    The ability to get on the computer with them. Why can't we just use tablets or laptops for those things? We do not need to be so in-tune with those around us. We are always talking to others. When do we ever get time to ourselves?

    Other people talking on them in full voice public.  When I go to a restaurant or even the grocery store, I don't to hear other people's private business while I am taking care of my business.

    The other things that drives me nuts is the fact that people with smartphones and Facebook feel the need to report every single move of their lives for example:

    I am at ihop

    I'm home now

    Watching a movie with family

    Seriously?  Who cares?

    only when people use them when they're having an in-person conversation at the same time.

    I get irritated whenever I see someone walking with their nose glued to the cell phone on a crowded sidewalk, or in a busy parking lot, or crossing the street. Pay attention to your surroundings. Twitter isn't worth your life or the irritation people feel when you bump into them because you're not aware of what's going on.

    Irritating ring tone while watching my favorite movie with my love.

    It disrupt my mood with my love when the person forgets to turn the phone off.

    How do cellphones annoy me?  Let me count the ways:

    - When a cellphone's ringtone is set too loud in a quiet setting.
    - When the owner of the cellphone talks about his embarrassing private matters in loud tones completely oblivious to the fact that there are other people around him.
    - When your callers expect you to be available to them whereever you are and whatever you are doing since you have a cellphone and that's what cellphones are for.
    - When the person you are with talks more to her friend on the cellphone than to you.

    They should be weightless because I really hate carrying them around.  I don't carry a purse, so I end up clutching my silly phone in my hand.

    A few years ago they seemed small.  Now they seem large and clunky.

    Also, they seem to make people ignore each other even when they're right next to each other.  It's too much.

    Cellphones are fine it is the owner who fails to use it appropriately

      So true!  Every single one of my pet peeves about cellphones is about how inconsiderate the owner is.  Guess we are really picking on the wrong thing this time.
