Incident: Southwest B733 near El Paso on Sep 5th 2011, unruly passenger

Interesting - the following types of responses seem typical:
1. I hate people, so they should be punished and I hate people. ( catbutt, etc. )
2. I do not want to hear other people, and I am ignorant of the invention of headphones, earplugs, or discipline. Since I do not want the person next to me talking, and I can not afford 1st class, NO ONE ON THE PLANE MAY HAVE ANY DEVICE TURNED ON.
I am too ignorant to know that you can not make a phone call from a kindle, so the hell with everyone else but me.
3.I don't know the difference between the FCC the FAA nor the difference between a rule and the law of the land. I will post some garbage, because my opinion is important and I am wise.
4. Americans should not be arrested and beaten for failing to follow a rule that any educated individual knows is about to be overturned, because the rule is bad. Electronic devices do not in fact interfere with navigation or communication equipment on commercial airliners.

DS, it really doesn't matter what You think or what anyone thinks, the law is the law, it doesn't matter if you agree with it or not you just have to obey it, thats it.
As for the interference it has not been proved that it does not affect, so in the mean time, just don't risk it and you should be fine

How should I behave on board an aircraft?
Passengers should not use threatening, abusive or insulting language, or behave in a threatening, abusive, insulting or disorderly manner on board an aircraft. Passengers must not interfere with pilots or cabin crew in the performance of their duties, interfere with aircraft equipment, or disobey any instructions given by a member of the aircraft crew. If passengers do not comply with these requirements, they may be issued with an infingement notice or prosecuted.
Flying isn't just about getting a plane up and down in the air;It's about having an awareness of all regulations and law that govern the practice. As a trained ppl pilot you should know this.With all due respect,your comments leave little to be desired for your ppl status and I would suggest a retrun to flight school for you if you still think you are right on this issue..

I wish we had this in Ryanair, would be calling police after every single landing, especially on italian flights :-)The "best" part is them - pointing with the cell phone close to ur face, that they are havinī an INFLIGHT MODE, so why the hell, I am asking them to turn it off...

Don't know if the prohibition is against FCC rules or not, but it is definitely against FAA rules. Fact is, the FAA has neither the time nor resources (and if the teabaggers have their way, they'll have a whole lot less of both) to test every phone that comes out every other month. Thus the blanket prohibition. Personally, I don't give a blistering hoot whether or not it actually interferes with the operation of an aircraft. Fact is, it hasn't been proven that it doesn't. So you don't want to pay for the seatback phones? Here's a suggestion: read a book. What you're calling about, who you're calling, and who you are certainly don't warrant risking an airplane full of innocent (I'm not going into their individual personal lives) people. Wait until you land, or buck up and pay for the tested technology. Otherwise STFU and GTFA.

Its not just an airline rule, its a FCC rule
Try Googling "Wireless Devices on Airplanes"

I don't know if I'm more annoyed by the fact that I get to the bottom of the comments and AVherald is telling me that they are "TRACKING ME" or that they just arrested a man for having his cell phone on.
Regardless of SW_Pilot's opinion, this guy was in no way interfering with a flight crew. He was sitting in a seat disobeying an airline rule - ban him from flying with your airline if you want to punish him. You don't take away his freedom! Both the airline and the EPPD overstepped their bounds here.
I am a private pilot, cell phones do not interfere with the plane's ability to fly, navigation instruments, or communication instruments in any way, BUT I love the rule because I couldn't imagine being crammed on an airplane with dozens of other passengers while being held hostage by their phone conversations.
And, track me? Come on Big Sis! Last time I come to this site.

I agree with Sw_pilot as well. Some people have an overblown sense of self entitlement that needs to be curtailed.
This passenger is a prime example.
Arrested for this?

I fully agree with Sw_pilot! Some people think they are smarter than others...

He wasn't arrested due to switching his phone on;He was arrested for not complying with instructions given by the air crew. It is an offense upheld in any international law room wherever you may be. Non compliance with air crew instructions results in a compromise of safety for other passengers so on this occasion, the involvement of the police and the passengers arrest is proportionate to the way he acted. Air crew always have the final say onboard an aircraft, they are responsible for the safety of all. I have no sympathy for this idiot passenger: all he had to do was wait a few more minutes. Now he has an arrest and a likely penalty going on his police record that will cling to him forever.

So let ME guess, you're probably the douche smoking (probably weed) in the bathroom during the flight causing a diversion.
Better yet, you're the a-hole who annoys the crap out of people talking loudly on your cell phone so people think (key word - THINK) you're important (news flash - you're not).
Point is, if rules are not enforced, why have them?
arrested for this?

Not to bash u Simon, keep up the great work
The airline said the passenger turned ..... ?? his cell phone as the aircraft landed in El Paso. When the man was asked to turn the phone off he did not.
