Silverfox, I am also very familiar with Floridian cellular systems; I have lived in multiple places in the state, from the Urban peninsula to my hometown in the Panhandle.

Silverfox, No, you're missing my point. It's not that SIM cards are a different size, shape, or that the GSM frequency is different (which is true, but can be overcome by the fact you have a triband phone). The issue in the US is that not all networks use GSM. Period. It's like trying to put Mac sof...Jump to post
Silverfox, Bear in mind that, unlike in the UK, not all US cellular networks are compatible. The only prepaid services mentioned above that are GSM services are Go-Phone (AT&T <acronym title="WestJet (Canada)">WS</acronym>) and T-Mobile Pre-Pay. TracFone uses CDMA (completely different) and Virgin M...Jump to post

RE: DFWCapt and the film, "No Highway In the Sky"...

If we're so secure, Cmckeithen, does that mean that we can now have our freedoms and liberties BACK? It would be so nice.

Just to reaffirm many voices on here; I'm not an expert on electronics of this nature (although I do know a fair bit about cell phone technology, but not to this degree), but a lot of evidence has been suggested here to strongly deter the use of cellular phones in airplanes.

Ryefly, Yes, that's the fundamental principle behind this. That makes sense. However, it is also only part of the whole picture.

Yes, labor unions are a problem; but they are not the only cause. They are, perhaps a symptom (or part) of the cause. We are misreading what exactly the "causation" of this trouble, is.
