Someone on the internet is *wrong*
These idiots (in the comments) who say things like "I left my phone on the whole plane ride and it didn't crash the plane, ha ha!" don't seem to understand that the potential problem is that a mass of electronic devices will interfere with the plane's radar and other communications, especially critical during take-off and landing. A few devices (the pilots', or a few stubborn jerks on the plane) probably won't affect things, but a whole plane full of people might. Will it definitely? I don't know and neither do you. That's why they're studying it.
I need to stop reading comments.

what they don't seem to be considering, cause they're idiots and jerks, is the consequence of being wrong if, in fact, a single phone being on would cause the plane to crash. can I beat them with my shoe?
I hear that argument all the time...why would you want to test that theory????????
