Why cant you turn cellphones on while on the airplane ?

Both good answers. Also, I believe it possibly disrupts or scrambles critical communication between the tower & plane- or from plane to plane. Something that could easily result in a disaster involving the loss of many lives. Why even take a chance, just in case?

I think it's because it messes with the technology on the plane while it takes off

As far as I know, cellphones can cause an interruption in the signals between an airplane pilot. Most planes allow them. I asked a similar question earlier, but did some more research.

Supposedly because it jams the GPS and you end up crashing but watch myth busters
