    Don't have one; can't get signal over the mountains; don't need one, and it doesn't worry me much whether people want to use one or not.
    Chill, man......

    I have already voted but I want to add a comment. I recall a few years ago a train trip between Florence and Venice on which a young woman carried on a conversation most of the way. She spoke so loudly that she could be heard throughout the entire car. She was so loud that it was difficult to carry on any conversation with traveling companions. I was not interested in her business whatever it was even if it had been in a language I understood. I find that often people on their cell phones are louder than they need to be as though they think the general public will be impressed that they have so much of importance to discuss. Of course, not everyone is so boorish with phones, but since many lack discretion, I think it is better not to have any conversations at all. Is there really anything so drastically important to say or hear that it can't wait until landing? And if there is something so vitally important, what are you going to do about it anyway 30,000 feet in the air?
