If that becomes a serious issue then it's the airlines job to decide whether to ban it or not. I'm glad they have finally scrapped the bullshit safety regulations so that we can at least have the discussion as to whether making phone calls on flights is ok. I suspect it wont be a problem for most of the time. I rarely have similar issues with trains, which people are perfectly free to use a mobile phone on.

"Apple can patch iMessage to handle this and then there's little work involved for the customers at all." Please, go ahead and explain what the fix for this is because apparently the engineers at Apple with all their fancy computer science degrees are unable to figure it out. Aside from the 45 day phone number deletion time that is already in place, what would you change?

It's never labelled as SMS, it's labelled as Messages. Apple simply chooses to deliver these messages over the best medium possible for the highest number of people. This is entirely the fault of users. There is no technical fix for this, the only mitigation would be to make the automatic deregistration time shorter which has its own problems.

Excessive login or logout messages are a sure sign of senility.
