Should there be an accepted courtesy for cell phone/texting usage? When does it become rude?

For instance, you have a guest and they decide to text their son (no need the kid is 19) and they say it's O.K. because it's family!

Yet in japan it's kosher to text at the dinner table. I say request no cells in your home or presence. I an a texter and constant on my phone worker but I balance my manners. Sadly people expect you to not text or use a device. In today's works it's the same as just talking to someone there. You shouldn't eavesdrop not interrupt so wait your turn or ask for attention. It goes two ways to keep us all in check.

If it is one or two quick texts I would say it is alright, but if they are constantly texting, that would be rude.

If they are a guest in your home, if it is NOT an emergency, it is rude.
