"If you leave you phone in online mode you will effect the electronics on the plane."
If that was true, and if there was ANY risk at all, you wouldn't be allowed to take them on board.
After all they ban nail-clippers, so why allow something that supposedly could crash the plane...?

Yes me too. If there was even the remotest risk that mobiles could interfere with anything important (as opposed to maybe the inflight entertainment channel?) they would be classed in the same league as other dangerous items, like mineral water and nail-clippers.
