Ever wondered what will happen if you don't put your phone on airplane mode when on a flight?

The airplane mode function on our smartphones is a feature that is not utilised very often.

As the name suggests, people are only asked to set their phones on airplane mode when they are flying.

Like many, you've probably just followed instructions given by the aircrew without knowing why.

Wittyfeed has compiled a series of photos showing what may happen if you do not set your phone to airplane mode during flights.
