Ok guys, got myself a Nintendo DS along with Super Mario DS for my holiday (well, plane journey) but anyway, playing it on a plane won't cause the plane to go into freefall, will it?

Well, I just discovered with a reliable source that it is possible to play a Nintendo DS on a plane. However, using WI-FI is still a big unknown. If the technology is the same as the GBA wireless multilink, then yes (confirmed by NOM....yes NOM), if there are any differences, then hell no.

So, if any planes do some wacky stunts between Gatwick and Portugal, you heard nothing!

A lot of these warning about phones, CD players etc affecting navigation equipment, hospital equipment, cinema projection etc is all bull because they want you to turn your phone/player off so it doesn't annoy other people.

Keep the sound off/have headphones and turn it off during takeoff and landing and you'll be fine.

Ask the staff on the plane.

GBAs were fine, but I'm not sure if DS's will be, due to the wireless features.
