Flight mode - are we allowed to use it in flight ?
Recently on my flight to Bangkok, I had the opportunity to test out the flight mode; so I happily set into flight mode now. P800 blocked any incoming or outgoing calls. I was looking at the calendar, when the flight steward told me to switch off the handphone. Because P800 looks more like a handphone than a PDA, they insist that we switch it off.
Next time put the headphones on so they can see that its just a PDA. I recently just came from singapore from a convention and on both my flight there and on my way back I used my Clie NR70V to listen to MP3s and transfer notes, nobody bothered me and I was sitting right in front economy seats. This was Philippine airlines though, and on the announcements, I also hear the PDA's and laptop computers may be use on the flight.
Never put off to tomorrow what we can do today.
