If you are such an insensitive clod to not put your phone on silent or
shut it off they *should* give you dirty looks. Ever heard of using a
little common sense? Shut the damned thing off when you're in a
movie, a concert, a funeral or any number of other situations where
it's not just tacky it's rude. Take some personal responsibility for
your own actions.

[TELECOM Digest Editor's Note: First of all (going back to the
original complaint about someone getting your cell phone number from
caller ID) use *67 on cell phones in the same way you use it on your
landline phone. Caller ID is not passed in that case.) Second, I _always_
put my cell phone on silent (or sometimes just turn it off) whenever I
am in a church or at a concert or lecture. Usually I just turn it to
silent mode or battery vibrating mode, then I can glance at the
display and if it is a call I want to receive, I can excuse myself and
go outside to deal with it. PAT]
