    Interested in this, too. I use my phone for photos in airplane mode when I tour. Rarely have cell coverage where I tour.

    Any source of transient frequency is a source of potential interference:

    "Your cell, particularly if it’s a smartphone, gives off a significant amount of competing noise when it’s on and the screen is illuminated. If you think that setting your phone to airplane mode is enough to cut noise, think again. Airplane mode does not significantly alter the amount of electronic noise the phone gives off. Hold a phone set to airplane mode too close to a searching beacon, and your numbers will be affected as much as if the phone were fully “on.”

    So, phone in airplane mode is still a potential source of interference and not a good idea.

    Thanks. So I shouldn’t keep the phone near Prince Albert!
