How many mobile phones allowed in a flight?

I have 3 Apple Iphone 7 plus and 1 samsung j7 and 1 Samsung tab. Please tell me if I can carry all of them with me as 1 is office phone and I use other 3 for personal use and Tab for entertainment. I am flying from Singapore to Delhi in Air India. Can someone tell me if it will be allowed with any fine on plane .?

WOW, I agree, too many phones. I find one is quite enough which combines both personal and work.

Get a dual sim phone. You'd cut your number in half.

<<3 for personal use>> Many people have 2 phones, and some maybe 3.

However if you are checked by customs and find 4 phones, I would expect some questions, especially if the 3 IPhones 7 plus are in new conditions or even originally packed.

Security and the airline do not really care, as long as you do not go over the maximum airline restrictions for hand luggage.

I think the guys behind the one way mirrors or those looking at the ctv will take a bit more interest in you with that many phones.

multiple phones says "drug dealer" to me, but maybe that's just me.

You may get some interest from customs after you land in Delhi.

"multiple phones says "drug dealer" to me, but maybe that's just me."

I am trying to think of a non-sinister reason why someone would need 3 personal mobiles, I can't think of one, but I am prepared to be enlightened!

Well my mum who's 90 used to have about 4 or 5 but that's because she kept losing them (at home):)

I know quite a few people who have at least two (I have a work phone and a personal phone)and maybe end up with three but that doesn't mean you end up carrying them all.

I am not a drug dealer btw.
