So I was flying home the other day. And as usual - before the flight took off we were asked to turn our cell phones off. Why are we asked to do this? And does it really make a difference to the safety of the flight? The man next to me didn't turn his phone off - he just turned the ringer off. I spent much of the flight trying to decided if I should say something to him. In the end, I did not say anything and we landed safely. But for the future I'd like to know. Thank you.
