Errr, I think you may be able to use mobiles at altitude these days.
When I arrived in CPT a few days ago I realised that I had mistakenly forgotten to switch my mobile off. It was deep in my hand baggage in the overhead locker.

When I looked at my messages, there were 12…..”Welcome to SFR France, Welcome to Vodafone Spain, Algeria, Chad,…..all countries to Angola, Namibia and finally South Africa”. On that basis, I could have made a mobile phone call at any stage of the flight. Oooops!
