“Before take off we’re going to need you to power off your beepers, turn off those cassette players, and store your Nano Pets.” Sounds dated? Thats because this list of examples is almost as obsolete as the FAA’s policy banning turned-on portable electronics during flights. Finally, the FAA has issued a new policy that allows for all Portable Electronic Devices to be used “during all phases of flight.” Don’t expect the new policy to take effect right away. Many airlines will have to ensure that their fleets can handle the usage of multiple devices, but the FAA believes that you’ll be able to stay plugged in on all your gadgets by the end of the year. The only exception to this rule is cellphones. While you’ll be able to browsse the Internet, watch a movie, read a book, etc, you won’t be able to use it for voice calls.
