2. If you are asked to turn over your cell phone by a teacher or administrator, do as they ask and claim it later (check the policy).
3. If your parents insist that you carry the phone, keep it tucked away in your book bag, jacket or purse. Don't take it out in public.
4. Don't use it for cheating on a test or classroom work.
5. Don't use the camera improperly, unethically or immorally.
