Is it allowed in Las Vegas casinos to use mobile phone at the Blackjack tables to check the basic strategy chart? (as far as I know, basic strategy isnít considered a card counting or some way of cheating)

You cant have a phone at a table. Even a friend next to a player. Rarely, they let people break the rule. Dont take it in a bad way. Its a common rule. Idk y.

if you saw the cheating technology people use today that involve a custom phone with a camera in the side that can specifically read each card and tell you each persons hand you would understand

but thats only half of the equation - the other half is getting the marked decks into play if you are at a regulated casino

with the type of stuff i know about i would never trust a home game of anything and putting up with what i think is a fairly rigged shuffler is alot better to me

Agreed. A printed basic strategy card should not be a problem (provided you don't move it around in a way that makes it looks like you're using the card to track the count). However, they can't be sure what you are doing with the phone.

Depends on the casino. One casino I know of allows phones at the tabme games, but I'm in Reno. Just print out a basic strategy cheat sheet and use that instead of your phone.

You should absolutely never use your phone for anything in a casino and here's a VERY simple reason why:

Using your phone constitutes using a device while gambling, which is illegal, and the casino can have you arrested for it on suspicion of cheating. There is literally a law (in every casino state I believe - consult your local lawyer) that legally declares using a device while gambling is illegal.
Playing it correctly means you've already won.
