Wonder if any of the passengers took a video on their smart phone while all this was happening and they find the smart phone in the wreckage? I hope the recovery teams are checking smart phones and cameras.

They're probably checking everyone's social media accounts. Maybe someone posted while it was happening.

Highly doubt there's WiFi or any other connectivity on such a flight...
And if yes it would have long been viral, through friends etc.

How is it that my cell phone cracks when I drop it, but a cell phone survived a 500mph crash?
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Most have been a Nokia :))

But seriously, who said the phone survived? Maybe the video had to be recovered from a smashed SD card?

You'd be surprised how resilient some memory cards are. I've put some through the wash and they're working fine to this day.
