They are legal as Part 22, Part 24, or Part 90 licensed transmitters,
not as Part 15 unlicensed low-power devices. All you need to do is
buy a cellular, PCS, or SMR license and you're good to go. That's not
what they are portrayed as to the consumer, however. The manuals for
these devices claim they are Part 15 compliant. No way.

[TELECOM Digest Editor's Note: But if you buy a cell phone and obtain
service from some carrier, aren't you granted a license (on the
carrier's master license) to use the phone as a transmitter? PAT]
