That's like not being able to eat if you work at a restaurant, you know, cause you stole the food...

All they would have to do is record the serial number of the phone of every employee who wanted to bring their phone into work with them. Doesn't sound like a very nice place to work.

Personally I think it's good that FedEx and UPS have this kind of policy requiring people who handle packages to go through metal detectors inbound and outbound from the workplace. Probably cuts down on theft very effectively.

As for serial number registration- sounds good until you realize there could be 200-400 people going through one detector on the way out of a shift. Stopping the line to check a phone SN would be a logistical problem to say the least.

Use a very hot heating pad that takes batteries and put a heavy blanket on it inside your car. should solve your problem.

this is pretty much why they don't allow phones

A neoprene sleeve will not help at all for 7 hours. Only way to do it without using battery power from your car in to put it in a quality cooler with something warm. Low temps are not going to hurt your phone.
