Why do you have to switch your phone off for take-off even in flight mode?

Are airlines just paranoid for making you turn off your phone at take-off, even when it's in flight mode? Ditto an iPod or Kindle... do they really make any difference??

I always leave mine on, it's a load of boll*cks that it does anything to a modern day plane, the plane's radios and navigation equipment run on a totally different frequency to a mobile phone.

Of all the many planes I've ever been on, not one has ever crashed/got lost/been eaten by the Bermuda triangle due to me not switching my phone off, or due to any other reason for that matter.
