Federal Communications Commission Says No Cell Phone Use On Planes

Lacking sufficient technical information to show cellular phone calls would be safe in flight, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) erred on the side of caution by announcing today that it would not permit use in-flight. This decision was announced today by the FCC after more than two years of studying the issue. The decision is consistent with existing Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) regulations governing the use of mobile phones, laptops, and other electronics equipment by passengers.
