All cell phones in the US are required to have some sort of tracking device now... a few use GPS but most use a cell tower based sytem. I don't know how that would work in the air, but unless you have a PCS phone, it's illegal to use it while airborne (not that I've ever heard of anybody being charged).

I have a Pharos 600 GPS/phone. The screen is barely big enough to use in the car, let alone while flying. And the interface is pretty cumbersome and would be very distracting while flying.
