    I'm flying next month and I'm planning to watch movies with mmplayer so I don't have to watch their lame choices. If I can't do that than I'll hide it and play p-tunes. If they **** me off I'll turn on my phone and steer the plane with my third party app airsteer 1.4 only available for treos.

    I just traveled from Amarillo, TX. to Washington DC and back on Continental. I watched movies the entire trip. On two of the flights all the flight attendants had to say was "I need to get one of those".

    By the way, I watched two full movies on the way. Once we landed in DC, I checked and replied to several emails and listened to several voice mails, returned two calls, and still had 66% battery left.

    FWIW, Delta's Flight Atendant on board manual specifically states that the use of a cell phone in airplane mode IS authorized above 10,000 ft.

It is ridiculous that someone with a laptop with WiFi and all can sit there and do whatever but me with my little Treo in phone off mode can't just watch a movie or listen to music or play a game on it! I agree people shouldn't use the phone on the plane, but with the phone off it should not be prohibited at all!
    Check out messages 196 and 198 of this thread: for a Southwest Splash screen to help while in "air travel safe mode".

    For the first time, the flight attendants announced that phones in airplane mode were allowed, on a United airlines flight I was on last weekend. I heard it on the return trip but not on the way there, so I'm guessing it's a new policy that the employees are starting to learn.
