes I think this needs to be discussed frequently because we have to declare war on this plague on society.   ;D

And there are so many different kinds of bad cell-phone behavior.

Cell phones on public transit, cell phones in the bathroom, cell phones at church, cell phones at the movies ...

Yeah, it's kind of a plague. :)

Until it becomes socially acceptable to shove the phones where the...uh...signal won't pick up, it's going to be an uphill battle. :-X ;D

I'm sure the roaming charges are prohibitive under that plan.

"Honey, where did all these roaming charges come from?"
