Question: Can a player use her cell phone DURING a match???

Do you remember when Maria whipped out her Motorola after winning some tournament and making a phone call? Well, I have a question. Is a player allowed to make a phone call during the changeover? Someone I know claims that it is allowed as long as the umpire determines that the player is not calling her coach. That sounds like BS to me. Can anyone clear it up???

It's a new rule that you can't have any such devices like that.

Is there really any need for a player to use a cell phone during match? What are they going to do make a dentist appointement in the middle of the match.

Or at least making sure the logo is facing the camera so when the TV comes back after commercials, they'll be sure to show said player on the cell phone.
