    I agree... I would call the police and file grand thief charges then sue in court and take the principal and the whole school district to court. Get a lawyer.
    OP is from Malaysia. They have different cultural morays than we do. The punishment could have worse. In the US, if a school, public or private, has a rule, the kids deserve the consequences. If you don't like the rule, work to change it. These schools have to worry about possible illicit activity, criminal or juvenile. Backup topic, no issues to the phone. An hour or so on the rapid charger and back in business.

    This is where things go from bad to worse for the OP. Don't be surprised if he/she is not heard from again.

    I don't think anything will happen to your phone. I'd say it's a bit of a harsh punishment, but trying to call it theft is a bit daft. School policy and conduct are likely all there, and state the consequences. The fact there's no wiggle room is just downright odd, and personally I'd recommend going there with an apology, and not an accusation.

    You did the right thing by being respectful and apologizing. See of your parents can appeal to get it returned sooner.

    I agree, I just think the duration of the confiscation is absurd... especially for something so expensive that you still have to pay bills for those 2 months of no use.

    If they did that in the US, it would be lawsuit city.

    True. He's a minor. Not exactly an expert on Malaysian laws but the rule is not unreasonable.

    If it's off, there still may be some juice left by the time July rolls around. These phones ship with 40% charge and they store them for months like that.
