Even worse. I've once flown a Russian airline (I'm not naming it here)  
where ALL handheld electronic devices were prohibited. The stewardess,  
indeed, told me that I have to turn my digital camera off! Needless to say  
that convincing the staff that the RF systems in a cell phone can be  
disabled without turning the device off would be missing impossible.
