Unplugging a telephone on Shabbat


Telephone cords are muktzeh, and therefore one may not unplug a telephone on Shabbat, even when it is not in use.

In a case of great need, such as to prevent accidental use of the phone, one may pull the plug with the back of one's hand.

(Rav Moshe Feinstein, Igrot Moshe Orach Chaim 4:40:17)

Have a great day,
