SAT, what do I do about my phone?

I know that if you do bring it it has to be off and you can't use it until you finish. The reason I need to bring it is to call someone to pick me up since because of covid the testing center closest to me is closed so I have to go to one who knows where. I am assuming they will have a phone somewhere at the center I could use but I don't think I will have the brain cells to remember anyone's phone number. How do I go about this? I obviously am not going to cheat but I would rather not bring my phone if avoidable. Am i just making a fuss for nothing?

Sorry this is not proofread, i'm currently to confused to think straight.

You can bring your phone just make sure to power it off so you don't get a notification. I've taken 2 PSATs, 1 SAT, and 2 ACTs and have brought a phone to each one and I've never had an issue, just make sure to power it off.

Thanks, everything I read said don't bring it but I think everyone forgot the original purpose of phones was to make calls.

just bring it, im sure theyll understand. just to be safe you can ask the proctor to keep it on their desk, they usually have a box designated for phones/electronics
