Replying to: Re: Airplane vs. MP3 by vpu2
I was under the impression that the cell radios would interfere with the plane/tower communication, which would mainly be affected in the 0 - 3k ft range, hence why you can't use a CD player or GameBoy until they hit "cruising altitude." Now, keep in mind that the cell phone rules came out around the time of Analog, which was terrible for giving off interference, so I suspect that the FCC is just lazy in doing more research on the subject.
