Let's see...

*I can't call the local sheriff to say I'm hurt or someone else was just in an accident.

*My passengers are stuck listening to radio because they can't use Pandora.

*I'm stuck with $200 worth of bluetooth equipment I bought so I could call/text LEGALLY.

*My passengers can't text/call their friends and family.

*AT&T Navigator and Google Navigation are now useless while driving, you know, when I need them.

These are just three reasons this will never happen.

Passengers can and will continue to use their phones while in others vehicles. And there are lots of folks who use their phones as their primary GPS device while driving. And of course, many also use their phones as music players (via Bluetooth or cable interface).

Add to this the whole 911 thing and you'll see that this is nothing but scare tactics to get other legislation passed.

Dont forget the first time a state/city gets sued because someone couldn't call 1-800-grab-dui and that person caused an accident.
