Yes, but I don't get any service.

 Technically they're supposed to be off and put away, but almost everyone just keeps them on silent or vibrate and on their desk.  As long as you're not actually using it at your desk there usually isn't an issue.

Yep, and I can text away and play games on it and do whatever I please.  In fact the company pays for me to have a smart phone.

We're allowed to keep ours and keep the ringers on. Depends on my boss' mood on whether or not he says something to you about talking and/or texting while at our desks.

Yes. It is a company cell phone. The guys in the plant are not allowed to have their phones on them but they can keep them in the break room in their lockers and use them while on break.

This. We can use them on breaks and are never supposed to use them in front of students.

Quoting Babujai:
