Everyone turns it off and puts it in their pocket during the test because LSAT sites don't give you a place to put the damn things. It's one of those rules that everyone knows, everyone breaks, and that's just how it is. I don't know how much sympathy I can give to someone who decides to remove the cell phone battery from the phone during the test. Wow. Sorry for being so harsh. I hope everything works out for you in the long run, but wow, that was a bad, bad idea.
Maybe you should give a little sympathy because YOU are a big enough douche to break the rule as well; the only difference is the OP got caught. I (took twice) never brought a cell phone into the test center, it stayed in my car. I know what you are saying, you don't feel bad for the OP because every other person manages to break the rule and doesn't get caught, so OP you suck because you got caught. You are still a douche. And way to point out the fact that you broke the rule as well, just were cool enough to not get caught. Good one!
I left my cell phone in my car, but I still agree I'm a douche. It's tough being a guy who follows instructions.
I follow instructions too, but I don't criticize those who make honest mistakes. At least the OP attempted -- albeit to his/her demise-- to let the Nazi test admin know that his/she wasn't trying to cheat. I'm glad you admit you're a douche though
The first step to recovery is admitting you have a problem.

It doesn't take a lot of common sense to realize that a lot of people there are going to have phones powered off and in their pockets. That does not give them an added advantage to the test.
Hey genius, if you're taking public transportation and there isn't anywhere in the building to store your phone...maybe you should leave it at home. Now there's a novel idea! And you know that nice little clear ziploc bag you are allowed to bring to the test center? Maybe, just maybe, you could store it in there. Oh, that's right, that would be breaking the rules (no phones in test center remember). So, back to my original comment, you still broke the rule. And the solution? Leave the phone at home. Geez, wasn't that easy?
