There are two primary areas of concern for phone use on planes, and both of
them have demonstrable effects:
1) The potential of interference with onboard avionics, particularly those
designed before 1984.
2) The effect an airborne phone can have on ground systems.

And yes, newer planes and avionics systems are being designed to deal with
this, but there's a lot of older iron flying worldwide.
