cell phone
in our school were not allowed to have cells phones AT ALL. some people have them any ways and just keep them off in there purses or pockets. some times teachers catch us with them off and take them away.
i think we should be alowed to carry them as long as ther off. some times if we have after school activities and plans change u might have 2 call your parents to inform them. also for people who take the bus, if u miss the bus your gonna need 2 call some one for a ride! and if your waiting at the bus stop and some thing happens you may want to inform some one. and if you need to stay after for what ever reson you should be able to call your parents to tell them!

the only reason schools dont allow cell phone is because, even though the rules say to keep them off at all times, people leave them on and text during class. and if your after school activity is canceled, ask your teacher to let you use their class phone. and, students might hit someone in the head with their phone(happened when i was in fourth grade). I find it unfair too, but live with it.

Agreed. Plus I remember managing perfectly well without a mobile when I was at school; if I missed the bus, I just went back to school and asked to use the phone in the office to call my parents to let them know. Then I just caught the next bus. I'm sure your school will let you do likewise for important things like missing the bus or afterschool activities times; just understand that these rules are in place cuz of stupid people abusing the freedom to have phones, like Hood said, so blame them, not the school.

my school allows phones, but they have to be in your locker and turned off.

my friend had her phone off and in her pocket, but all of a sudden the teacher heard;; "YOU'RE PHONE IS RINGING! ANWSER IT!" and it wasn't even on. she got it confiscated and got ISI for a week.

My school has the same rule, But they don't let us use the Office phones, we have to pay. and the pay phones are always super dirty.
I went in the office on friday and asked to call my mom, I siriously felt like fainting..And she asked, Do you have money. I was like "Huh" and she said too bad. So i went to my locker and called my mom from my cell.
I din't really care if i got in trouble because it wasent my fault, they wouldent let me use the office phone.

So, although were not aloud..We still bring them to school.

I didnt get a mobile phone until year 12.

Same here Mobiles are not allowed in our school unless there is already a phone in the Office and eventhough I am very small to have one..

There are NO payphones in my school; they were disconnected last year, and officially taken out of the walls this year. In any case, the only time you could use them was lunch time, and even then you could barely talk to anyone on it because of how freakin' loud it was. Also, one of the secretaries at my school is extremely obnoxious about who leaves and stays, and she told my mother last week that if I missed anymore days of school by being sick, I'd need a doctor's slip; you need those ONLY IF YOU MISS FIVE OR MORE DAYS OF SCHOOL IN A ROW. Which I have never done, not since elementary school. wtf.

I usually try to go to the second-floor office, but she'll either direct me to the aforementioned secretary or the nurse, who will direct me to the secretary.

I don't have a cell phone, which majorly stinks if something ever happens at school and I can't get home by bus. :|

Like I said, you might think it's unfair, but the rules are in place cuz of selfish, stupid people who took advantage of the school letting you bring your phones in by breaking the rules; so the school was forced to ban phones. Simple as that. Plus, unless your school is planted in the middle of nowhere outside a town, you CAN go into town and use a payphone there. You are very unlikely to be murdered or abducted; don't believe all the crap you read in the papers, towns are no more dangerous than they used to be. I don't believe that the town where your school is has no payphones.
