technically the airline mode too is not very effective and if u ask a capt he'd just ask u to keep if off. but yes, since the mobile co. has given us this options u can use ur mobile phone during flight to listen to music u must keep it switched off during take off and landing coz the waves affect the transmission of data and messages from the cockpit to the control tower. fly safe take an iPod with u if possible

The problem is that flight staff are not trained in all the various cell-phones. You may have to show them the actual process of turning it into flight mode. Even so, the captain has final discretion. The problem is that devices such as cell phones have interfered with navigation instruments. It may be an inconvenience, but it is for your safety. This is one of the biggest problems with all in one phones. And also why I keep a small MP3 player in addition to a smart phone.

yeah, but you cant make any calls. You have to disable the signal. If your phone has something called flight mode then you can use your phone to listen to music on the plane. just remember, all electronics must be turned off during take off and landing

Yes you are allowed to bring a mobile phone onto a plane, however it must be turned off at all times during flight and must only be switched back on when instructed to do so upon landing.
