    Air France sent a Paris-bound plane back to the US city of Houston on Tuesday after the discovery of a mobile phone that was seemingly mislaid by someone who had taken an earlier flight on the same aircraft.

    Can't criticize AF toooo much on this. You never know what a phone can be set up to do.

    In AT&T's case, actually complete a call would be surprising.

    So? It got past security and onto the plane, so it's gotta be harmless.

    Change to "how honest"; usually you'll never find a phone left on the plane.
