    Hi guys,
    I have just bought the Galaxy S6 and brought it to school for my A-Levels registration yesterday...during the registration process,my Galaxy S6 rang and thus the phone got confiscated...I managed to turn the smartphone off after begging the principal for permission to do so...When I turned off the phone i remember the last battery percentage i read was 68%.

    I asked the principal when the phone will be returned and he said perhaps mid-July but according to other students,the school returns their phone after 6 months so my question is this...

    What will happen after i get back my phone after 6 months? will the phone be corrupted or something else might happen?

    Thanks

    You may have a dead battery (just recharge it) but that's about it - other than having a brand new S6 that's not of any use till 6 months from now
    That's a heck of a penalty, but I guess that's what it takes these days....

    Or... You can hire a attorney and get your property back. Usually it only takes a letter to do so since it wasn't a weapon or you weren't trying to cheat on a exam. It's a new phone and if you are making payments on it they legally can't keep it.

    Call the Police and go get you phone back. In this day and age they can't legally confiscate your property like that. Maybe you are outside of the US?

    Unlawful confiscation is called theft. He has the right to take away during that time, but he can not legally take it until July.

    What a bunch of [language], this is why people in a position of authority do stuff like that, because people like this let them. I'd report his [language] to the police...bottom line

    Site the 4th amendment and if they refuse to give it back, I would take legal action against him

    I know this isn't the forum for this, just commenting on this post.

    That is completely outrageous. If my kid has his brand new, $900 phone taken from him, I'd rip that principal a new one. And this is coming from someone that has the utmost respect for educators (many in my family).

    Yes, my kid would see some consequences, but confiscation should be illegal, if it isn't.

    There are no consequences outside of a dead battery.

    Yup. Just recharge it when you get it back. But damn, that's such a harsh penalty. We're so accustomed to our protective laws here in America we take them for granted. Imagine if a high school principle did that here and refused to give it back? How quick do you think the parents (who paid upwards of $900 for it) would descend on the school with pitch forks? After ten years in the Navy and living in other countries you certainly learn to appreciate what you got back in 'Murica.

    I'm not going to lie friend I'm pretty sure it's illegal to confiscate a phone for that long. I'd be getting your parents to speak to higher authority I would not be standing for such [language]!

    Outside the USA bribery is often an accepted practice. I'd suggest OP to have their parents buy the device back.

    OP, vibrate mode is your friend.

    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.
