I was traveling last weekend and saw a passenger texting on the sly as the airplane took off. The lady next to us became livid and asked the texter to shut his phone off for safety purposes. This makes me wonder if people really know what the true risks of using electronic devices during takeoff and landing are. The Federal Aviation Administration says it's more of a cautionary step since the effect of the emitted radio signals on aircraft is still uncertain. What about you — would you text if you could get away with it or would you shut your phone down before the takeoff.
