You can still board commercial aircraft with your recalled Galaxy Note 7 turned on and even use it in the air, but you’ll probably be worrying your neighbors, flight crew and regulators all the way up to 30,000 feet and then back down again.

After recent consideration, the Federal Aviation Administration has issued a statement advising passengers “not to turn on or charge these devices on board aircraft and not to stow them in any checked baggage” in the wake of recent Note 7 explosions that Samsung has traced to defective batteries. The company recalled all sold units and will be exchanging them with new units when they are ready.

Unlike major Australian carriers, neither the FAA nor any US-based airline has explicitly banned customers from using or charging their Galaxy Note 7 on flights.
