  • We've all been there.


    You think you're phone's turned off, or at least in silent mode, only to have your mariachi ringtone go off in the middle of a movie, a speech, or at work.


    But unless you've been yelled at by Hugh Jackman, chastised by the President, or have otherwise had your mortification bandied about YouTube, it can't be as bad as these cellphone ringer fails.


    Here we bring you the top 5 biggest cellphone interruptions ever caught on film. Some a cringe-inducing and awkward, while others are hilarious, but all pretty epic. Enjoy!


    5. Alizé Cornet's tennis match interruption


    In a tennis match against Caroline Wozniacki, Alizé Cornet's concentration is broken by a ringing phone as she prepares to serve. The kicker? It's her own!



    4. Hugh Jackman freaks at ringing phone during live performance


    During a live performance in a Broadway play, Hugh Jackman and a castmate are interrupted by a cellphone. Obviously annoyed, Jackman breaks character and calls out the rudeness off the offender. Oops!



    3. Darren Criss' own phone halts live concert


    It's always embarrassing to have your phone go off during a live concert, but just imagine how you'd feel if you were the one performing.


    That's exactly what happens to Darren Criss in this video of him performing Katy Perry's Teenage Dream. Wait for Criss' reaction at 1:20.



    2. Obama responds to "duck ringtone" interruption


    It's Obama versus a duck in this one. While giving a televised speech, the President is distracted by a quacking cellphone, and his reaction is priceless:


    "Where do you guys get these ringtones, by the way?" he quips as his audience laughs.



    1. Best ever response to a cellphone interruption.


    This could very well be the best reaction a performer has ever given to a cellphone interruption.


    The violinist in this video keeps his cool after being interrupted not once, but twice, by a pretty loud Nokia ringtone. Just watch it, we don't want to give away the rest.

  • Ashton Kutcher snaps a self-portrait on his new iPhone 5

     


    Not so long ago, when celebrities made an appearance on the red carpet, the talk was of the gorgeous date they had on their arm. But of late, the talk's more likely to be about the new gadget they've got in their hand.


    These days, smartphones are celebrities in their own right. And even in paparazzi shots of famous actors and musicians, they often steal the spotlight. So, which devices have the biggest claim to fame, and what A-listers are using them these days?


    Pure Mobile took a dive into the glitz, the glamor, and the hardware and found out which smartphones stole the lead roles and which have been given bit parts.

    BlackBerry and iPhone – in all its incarnations – seem to be the top celeb cellphone choices.


    Apple not only claims a VIP user-base including Jessica Alba, Brad Pitt, George Clooney, Justin Bieber and many more, it's also among the leaders in smartphone market share period. And it just stands to reason that, if millions of ordinary people are dying for the iPhone 5, celebrities might want one too.


    Sure enough, Ashton Kutcher already using one. And Brad Pitt brought his out at Cannes to snap pictures of the event. We can only wonder when pal George Clooney will upgrade from his iPhone 4 so as not to be outdone.

    But while Apple's iPhone is a smash hit outside of Hollywood, BlackBerry maker RIM has been steadily slowing its user growth. Still, that doesn't seem to have affected its popularity amongst actors, celebutantes and other popular figures.


    Not content with using just an iPhone, Kim Kardashian uses a BlackBerry as well, and sometimes uses both at once. Geez, we didn't know she was even able to formulate two thoughts at the same time!

    Eva Longoria does a walk and talk on her BlackBerry

     


    Eva Longoria also loves her BlackBerry, as do Snoop Dogg (err, Lion), Lady Gaga and Justin Timberlake – all three like to Tweet from a BlackBerrys. So, even though BlackBerry has lost some of its regular audience to Apple and Samsung, it's still one of the top two in Tinseltown.

    It's pretty much the opposite case with Samsung. Though the smartphone maker is perhaps Apple's biggest rival these days, the few results we got when searching for celebrities with Samsung devices – like the Galaxy Note or Galaxy S III – were actually from events held or promoted by Samsung.


    Sure Ashley Simpson has been spotted with one, but when's the last time anyone even cared she existed? And the Victoria's Secret models shown with the Galaxy Note (above) were actually hired to promote the device.


    Guess whose famous hands are holding this BlackBerry

     


    But who can claim the most famous user? Sure, the word "famous" is subjective, but most would agree that a figure who's known by nearly everyone in nearly every country, has influence on the world stage, and who is important enough to interrupt any T.V. show on any channel whenever he feels like addressing the press would be top choice.


    Yep, we're talking about the President. BlackBerry has scored possibly the most illustrious user a smartphone maker could ever hope for with Barack Obama.


    But it isn't just that President Obama uses a BlackBerry, he absolutely loves it! He's been described as a BlackBerry addict, and actually fought for the right to keep his "CrackBerry" once in office.


    Yes, president Obama has been described as a BlackBerry addict

     


    "They’re going to pry it out of my hands," the New York Times cited him as saying around the time that aides were trying to take it away. He's since been allowed to keep his beloved smartphone, though it had to go through White House encryption standards.


    Also, there's little chance that the President could ever be wooed by Apple. The Washington Times reported that, when handed an iPhone by an aide on the campaign trail last month, he looked "befuddled."


    Obama seemed unused to the device, saying "Oh, I got to dial it in. Hold on, hold on. I can do this. See, I still have a BlackBerry."
