July has been deemed National Cell Phone Courtesy Month, but it's not quite clear by who. Jacqueline Whitmore, cell phone etiquette spokesperson for Sprint, stated that personal conversations overheard in public is the most frequent cell phone related complaint she hears. To aid diners, some restaurants are adding special cell phone zones. Still, sometimes the most annoying aspect of a cell phone call is the ring--something not helped by having 40 channels of equally cheesy tones going off in a half-right pattern. If you have a story of an example of poor cell etiquette, let us know by using the comments or Boards.
