Who the fuck turns their phone off anyways?

The ringer volume setting is there to prevent you from having to turn your phone off.  What the hell are all those dingleberries whining about?

Anybody who works or consults in a hospital or medical imaging facility, for one.

One would hope that anyone who works in a hospital is smart enough to work out how to operate their phone without whining about it to all and sundry...

Well we were given to understand yesterday/this morning that the British are masters of implication, so you can hardly blame the rest of us for looking sharply for it from now on.

No, we're masters of implying without anyone *knowing* we're implying, and if you think you see an implication then chances are you're wrong.  If you don't see one, on the other hand, there are probably a couple of dozen...

I turn my phone off all the time, otherwise I'm CONSTANTLY getting calls from hot, underage bisexual female stalkers wanting to share my cock with their girlfriends.

Still, you created the expectation and naturally everyone will think that they're the one who will spot it, so you have only yourselves to blame.

I've yet to see a single doctor actually turn off their phone in the places they're not supposed to use their cell phones.

You'd be surprised knowing how many places in the hospital you can get away with that in.  The trick is to know the places where you really, really can't.

And SOME doctors have cell phones that only work in the hospital itself, and are on some sort of network that doesn't interfere with the equipment somehow.

Spectralink phones, or the really cool Vocera badges.
They run over 802.11, AFAIK.

BT have started selling phones that act like regular GSM/GPRS phones, but when you're at home they automagically switch to 802.11 and run via VOIP.  A neat idea...

We found that cellphones routinely would send loud whining noises through the speakers of the cassette recorders in our classrooms, so we had to insist on them being turned off and not silent.

Well, make sure the students don't use Motorola Razors, someone could take out an eye or something.
