Is it true the only reason you are not allowed to use cell phones on an airplane is to encourage the use of the one in the seat in front of you? Or does it really mess with the plane's navigational equipment? I know you can't get service while in flight, but during taxi? Jetblue evidently doesn't allow it, and an FA got very upset at a man using his phone while we waited to take off last week...
