Do you play games on your phone or with your PDA or other technology devices when you are in public transport or in public? I took subway to work this morning and found that 3 people around me were playing with their phones. What about you? What do you usually play?

Whenever I am in public, I restrain myself from playing with my phone or other gadgets simply because in my country "snatchers" are prone to jump out from nowhere and steal it right out of your hand. If I think the place is safe, I feel bored... I think would play with it. :)

Hello wondericequeen, I don't play games on my phone and I am not a tech person. I only use my phone to make and receive calls. I seldom use it for other purposes as I am very slow in learning the latest technology available.

I am saving up for a nintendo DS, and once I have it I am planning on taking it with me when I have a longer traveltime (more than half an hour or so). Usually I just listen to music, but I love braintraining and simple games aswell. I am not sure I would be able to do so without getting an headache, as I usually get when trying to read on a way of public transport or in a car, but that is something only time can tell.

I don't like to make calls or play music but yes I will check for text messages and e-mails when in a public place. I will do quiet things with my smart phone, yes.

Yes, I am this kind of person. I don't want to waste the time by waiting and letting the time goes by in vain. So I must do something when I am idle. Usually I will watch movies from my cellphone. I don't often play games by my cellphone as the time isn't enough. I don't want to have breaks all the time. I love China

I used to play a lot more with my cell then I found out low battery is not fun, so now I just listen to my ipod shuffle when I am that bored.

I don't know why but I get really embarrased playing with my phone in public! Everyone does it these days, but I still feel like everyone is staring at me and wondering what I am doing if I sit and play a game in public! I will play games on them when at home but that's about it!

Yes i will play games on my phone when i am in public when i feel bored.But i m sad to say my phone does not support all games.I can only play cricket and sudoku the preinstalled games in the phone.I am planning to buy a phone that supports games so i can have a collection of games and play it if i'm bored.

If I'm really bored, I would just play a bit of Snake3D on my mobile phone. Most of the time I just listen to music with my Ipod or walkman.
