Mobiles, Aeroplanes and Interference

As many of you (all 2 or so out of the 600-million online people) have noticed, I have become a bit irregular. I am travelling and because I tend to be under the illusion that I have a thing called privacy, that is all I am revealing for now.
During the trotting, I was amused by the pilot/hostess persuading people to switch off the mobile phones on the flight. I understand basic electronics but just cannot help wonder as to what damage and to what extent of bad can cell phones do to the aircraft controls. Will terrorists some day use this to advantage to hijack an aeroplane? Is the following situation possible?
