Does your school allow you to use your phone during school hours at all? Ours have to be "in our locker." Pshh like people won't steal it...

If you do use it, what do you do with it? (text, play games, im, call, nothing just look cool having a phone out...)
poll didn't want to cooperate, so I guess just answer.


Our school is really strict...they'll take it away the 1st time and your parents have to go get it and the 2nd time you're suspended for 5 days. But I still text in certain classes where the teacher is oblivious or just doesn't care

I can usually just get it out during lesson and answer it. Even though you are not supposed to, all my teachers are relaxed about it.

I dont go to school anymore, but we weren't allowed to have them visible to the teacher. We could however have them in our pockets or bags as long as they were silent. Hell sometimes the teachers would pick up their phone and make a call >_<

We're basically allowed to have them, as long as they aren't out in class and are off/on silent but seeing as the whole building has no signal anyway, they never ring. Everyone brings a phone, no-one really uses it during school time because you have to go outside to get signal.

my 6th form allows mobile phones, though not excessively, like texting in lessons, when your supposed to being doing your damn A levels...
but if its serious, like you desperately need to contact your mum/dad/granny/whatever, more often than not, you'll be allowed.

In lunch we can. It's actually just "electronic devices," so we could get away with bringing a TV and Xbox if we wanted, but I don't go to lunch anyways.

Well then you don't have it after school. You'd have to go home, get your phone, and come back, which is a pretty big inconvenience.

my high school was pretty strict about them. they would take it if they saw you with it.


but at college they dont really care. obviously professors arent going to let you talk during class, but most dont care if you have it out and are texting or something like that.

some care though, but all they can really do is ask you to put it away. they have no authority to take it.

Some people go to friend's houses, or have sports, or stay after for extra help. There's a slew of things people do before they go home after school.

What's the point of a mobile phone if it's the same as a house phone for 5/7 days..most of the day at least.

My parents like me to have my phone with me when I drive and also to call/text if I'll be going somewhere other than home or a friend's house after school. So no, I don't want to leave my phone in my car or at home.

when I was in highschool you got it confiscated if you where seen with it (although they may be a bit more tolerant now as cell phones werent nearly as common when I was in high school) In college most profs would kick you out of the lecture for the day if your phone went off during class.

in my school texts are flying like crazy during classes, but the students have to be crafty with some teachers because they spot it going on and care. I have never had anything come of it though, the teacher usually just tells me to put it away.Most teachers just don't give a ****. One in particular, Mr Koperwas, is so ****ing oblivious. We are Business room for Marketing, which he teaches, and he was helpng this guy beside me with something to do with Excel, and I was playing Donkey Kong Country RIGHT AT THE NEXT COMPUTER, he just didn't ****ing notice.

At college my specific teachers will give the entire class pop quizzes if one persons phone goes off. It's sort of reason to not be the cause of everyone being PO'd.

even teachers can't see under desks AND they don't suspect me. i was a good little boy in year 7-9. now i'm just like any other 16 yr old in the school...
the school is strict on phones though, they will confiscate it if they see one and only give it back with parents present and a formal appology

in my college classes pop quizzes are a gift from god. you finish them in no time and it forces the teachers to teach at a reasonable speed in the remaining 30 min. calculus is just so boring when you learn only one measely thing over two hours. plus in the remaining hour and a half you can just text your friends :P

in short, I wish I had your teachers

In my old high school it used to get comfiscated and you would be given a $100 ticket.

People were still dumb enough to take it. I didn't get my first cell phone until the summer after i graduated, so it was no big deal for me.
#36
in my high school, if you get caught texting, you get crucified.


seriously, first offense: phone taken away til the end of the day
second: call home, parents have to come pick it up
third: fine of some amount.
#37
With my school, as long as it's on vibrate, no one cares. Teachers rarely take it away, and then only if it's gone off in class multiple times. Some of the teachers let you use the calculator on it for tests and whatever. It's up to the discretion of the teacher as to how it's used. But, not even the most tight-assed teacher I have minds if I use it to check the time. Generally, as long as it isn't used while they're talking/teaching, it's fine. Same thing with ipods. Only my math teacher doesn't let us use those.

Yes, I realize that my post was all over the place (:

Edit: I just remembered that in my grade nine science exam last year, about six people's cellphones went off, and they didn't even get taken away
#38
In high school, if your phone goes off the teacher takes it to the office. Since most phones vibrate loud, then if it vibrates it gets taken to the office. We all text anyways, but we put it on silent and we're sneaky.

OFFENSE 1: locked in a safe in the office for 3 days.
OFFENSE 2: locked in a safe in the office for 5 days.
OFFENSE 3: locked in a safe in the office until they think you should get it back.
