Here in Venezuela mobile phone use is banned inside banks for "security reasons" I was wondering if this happens only here in Venezuela or elsewhere around the world...

Thanks for the replies!

Nope

They should be banned more places than they are.

They are banned on our bank call centre. Even in the break area we are not allowed to use them. Apparently, you could be using them to text someone some personal details on a customer. So, what happened to using paper and pen to write down details and take them out the office? (which is more a security risk than texting).

I had a temp position at a bank call center last year and mobile phones were banned there. But the public is free to use them inside banks.

Here the public cannot use mobile phones. If your phone rings while inside a bank, a security guard will escort you outside...

Not sure if it applies everywhere in Europe, but the usage of cellphones is prohibited in all or certain parts of hospitals.
Simply a matter of possible "potential" interference with medical equipment.

Here in Oz, you can't use a cellphone in Hospitals (except the general area or something, because it interferes with medical equipment), Post Offices and certain Banks. But I've seen people ignoring all the rules and chatting away loudly...idiots.

A simple answer....no. The only places cellphones are banned in New Zealand are Hospitals, and public changing rooms

Cell phones are definately not banned in banks here, neither for customers nor employees. They're ok in the post office as well. As mentioned earlier, many hospitals don't allow the use of them outside of waiting areas.

They are banned in banks in England as far as i know - always reminds me of the opening of Pulp Fiction where Tim Roth explains that someone held a bank up with a mobile!!!!

They are banned in banks here although no one takes any notice, like with most rules in this country.

Not so far. Here in California, banning cell phones would require having them surgically removed from people's skulls.

It is banned here in Italy because it can interfere with the metal detector at the entrance of all banks.

Some trains here have a special coach which forbids the use of mobiles, I think it's only on First (ironic name) Great Western services though.

Not allowed to use them in several parts of hospitals though.

It would really be nice if they could ban them from places like Busses (It's not funny when some dumbass shows his new ringtone for 20 minutes whilst stuck in traffic - Good job it wasn't that damned frog).

are you kidding me....Turkey confuses me more and more each day...get this

with only 1/3 of the population well off enough to buy food and bread, there are 68 million people in Turkey, and 35 million cell phones! HOLY COW! And 85% of those 35 million cell phones are prepaid users. I mean....seriously...sometimes you see people here like poorer class, living in a tiny house, ande they've spent all their money on a couple of Nokia 6600s..... It just worries me a lot, my grandfather says the world and turkey are prducing more and more degenerates, and the population is becoming stupider. I guess image is becoming more important as we go along.

as for the bank thing, yeah right! the security guards here in Turkey use their cell phones because they have nothing to do. You can see them text messaging while sitting at their little desks....

Aydin,

Here is (at least) an area were we beat you clean and straight....  Big grin
Population: 11 million Number of cellphone subscriptions 13.5 million
Cellphone "penetration": 123%

The only cause for suicide here is when a local lost his cellphones on a Saturday after 15:00. (..shops close)

Cell phones are banned in Peru's banks. I think it has to do with the notion that you can plan a robbery using a cell phone. There are no facts or statistics to support any ban on cell phones but you know how our countries are.
As far as the high number of cell phones in poor countries, it's the same story in Peru. Getting a landline is extremely expensive and, in many cases, impossible since the phone company has no lines reaching the poorer areas. People who drive taxis in Lima, for example, now have a "contact" number to do business. So, a cell phone becomes a lifeline. With the prepaid system, it's even affordable. And in Peru, the caller pays for the call so a cell phone user doesn't waste minutes if they receive a call, only if they make it. So you can call the taxi driver a hundred times and they don't waste their minutes.
