Just wait for your turn, and when they call your name, speak up quickly like they startled you and yell," Guilty! Oh, I'm sorry, what was the question?"
You'll be out in no time. LMAO ;)

congrats on being the 2nd eic member to experience the iPhone from jury duty. It made my experience a breeze. If you get stuck in the waiting room for hours like I did. Just EIC all day

Well, it's about 10:40, and I brought up some breakfast from the cafeteria. It consisted of corned beef hash (I think), a couple of sausages from some bland and unknown species of animal, a cinnamon roll and a caffeine-free Pepsi.

To be fair, the folks who work here have gone out of their way to make us comfortable, and they're extremely polite. The judge? Who knows...

The judge I had was extremely nice.. I was cracking jokes about us waiting and only getting paid $5 a day... he drew lots of laughs.. they are down to earth, but when it is time to get serious regarding picking a jury, they can be tough.. It took me some time to convince them that I was not fit for the case

I just had jury duty about a month ago, but here in Philly, you cannot take your phone (any phone) past the metal detectors. They could care less that the iPhone is also an iPod... as long as it can receive calls, it gets checked in and you pick it up once your dismissed for the day.

And the going rate here is $9 per day.

I spent my civic duty here on my MB :laugh2:

I would of said fine im not going... or I would of stuck it in my underwear hoping alarm would not go off... How can they say no cell phones allowed... In this day of age it is needed what if there is an emergency and you are trying to be contacted...

pop some alka seltzer and fake a seizure.

If that fails, make sure you're jailbroken. I forget on your status.
