You probably see it posted on the pumps, not to use your cell phone while pumping gas, but how many of you actually obey those warnings?

It's NOT stupid NOR dangerous. That idea is based on myth. Pure myth. I still can't believe people believe that a cellphone can cause an fire just by talking on it. If that were the case why don't airplanes blow up because the pilots transmit and receive on VHF (very high frequency), next to other planes on the ramp refueling?

"There are confirmed cases of cell phones creating a condition that could ignite fuel vapor.. So no.. I don't use it and discourage others also.
It's rare... but really.. do YOU want to be the next statistic?"

No, there's no confirmed cases of a cell phone creating a condition that could ignite fuel vapor. If you're talking about a phone battery overheating, that can happen when you left it in the car...but so can your car battery...but USE of a cellphone has never been recorded to have caused fuel vapor to ignite. http://www.snopes.com/autos/hazards/gasvapor.asp

So there's no worry about being the "next statistic." If you are, then unhook your vehicle battery when you get gas.
