All the Bell Atlantic COs I've seen recently have signs banning
cellphone use.

I think this is based on the same decision process that lead to the
ban on cellphones in most commercial airplanes -- some unsustantiated
anecdotes, no testing, and extremely risk-averse executives.  I'm not
aware of any vendor of telecom hardware issuing an advisory that there
are known cases of cellphones causing problems with the equipment.
