    Keep your cell phone in a cell phone case. This is because your cell phone turns on when certain buttons are pressed, and you want to avoid having those buttons pressed. Keeping your cell phone in your bag is a bad idea if it doesn't have a cover because your bag will move around, and so will your cell phone. Then, those buttons may be pressed, and your phone could turn on. So make sure your cell phone has a cell phone case.
