Abstract

There are situations where it may be desirable to allow possession of a wireless communication device such as a cellular phone or a pager, but not allow that device to be used during specific periods of time. For example, many schools prohibit students from carrying pagers or cellular phones. However, there are perfectly valid reasons why a student may need to carry a wireless communica- tions device to school so that it may be used before and after school.
