Why the fuss over cellphones?

I read so often about the problem of students using cellphones in Thai classes. Although it's not the same everywhere here in New Zealand, its common for phones to have to be checked in at the start of classes and/or some schools either ban them altogether at school or students have to check them in to the office every morning where they're kept until the end of the day. It seems few teachers and schools do this sort of thing in Thailand?
