It is a problem in Brasil. Gangster bosses use prisons as their bureaux 
and organise civil war out of their "cells".

I dont think it is a legal problem, no prisoner has a right to a 
cellphone, this is what prisons are good for, and there are plenty of 
general regulations, that cover cellphones as well, but a problem of 
enforcement. Brasil is a country with many problems, poor policemen with 
big families, cruel prisons etc, and those gangs have also a good side 
for many people. Sort of Robin Hood..

I would start with making "cells" cells, better food for all prisoners 
etc. All prisoners are equal, arent they?
