List of the camps are listed here:

http://sg.news.yahoo.com/servicemen...15-more-camps-from-1-september-160013262.html

Unfortunately my camp is still not a green zone. So troublesome to have a separate phone just for a 2-3 week ICT

Earlier this year I was on an overseas in-camp training trip. Was so looking forward to it as I thought I could do some photography. Unfortunately no cameras was allowed on that trip. needless to say, my iPhone was also on the banned list.

They have a retarded rule of not allowing phones with bigger than 4" screen (based on size of screen????? WTF). Basically only iPhone 5 & Samsung S2 or earlier models.

since they are already allowing camera phones in so many camps, they should just open up the rest (except those really sensitive camps/areas).

I know we should not take our country's security for granted, but if I really want to smuggle a camera into my camp, it's really not that hard ;p

ST article (24 Aug) on this mentioned that screen size restrictions have been removed.

Er.. This is the earlier Green/Red zoning scheme. It's just an addition of the camps with zoning.
There is something new coming soon.

I'm in service and somehow helping out with the new scheme. ;)

Also the fact that it's not possible to enforce. Staff/servicemen/NSFs know how it was never difficult to bring in camera phones undetected.
Most simple method - just bring a non-camera phone as a decoy that you show for inspection when asked.

Nah, I'm pretty sure everyone already knew. It's in line with the you-can-do-anything-but-don't-get-caught policy.;p

What are you gonna do when you're asked to turn it on/off? "Sorry, my phone hanged...":bsmilie:
Chapalang <$50 phone from 7-11 is enough (which I'll continue to use for outfield due to 4-5 day standby batt life).

Yeah, most smart phones cannot last 24h even with minimal usage. So what's the point bringing them to some ulu camps in the jungle? :)

Most of non camera smartphone are quite laggy after awhile as often those have quite lower spec.
Think there a brand name iNO make non camera Android smartphone, some have dual sim card function.
Not those camera phone which removed the camera.
Blackberry has non cam phone too.
