The Federal Communications Commission RE: Docket 04-435
445 12th Street, SW
Washington, DC 20554
Dear FCC Commissioners ,
I am writing to voice my concerns about the FCC's proposal to
relax the restrictions on the use of cell phones on airplanes in
There is no hard evidence that cell phone use doesn't interfere
with navigational instruments. The introduction of cell phone
use in the cabin will not only increase tension among
passengers, it will compromise flight attendants' ability to
maintain order in an emergency. Cell phone use could also enable
terrorists to coordinate a plan of action more effectively.
I personally resent the intrusion and lack of consideration of
others by people using cell phones. And I particularly abhor the
possibility of horrible air crashes that could be caused by
their interference with crew communications in flying the plane.
Cell phones are the worst annoyance in public space since
overloud music for unwitting public consumption.
Please leave the current rules in effect.
