The way in which someone is used to pressing buttons on a cell phone.

Right-buttoned: Used to having OK on the right, cancel on the left
Left-buttoned: Used to having OK on the left, cancel on the right

Often when someone has to use a cell phone with the opposite button configuration, great confusion will arise from many accidentally closed screens and inadvertently opened menus.

Derived from "handedness."
John: Hey Jane, can I use your phone real quick?
Jane: Sure, here you go.

...several minutes of frustration later...

John: God dammit, I keep hitting cancel! I'm left-buttoned, I'm not used to OK being on the right!
Jane: ikr? When will they start making the buttonedness the same on all phones?
