I agree that cell phones are annoying, but to be "banned" is a bit much. They should DEFINITELY be turned to "silent" or beep ONCE and QUIETLY when there is a call, and should ONLY be on for emergencies in the first place! Many restaurants have payphones if you need to make a call, so you don't NEED the cell phone, except for emergencies anyhow in a restaurant. And hearing the annoying "take me out to the ballgame" song in digital tone at the highest possible volume and hearing it OVER AND OVER again till the idiot who it belongs to FINALLY hears their own phone ring and then YELL above the restaurant noise is ridiculous. I have almost walked out of a restaurant SEVERAL times because of this. I have a cell phone, and I do bring it with me, but it's because of emergencies or military recall ONLY and the ringer is always OFF when in a restaurant, and I have enough manners to walk outside or whisper when a call comes in that has to be answered. Wish others had the same manners.
: I hate cell phones in restaurants!!! they should be banned!!
