I'd reckon that according to the Laws of the US,  if they could be 
"readily" made to receive cellular telephone signals they couldn't 
be made available for sale in this country.

We don't get a  "free pass"  from complying with the law because we 
can pass an elementary school level examination on theory and 
regulations ( the current technician class "exam" ). 
Unfortunately neither do the manufacturers and dealers of amateur 
radio equipment. 

Shucks !!!    :-)
