    The flight attendant will tell you to do it.

    Seriously though; why is it so hard for people to follow basic instructions? I've lost count on how many flights people were still talking on their phones as the plane was on the runway getting ready for take off. Do they think the rules dont apply to them?

      On a flight from Portugal to Marseille I sat across this absolute unit of a gorilla and he refused to stop talking on his phone before takeoff. Actually delayed our departure by 30 minutes because three stewardesses and half the cabin were telling him to hang up the fricking phone.

            most Wi-Fi on board systems are primitive and only look at device IPs after a while for authorization to keep overhead low on its system. It may take a few times switching IP addresses until you find someone's IP that paid but you will find one.

    Nothing. I've never fastened the seat belt or turned on flight mode, and have never been pestered about it even when I make it super obvious. It's all a big joke and the flight attendants will make jokes about it behind your back if they see you immediately b***h out to their bullshit.

    When I was landing one time, it was extremely foggy, wet, and dark. It was a fairly old airplane and the crew told everyone to turn off all electrical devices, they went by individually. So maybe in those circumstances it could have an effect but I imagine 99.9% of the time it doesn't matter. Still, wouldn't wanna be on the 0.1% plane where it does.

        Joking aside, I really have never gotten into trouble for this on over a dozen flights now. I suspect it may have to do something with me being perpetually uncomfortable and looking like I'm always one minute away from becoming an hero on any flight I'm on. I hate flying.

        I switch it to airplane mode even before boarding. The battery lasts way longer, and I have a lot of offline audio saved anyway.
        I know people like those buttholes who posted before you don't care, but like in some extremely rare situations pilots do have to rely on mobile phone communications, and you don't want any interference with those. You simply never know when you'll get into that rare case when your pilot needs to use their phone.
        If you've ever been to any big event where the organizers haven't prepared extra cell phone towers, you know how much just one phone messing with signals can potentially matter.
        It's not like they're confiscating your phone like on North Korean trains, so why not save your battery?

    From 0-10k ft your phone still works, which unravels the israelite trick that tells everyone that the earth is round. After 30k ft you can turn off Airplane mode and at that elevation you don't have a signal since satellites are parrallel to the side of the plate.

    Because everyone here is larping here’s a real answer:
    Nothing happens, because cell reception doesn’t exist above a few hundred meters (most cell towers target a broader area instead of a higher altitude) you will just lose signal.
    In shities like Dubai or NYC you have signal until a bit higher but it too disappears after a while.
    Some planes have their own service that they switch on around the time that the seatbelt light goes off, then it’ll just cost you a lot to use data because it’s there to scam you.
    TLDR: doesn’t matter, there’s no signal in 99% of cases.

      This. Cell phones are functionally a very low power half of a two part system - the other half being the cell tower, which you leave behind when you gain altitude. They aren't going to interfere with anything.

      Lmao you mong, a pilot cannot use their phone on an airplane because there is no cell signal on an airplane

        Right before landing. When their headsets or radio equipment is fricked. There were cases when they called the tower on their phone cause the radio was fricked. Not on cruising level, duh.

      Oh yeah? Then how did 9/11 victims send their loved ones text messages before the plane crashed?

        You can google this but in 2001, especially in rural areas, some cell towers weren’t set up for land area but just signal strength. This made it possible for some messages to be sent as one of the planes flew fairly low at around 2400m.
        All the calls you know about were made using the in-plane satellite phones though.
        On your next flight, leave airplane mode off and see your reception disappear after a few seconds.

    Radio wave interference with the equipment. Unlikely to be an issue with one phone but if everyone on the flight ignored it, you could see problems.

    It sits there for hours trying to find a signal. During takeoff there might be some bizarre set of circumstances that allows it to interfere with radio transmission between pilots and ATC, but realistically that would never happen.

    I heard somewhere that having your phone on causes that doot-do-do-doot-do-doot-do-doot interference noise through the pilots headphones.

    Like when you have your phone near a set of old pc speakers.

    Airplane mode literally doesn't matter. I never turn my phone off. It's the same as being told not to use phones at the gasoline pump despite there never being any incidents.

      I remember having to stay in hospital wen I was a kid and they said no mobile phones were allowed in 'because it can interfere with the equipment', so I guess the plane crashes if you don't switch it to airplane mode

      It's really just a matter of technology changing faster than the laws.

      If it were decades ago, it would've been true that electronic devices could pose some kind of hazard to planes & gas pumps. Technology has since evolved enough to no longer pose those risks. They just neglected to update the laws, which is why you're still reminded at every flight, and why gas stations still have signs posted. Nothing bad will actually happen, but they still have to warn you out of legal obligation.

    There’s an almost completely theoretical argument that numerous active cellphones in a small area could potentially interfere with radio-dependent avionics; plane GPS systems have also been identified as potentially vulnerable to getting compromised by a bunch of phones searching for signals and reusing frequencies. In practice, however, there’s no evidence of this actually happening.

    It doesnt matter. You can turn on airplane mode but windows 10 will secretly turn it back on to download updates without your consent. If this actually posed a danger airlines would ban Windows devices from their flights.
