    When at the movie theater?

    Do you turn your phone completely off, or do you set it to vibrate? Or do you just not care either way?

    Personally I usually just turn off my ringer, and depending on if I'm expecting an important phone call, I'll just set it to vibrate and screen my calls.

    Off. The only person I would be expecting an emergency call from is always in the seat next to me. Everyone else can wait until it's over.

    My phone is 99 % on silent. If its important they can wait on me to call them back. People I know hate it.

    mine phone is always on vibrate i've never actually heard the ringer of my berry. I'll screen a call in a movie theater but i'm known to reply to pins and emails in the movie. I sometimes get alot urgent emails that i need to reply to/ take care of right away.

    Vibe for sure. And I would step out if I thought it was an emergency call. Other than that I'm not answering or replying.

    I keep the profile on my Blackberry set to vibrate. If the call is too important to miss, I will leave the theater to take the call.

    Funny thing about this post is that it reminds me that about a year ago, I noticed that At&t no longer sponsors the amusing ads prior to the movie asking patrons to silence their cell phones (at my local theater at least).

    I always place my phone on vibrate so that I can see who is calling me and if necessary I will leave the theater to call them back.
    Don't make me turn this car around.....

    I'm also with the general consensus. Set on vibrate, screen calls, and call back if important/emergency.

    Vibrate.

    Like others have said, I've never even HEARD the ringtone I have set on my phone. It is never off Silent mode...ever...
    My opinions are my own and do not reflect the opinions of my employer AT&T.
