I can understand why people wouldn't want to be bothered in Church... but what if God is trying to call you??
I had my phone placed in the nursery and I got a number. They would post your number just like a crying infant if you needed to tend to business!
I don't believe they should. The newer phones have applications for the Bible now. I find it easier to carry my Bible in my phone in my pocket than carry an actual Bible (not that I mind carrying one, just easier to fit in your pocket).
Yes, and courthouses, and classrooms, and the roadways...........
Personally, I often turn my phone "off", just because, I value my quiet time more than your demands.
I am not a doctor, a rescue person...................there is NO THING in a life or death situation that I could advise you on..............If I am not available to my staff..............handle it the best you can and tell me about it in the morning.
If it involves the emergency of my parent, my sib can call me at 2 am.......he, hubby and children should be the only ones accepted to interrupt my sleep.
It is horrible, dead quiet in the the church and someone's phone starts playing " Who Let The Dogs Out". What makes it worse is the person picks up and starts chatting away. Maybe banning might make sense, but it penalizes the 99.9 percent of the people that turn off or set the phones to vibrate. Common sense dictates that if your not a doctor or emergency response personnel, you have no right to disrupt or impose your stupidity on others
It 's not the phones that are the problem It is those ignorant people who don't have sense enough to turn their phone off when they go to church. A child can be excused and corrected but how do you correct an adult who should have the sense to know better....that's the scary part! The lack of any common sense and good manners these days is shocking and sad.
Should sinners be banned from church? No, but sin should be. My point is that people should maybe silence their phones or turn them off. Like with any technology there is a time, a place and a proper use. I use my phone for the scriptures and note taking. I also have used it to entertain little children with coloring apps and such. I always silence my cell before I enter the church however.
I think that they should as it is completely disrespectfull to have one and especially answer one in church
If not banned definitely turned off. They are annoying as heck.
I don't mean to sound offensive or anything - but that's a SERIOUSLY dumb thing to consider.
Do you want people to go to the church, or not? Can't there just be a sign up, or possible a song leader or pastor simply say, "please turn your cell phones to vibrate or off" before the service?
No, because what if there was an on-call physician there? I mean, it would be silly to skip church just on the off-chance that a patient would call during the service. And how would that be implemented that anyway - a mass handover of phones at the entrance for anyone who forgot to leave theirs in their car? Or a ban on entering the church if carrying a cellphone - even one that's off? - I don't think Jesus wants to turn people away.
However, I do think that a sign at all entrances to the main sanctuary should say 'Please turn cellphones off or silent or vibrate'. I'm not fond of cellphones ringing either during church, but I think the solution is to make it socially unacceptable to have ringing cellphones in church, instead of a ban on bringing them in.

What are the differences and similarities between types of cellphones - iPhone, Android, Blackberry?Just wondering what features one might have that the others don't and what purposes each serve. Any info is greatly appreciated.

Is cell phone insurance a good idea, or is it just a rip off?
