Heh, I`ll give `em credit for that. :) It`s hard to keep smiling when you`re yelling, "GET OFF THE PHONE AND LISTEN THE F*** UP!!!"

A friend of mine is a flight attendant (source). There`s actually a very good reason for turning them off.

Attention.

Takeoff and landing are the most dangerous times during a flight, and the flight attendants want you to pay attention to the safety demonstration and what`s happening around you. Of course if they said *that* then everyone would just assume they knew better.

It`s all bull. How many times did a plane crash and the investigators blame it on someone playing candycrush saga

I`m an electronics tech, though I admit I`m not the end-all-be-all of electronic knowledge ... having said that ... I have NEVER believed that cell phone, laptop, walkman or any OTHER usage of an electronic device during takeoff or landing does or even CAN do jack poo to anything the airplane or control tower needs.

IF there were even a one in a BILLION chance of something like that happening, do you think they`d just trust that all the passengers turned off everything like the flight attendant`s told them to, thereby nullifying any chance of "OMG WE`RE GONNA DIE CUZ OF AN iPOD!!!!!!"?

C`mon, millions of people have now removed their shoes because of one failed attempt at a shoe bomb. If there were ANY danger with electronic devices they wouldn`t even let you get any closer to the plane with the damn things than your car in the remote parking lot.

You can now have your cell phone on during take off and landing as long as its in airplane mode in the US.
I flew into Toronto and they claimed "Toronto is not approved for the use of cellular devices"so phones had to be off for landing however this did not apply to take off from Toronto
So somehow LAX can handle cell phones when landing but Toronto can`t?

this has been tested and some electronics do interfere

The FAA actually ruled last year that they`re going to expand to use of electronics on planes, because they found that it doesn`t actually interfere.

so just give it a few years, soon you all won`t be forced to go without your phones for a few hours.
