Just a little annoying

So while traveling on the plane both to and from Dubai, the typical pre-flight mumbo jumbo is announced.  One of the instructions if to turn off your cell phones and do not use then during the flight.  Anyone ever here that?

It seems it only applies to some, because as soon as we get in range, I must hear 50 or so phones, ‘bing, bing’ ing, announcing a new text message has been received. 

Do people really not understand the verbage, ‘Turn off your cell phone’ spoken it at least two different languages?

I guess that isn’t as bad as the chap in front of me today that actually got a call, and answered it as we were coming in for a landing.

Was it that important?
