Honestly, students have rules for a reason. The non-phone rule is to keep students from being distracted, but that rule doesn't really make a difference, because teachers use their phones all the time during class! When a teacher is on a phone, it can cause him/her to lose awareness of his/her surroundings. When a teacher is distracted on his/her phone, it can cause the teacher to not pay attention to students who need help. If teachers want to look something up so bad, then do it on the chromebook that they were given by the school, because if they're trying to look something up on their phone instead of the chromebook, then its obvious that they're looking up something innapropriate and they're trying to hide it. Plus teachers also text and answer phonecalls during class, and that's super distracting to students. No student wants to hear their teacher talking on the phone instead of helping the student while he/she is trying to work. So i say teachers should NOT be allowed to have their cellphones on during class.
