I haven't been on an airplane in 5 years and with all of the restrictions on things anymore, I was wondering if you are allowed to bring a DS on an airplane? My wife said she wasn't sure if you could or not.

[QUOTE="rpggamer92"]my friend did but he said when your taking off and when your landing you have to turn it off. rpgfayth
You can use your DS on airplanes. Follow all in-flight instructions regarding when electronic devices can be turned on and must be turned off. And, make sure to disable (and, thus, not enable) any WiFi or wireless communication on the DS during the flight (it can potentially interfere with the flight crew's communications system). I just flew a month ago and everything was fine, including going through security. TwoStirsPacoWe didn't have any problems with using the wi-fi mode on my trip to Vegas last April. .
You can't use the download play function, it collides with the airplanes mechs. you can just use it though. =)XyrieSure you can. ;)

Not too sure, but depends on the plane's technology or some garbage like that maybe. I do several times a year, this year though I've gotta finally finish FFV so i can move on up :D
[QUOTE="PostHaren"]Is there any risk that the x-ray will injure the DS in any way?The X-Ray will be fine. It's the magnets in the walk-through scanner that would do electronics harm- it's feasible that the memory on the DS could be rendered non-functional.When i was just in Orlando in November, my DS went through the scanner with Madden 06 inside. After that, the game wouldn't save anything i did. For your sake, make sure you have no games in the slot when you put it through.

I leave for Hawaii in 14 days and im taking my PSP, Ipod video, DS Lite, and GBA Micro.... I have a 12 hour flight. One of the guys I work with also works at TSA and he said yeah its fine if you bring all of those they just might have you turn them all on just to make sure theres nothing fishy.wiccanhenchmanDamn man... isn't that a bit xcessive?
It really isnt that importent to have your DS turn´d of during take off and landing. I´ve talked to a pilot about it and he says that in every flight about 15-20 people forget to turn of there mobile phones and no harm done (thought its better to have them turnd if, say if everyone had there phone on THEN it would f*** up the signal system in airplane to landing place).
I dont turn of my Ipod then takeing of and landing...
Last September I had my DS, my brother was watching a movie on his portable DVD player and the lady next to us was watching a movie on her computer.
(The kid behind me had some stupid game which kept playing "who let the dogs out woof woof!" over and over and over and over.................)
So yes. You can take your DS with you on the plane.
They might ask you to turn it on at the security check, but they've only asked me to turn on my laptop before and even that is fairly rare.
For the most part the thing about not using electrical devices before take off and landing is so the crew has control of all the information the passengers receive. If somebody receives a radio/cell phone message the weathers bad a passenger can panic and delay the flight, and put more things at risk.
As far as cell phone goes I highly doubt they'll be fully allowed anytime soon since you get a plane of 20+ people talking on their cell-phones in a plane that's already a little noisey, and the flight is unbearible.
He he, thanks _em. When I checked my forum post log I noticed that this thread died like 14 months ago. That's why my bump was super. :D But yea, the last time I flew on an airplane they make sure you turn off your electronic device. Another thing is make sure you don't have earphones during take off and landing or even around your neck because the flight attendents will think that you're listening to music or something :P.
As for being unable to save after going through the magnetic door alarm thing, I never knew that but thankfully I always empty most of my pockets (if it's a pencil why would they need to check that) so my DS lite thankfully wasn't damaged during my trip to college here in the US from Thailand. Seriously, it's like a 22 hour flight and that's including the possible layovers as you wait for your next flight to the next city. There's 4 planes that I needed to ride in this order: Chiangmai, Thailand to Taipei, China to San Francisco, CA to Dalas, TX and finally to Fort Smith. It was a looooong journey for me, but I made it safe and sound. :)
