With technology today you would think my phone would know that I am in an interview

I would tell you nothing because I should have turned it off during our meeting.

"Oh, excuse me". ( pulls phone from pocket, remove battery, put it back on pocket) .. look the person in the eyes and say " im sorry about that". moves on.

Sorry for the interruption, a silent mode failure, if it would be a biomedical engineering problem I would have fixed it right away - then take off the battery.

I would say it's a miracle, because I always power my phone completely off. Either I need it, or I don't. I see no purpose in "silence"; that's just saying "I'll listen to you until someone more important makes it vibrate."

I've actually had that happen before... the phone was off, yet made a ring via some kind of crazy glitch. I was in church. It was NOT a miracle.

Lol love the parole officer and the batman answers. Awesome. Also, who owns a phone with a removable battery anymore?

"I'm sorry for the noise, if it truly disturbs you. I was being chased by the Klingon's, and lost them in a wormhole. My Transponder must have reset itself to the original factory settings".

"I assumed this phone would work the way it was supposed to, as I DID put it on silent. Too bad, faulty technology". Remove battery, continue.

I'd look guiltly as all get-out, take the battery out, and set it on the desk and continue with the interview.

I need a pay rise for a new phone since the current one is not functioning as it should.

"Sorry, it is an everyday alarm for medicine." I'm sure this is going to work bcoz cell phone alarms do ring even if the cell phone is in silent mode.

i would say the interviwer , "See, the phone rang even if it was on silent mode! This is why you should hire me soon."

Oh, it's probably the President. I'll call him back later. Shut phone off and say "Please continue with what you were saying, he won't be interrupting us again. (Everyone, even the interviewer has the concern that their phone will go off at an inappropriate time. You can turn this into a plus if you don't panic and come up with some lie or explanation. He will of course know that you don't know the president and will take it as a joke rather than a lame excuse. It will also sub-consciouslly show him that your conversation with him is the most important thing at the moment.)

I would say that God is calling, and I should probably answer it

I'd check my phone, turn it off, and say, "I apologize" then continue with the interview without further explanation. The important thing is not to get flustered or make a bigger deal of the incident than is necessary. It has happened to everyone. No point in wasting time after the initial apology or annoying anyone further with unnecessary explanations. If the interviewer wants further explanation, s/he can ask.

I'd tell you that I must have forgotten it in my haste to be on time, and apologize profusely, while removing the battery. There's no need to stammer trying to explain that I turned it to silent, and the phone didn't work, who's going to believe that? I'd look like someone who didn't know how to work their own phone, at best - or worse a liar! Take the blame and own up, everybody makes mistakes.
