So I just got back from California. And on 3 of my 4 flights (no direct connections for me!), people around me had their cell phones on (and using them) well after the doors were closed - one guy answered his phone as we were barreling down the runway for take off. I've always thought (maybe naively) that cell phones interfered with FAA signals. Is this true? Are people putting others' lives in danger when they don't abide by this one simple rule? Am I over analyzing things? I love to fly, but this has become a major pet peeve!
