Your wife has a NEW cell phone? I have yet to get my first one. I really do not like to be that in touch with the rest of the world. I have only grudgingly moved to a simple beeper so my wife can get hold of me in case of an emergency.
I also believe that all theatres, opera houses, symphony venues, etc should have about 100 old cell phones on hand. If anyone in the audience has a cell phone go off during a performance they are dragged outside and held untill after the show. The first one hundred people who exit after the performance are then given one of the old phones to "stone" the offender with.
