Therefore, is the TSA going to ban all phones and laptops, IPAD, etc..........

Probably not.
There you go again, using those pesky facts and logic. Don't you understand that those are forbidden when dealing with what passes for a thought process at TSA?

Won't happen. Airlines have invested too much money/PR into it.

Red herring, perhaps?

Might as well ban one-way pagers, or communication devices with guaranteed message delivery. Or anything with an antenna with the capability to receive. Wait... don't say that out loud...
