No kidding! They're already fighting like cats and dogs on commercial flights. Too many people having too much to drink apparently. Can you imaging the quagmire with around 100 cell phones active at once? :roll:

I was thinking on this very thing, and now ya know why i`m glad i took the train to Dayton this year instead of flying :). I too hope they nix the cellullar in the air thingy, i can only imagine the mess that would result, all it would take is one loudly-yapping cell talker and all hades would break lose, and you`d have one GNARLY mess...can we say, "air rage"? I say keep the current ban on cellphones in flight, we don`t need the trouble. Besides, whatever it is that ya ABSLOUTELY have to chat about probably can wait till ya reach your destination anyway.

Yeah, and I don't think most cell phones will fit down the toilet.

Just give me data. The voice part of GSM is of no use to me anyway.
