If you've been on a commercial flight you've heard the speech..."turn off all electronic devices..." it's a standard before take offs and landings. Seems like on some flights just as you get things powered back up you have to turn them off again. WELL, guess what regulation is being 86'ed. While it's not official YET, it's been strongly rumored that the ban may be lifted as early as next year. You won't be able to make calls from the air, but you can do things as long as your device is on airplane mode. See what's shakin here.
