    Why or Why nor?

    Only if it is an emergency.  Otherwise I believe it is rude to talk to someone electronically when there is someone sitting there trying to talk to you in person.  It is proper etiquette to give the person you're with your undivided and total attention.

    Never!!!! It is extremely rude and shows an incredible lack of respect for those you are with.

    i like the mute key on my cell, pressing which, i instruct my phone's ring tone to just shut up.

    But I've seen many people attending their phones when even someone is talking to them. Seems pretty insulting and rude to me.

    I don't see why not. If I feel that it's going to be a long phone conversation, I will either walk away and talk somewhere else or tell the caller that I will call him/her back. But of course, it would be better to have the phone in silence during the meal.
