    Manay,
    This what I’ve said earlier….
    To ban cellphone inside the school is a little bit too much but inside the classroom I think is another matter. I guess, it’s quite clear kung ano ang ibig kong sabihin digdi, ano?
    After all, igwa namansigurong kanya kanyang locker angbawat studyante sa school n’yo, diba?If not, as you’ve said, transfering to another school is an option! Case close, isn’t it?

    school cellphone is not option for me but “cellphone etiquette” inside the classroom is
    now if the school wouldn’t even allow me to bring my phone s school…if the option is to transfer be it.
    i guess there is a very big difference b/w cellphone etiquette and cellphone ban?
    when we say cellphone etiquette, you use your phone at the right place and time but we say cellphone ban, means there is no right and place for it.or it is as simple as not having it at all at any of the school premises….correct me if i’m wrong ‘coz that is how i understand school cellphone ban

    I guess, judging from the replies… one should know the answer to your question. But since you want specific answer. Well, YES to cellphone ban inside the classroom. Sabi nga ni Pai Caloy, nakatapos man baga kita na maski wara kitang cellphone nun panahon ni Lapu-Lapu! Yes, it’s now become part of our everyday lives but sometimes it also cost lives, you know! Dae man siguro kita magagadan kung mayo kita nin cellphone for an hour or so?
    Anyway, if cellphone banit’s not an not an option for you then what you gonna do if that’s thepolicy of your school? Are you going to transfer to another school just because of that?

    i’m not into argument or whatever (well i just begin the thread with just a gest of a story from an experience)…i was just asking if you agree to impose “school ban policy” or neither asking if u agree to professor who impose no cellphone policy
    i was just stating my side…as i had said, to impose proper phone etiquette is a “YES” but to ban cellphones from school is not an option for me.
    stick to “school cellphone ban:is it a no or a yes?” a plus ba or a delta?

    The fact that your professor imposed the policy against cellphone inside the classroom. So it doesn’t matter whether you were just holding the cellphone, it was still a violation. After all, holding it was because it was about to slip off from your bag was not a good alibi. You can’t win your argument by that kind of reason!

    barely holding a cellphone does not indicate “cellphone etiquette” violation but holding and using it during classroom discussion is…
    (i was just holding it coz it is about to slip off my bag..)

    The school will employ more security guards if they’re going to ban cellphones, isn’t it? But I think it’s the discretion of any professor if they like to ban cellphone in their class. You see, cellphone inside the classroom is not just annoying but also can be use as a cheating device.

    The fact that your professor caught you holding your cellphone was a clear violation of “Cellphone Etiquette” inside the classroom. To ban cellphone inside the school is a little bit too much but inside the classroom I think is another matter.

    i’m not saying that it is inappropriate or approriate enough to bring cellphones at school…to impose “proper etiquette” about using cellphones is perfectly fine but to ban it from school is defenitely “NO”!

    Hi bebop… reading through the messages from our friends, it seems no one directly agree or disagree of what you thinkisappropriate to bringcellphone in the school. They just pointed out the advantages and disadvantages which serves as guide for us to choose.
    Igwang harong na ipinag babawal ang sapatos or tsinelas sa laog, kaya an lambangsaro bago tumuntong sa laog, hinahali an tsinelas or sapatos bilang respeto sa tag sadiri kan harong.

    Alright, cellphone have become a necessary evil. But despite of convenience and necessity, cellphones are now another means where you can irritate others.

    No problem if you can’t live without cellphone but there is a thing called “Cellphone Etiquette”, isn’t it? You see, it’s annoying if some a#$h*!% spend more time with their cellphones while in a meeting.

    Cellphones makes our life a lot easier. But we need to know when to use it. Meron daw isang Pinoy ang namatay dito sa Saudi ng dahil lang sa pag te-text – nabundol daw ng truck! Hahaha

    ‘the proof of the pudding is in the eating’.
    Parang rule din sa cell phone sa school o saen pa man.
    Though I find it very irritating, lalo na sa simbahan, naka flash na ngani sa screen “Pls turn-off your cell phones”, igwa pa mang guiraray ki mina rrrrrrringgggggg.

    here i go…. during my times, there were no cell phones. i survived being safe (travel time of 18 kms and not much public transportation) and arriving before dinner time.
    its amazing these days – we have all the gadgets to be in touch with our family, close friends, workmates. not bad to put it on silent mode while inside the class……. (prior-hand, we can tell the one who can get annoyed, we need it to hook up with work and or tell in advance our family members and workmates/boss, we wont be able to access at the time when inside the no-cp-activation-zones). ……but when we are given rules to follow, we should follow: No cellphone activations inside hospital ( its not that we disturb patients, its the medical equipment readings that are affected…… no cellphone activations while inside the airplane, not to disturb the navigation frequencies)
    otherwise, enjoy the features of your CP outside where it is allowed. problem is, ingat naman kita sa snatcher. daeng pig piling models……….ka deficil adi? which brings me to another window: tougher punishments for snatchers, holduppers, thieves and the likes.

    it was summer of 2006 when i decided to go back to school and pursue another course
    i was a working student then.i always bring my phone w/ me not just for any personal or what so ever reason but to keep me updated at my work.there was this one time wherein i had a very serious “discussion” w/ one of my proofs.well, she had caught me holding my phone.(i was not using it though but i was holding it coz it almost fell off my bag).
    i definetely opposed on her house rule #1 w/c is “no cell phones allowed”.
    cp’s might b destructive during class discussions but turning it on silent mode will do no harm.
    kmu po…wot do you think?agree or disagree s mga proofs n nagssbing “no cellphones allowed”… or tugot mn dw kmu s school cellphone ban?
