    Not true. When my dad was in hospital a while back, there were detectors at the main entrance which would scream if you had a phone on, regardless of what it was doing (and this was pre-smartphones).

    Detectors would, of course, rely on the phone being turned on so unless you put one in every classroom, they wouldn't stop people turning them on and off as needed.

    Certainly true.

    In which case, that would be illegal interception of communications and possibly interference as well as it wouldn't be a legitimate cell operating on that frequency.
