I noticed recently that I've gone to leaving my cell phone on vibrate almost all the time.   It seems as if I'm either in meetings where the phone has to stay quiet, or else my mp3 ringtones aren't loud enough to hear over all the other background noise at my office.  I'm less likely to miss a call when my phone's on vibrate.

I'm curious as to how many other folks here leave their phones on vibrate all the time as well? 

How about you?

I'd prefer to leave mine on the dresser at home.

I've often called mine my leash, Rhonda got it for me, I tend to lose my kitchen pass for a few days after getting caught doing that  Embarrassed

I used to set mine to ring & vibrate, often felt it before I heard it. Not too often do I have to silence it since I don't get calls after hours or when I'm with Rhonda.

I'm still in the Stone Age - a cell phone virgin. That must be just about an extinct species.

I've been carrying a pager or phone for 15 years and the only time I ever turn on the ringer is when I'm using the thing as an alarm clock while traveling.

One of the disappointments of the iPhone is it's buzzer. Weak for such a big device.

Off in movie theaters, otherwise set at high volume. One Ping.   

Vibrate doesn't work for me.... if I am crawling around desks, PCs, servers, I tend to take  phone/MP3 player/flashlight off.

Depending on how torqued the security is, I expect any phone with a camera could be considered for the leave at home list.  Fair trade-off if you get air time in the company's black helicopters   Roll Eyes  Wink

My co-worker has a pen with an embedded jump drive, let me know if you are in the market.  You are on your own on the trench coat.  Cheesy
