In Hamlet, the "to be or not to be" is not about suicide. Hamlet would not be debating suicide here.

In Hamlet, what does "To be or not to be" mean?

It is not possible that Hamlet has motivation or occasion to debate suicide in this soliloquy. He also would not be speaking in a Scottish accent or checking his e-mail.
