What types of cell phones are legal for truckers to use behind the wheel?

The FMCSA states that truck drivers can legally use a cell phone while driving if it has an earpiece or if the speakerphone function is being used. It also is legal for the trucker to use voice activated dialing, as well as the hands-free feature. The driver may initiate, answer or terminate a call only by touching a single button.
