Where is the detail around the cell phones? Just because a phone rings doesn't mean it's online and in working order. Hasn't been that way since the late 90's.

If my cell phone is dead/off, it goes straight to voice mail. It doesn't ring.

You don't know the phones on the other end are ringing. And not all phones go straight to voicemail when they're unreachable. That's my point.

I get no service at work ... but when my wife calls it rings and rings and rings on her end then boots to voicemail . It doesn't even show I missed a call ... just that I have a voicemail ... I think it rings while trying to locate my phone ?? Not sure ... but they do ring on the callers end sometimes even if the receiver is not getting the call .. I agree

What about the chat app that showed some of the people were online? I haven't heard a lot of details about it, but that seemed to be a weird one that couldn't be explained the same way the ringing could.

Maybe they remained logged in on their computers at home or work or something, but that was odd.

Yeah, I'm not sure, I haven't read all the articles on this. I'll tell you that depending on the chat app there could be a bunch of different explanations.

The point I'm trying to make, if the person you're calling phone is dead, it goes straight to voicemail without you hearing any rings.. If the phone is turned on, it rings 3-4-5 times then goes to voicemail.


I don't recall ever calling someone with a dead/broken cell phone and it ringing and they don't answer, only to find out later that their phone was dead/broken.

I get the "point you're trying to make" and I'm telling you you're wrong. Jeez, I know you're from Michigan and all but I'm still surprised. Just because you don't ever remember it happening to you doesn't make it fact.

This is a per carrier setting and even then there are all types of scenarios where it happens. I'm not sure what you do for a living but technology and mobility is my area of expertise. Not to mention this is Malaysia and carriers over there are different than whoever you use.

smh

I need to put you on my block list.

"per carrier setting"

Your test means nothing.

Are you so xenophobic that you think whatever happens in your little world is what happens all over the rest of planet earth? Can you even fathom that perhaps things are different somewhere other than where you are?

I'm done with arguing this point to someone who clearly doesn't get it.

You're right. You got me. Verizon is only the 18th largest. I thought they were bigger. Didn't even know they're only US based until I looked it up.

I'll eat my crow now.

This is looking more like the pilots did something. The pilots last words were "All right, good night" and then they lost contact with the plane. That would be lucky timing for someone to hijack the plane right after they switch over to Vietnamese air traffic controllers. Plus, if the people on the plane saw someone hijacking the plane I would think at least 1 person would have made a call or texted somebody they knew. It seems like these passengers had no idea of this. Pilots know all the tricks when it comes to everything in the cockpit, especially when one of them has a aviation simulator in his house. Other than those 2 guys with stolen passports (who have pretty much been ruled out), not 1 other passenger has come up being suspicious on that plane.

Missing Malaysia jet pilots described as "humble" and "safety-conscious" - CBS News

Quote:
CBS News' Bob Orr reported Thursday that two communication systems on Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 were shut down separately in the moments before the flight disappeared from radar on Saturday; a data system and two transponders which relayed information about the jet's speed, altitude and location.
Quote:
Sources told the Reuters news agency on Friday, meanwhile, that the path Flight 370 appears to have taken after diverting from its intended route strongly suggests that a trained pilot was still in control of the aircraft.
About the 27 year old pilot...
Quote:
Fariq is a "good boy, a good Muslim, humble and quiet," said Ahmad Sarafi Ali Asrah, the head of a community mosque about 100 meters from Fariq's two-story home in a middle class neighborhood on the outskirts of Kuala Lumpur.
About the 53 year old pilot...
Quote:
Grabbing attention were pictures Zaharie posted online of a flight simulator he had built for his home using three large computer monitors and other accessories.

Why don't you just join a forum for "intellectuals",as you obviously think you are,instead of insulting anyone who doesn't share your viewpoint? You have a habit of thinking you're always right,which you are NOT. You think you're so smart,then tell us where the plane is???
