    So I know there's restrictions when it comes to phones. My question is, what is the policy for phones, facebook, skype, or any other form of communication through your computer such as google hangouts? I also understand that it changes throughout the first two terms, but what is it in those phases? Thank you.

    Well, theoretically, you aren't allowed to Skype call or video chat. But when your door is closed anything goes. So (as a Plebe) after 10PM you can do what you want with your door shut. Phones will be taken during indoc and you will get them on the weekends only (and liberty) until maybe Feb or so if your CTO is nice. If your CTO is not nice, he will keep them in a box until you are recognized as a midshipman. And until then, you will have only weekly calls. You can probably count on getting it back permanently in February. Facebook from your computer is whatever/whenever you want.

    Although I have heard rumors that plebes will not have their doors open all day next year, those are only rumors. I have heard that plebe doors will only have to be open from 0600-1600 rather than 0600-2200 like this year was (is).
