Default Phones

Now we seem to know what many of us already thought, maybe the
relatives' comments about phones ringing is not so far fetched i.e.
passengers disabled by lack of oxygen but phones still going.

Many times when I have flown to/from Europe to the Far East I have
forgotten to put my phone into flight mode. When I arrive and look at
my phone I see messages like - welcome to Poland, welcome to
Turkmenistan etc even though all I have ever done is fly across them
at 30 odd thousand feet.

On the assumption that I am not the only person in the world who
forgets to put their phone into flight mode surely the relevant
authorities could get the mobile phone records of the passengers and
see where they have been.

It might not do much good over the Andaman but at least it would
support the plane's track over Peninsular Malaysia and possibly
southern Thailand or elsewhere.

I would like to think they have already done it and are simply keeping
quiet but the way this whole thing has been handled leads me to
