If you received a 1225(c) ticket, the officer is accusing you of actually making a phone call while driving.

For 1225(d) tickets, it is irrelevant whether you were actually on a call. If you were texting or using an app, you can be given a 1225(d) ticket.  You can receive a ticket for VTL 1225(d) for using other electronic devices including an MP3 player or GPS.
