Re: Rules are off target

Good luck actually making a call at 30k+ feet in the air. It just won't happen. Unless the airline deliberately puts picocells in the aircraft to accomplish it. Just for shits and giggles, try turning off airplane mode inflight and see what happens to your signal. 1 bar or less and constantly going in and out of service. Have tried myself. Sometimes don't even get a time update from the cell towers when traversing time zones.

I swear, some people should have pace-makers installed to free up the resources. Breathing and heart beat taxes their whole system, all of their brain cells wasted on life support.-two bit brains, and the second bit is wasted on parity! ~head_spaz

Near future may change that
As the airlines roll out inflight internet access, they could potentially add micro cells - cellular to net devices - if FAA would allow it
