mobile phones in Burma

Jump to last reply

On another site, one in which a Burmese travel agency provides preparation advice for a Burma trip, it states that mobile phones are NOT allowed in Burma? According to this site, visitors must report if they have one and must leave it with officials at the airport. It will be returned when one leaves the country. The preparation information was from 2011, and I believe it's the first time I've seen it. Does anyone know more about it? Is it accurate? Is the prohibition of mobile phones still in effect?If so, do smart phones fall within this category? I've just asked MM Din at Santa Maria, but may not hear back for a day or two, although he has, in general, been extremely prompt in getting back to me.
