Re: Airplane vs. MP3
Turning the phone off is a way around the regulation. The rule asks you to turn it off so that there is no communication between the phone and the network.
By not having it ring - you arent stopping communication. For instance you could still receive messages (SMS) from the network.
So as per the regulation - that is still unsafe.
Now whether they really need to stop communication or not is a completely different argument all together
