can the police take my cell phone if they are investigating a crime

The police can take your cell phone when they're investigating a crime. If the cell phone is not part of the crime, they have no right to search it. However, if the cell phone is part of the crime, they will go and get a warrant and search it. Without a warrant, it would be an illegal search.
