AP521 won't block smart phone access with mac addresss ?

I have strict wireless access criteria and use the Cisco AP521's with mac address filters blocking unauthorized access. I am still having trouble denying smart phone access. What is the prefered method to stop connections ? The mac address filter work perfectly on nic carded devices. My security is "open" due to the nature and requirement of our business and the AP's are turned on and off as needed. I have tested this on my T-Mobile HTC Shadow and even with the mac address blocked, I can still browse thru the access point. Any hints out there ?

This may seem stupid, but are you sure it's not browsing thru it's cellular connection?

Oh yes, I thought of this also and can turn

the ph off and it will still connect to my

business wireless.
