I went into Airplane Mode today using the widget. It turned off my Wifi (but not GPS?) and went into Airplane Mode just fine. Then when using the widget to turn Airplane Mode off I see my Wifi turn back on, but the Airplane Mode isn't removed. The only way I can find to actually take the phone out of Airplane mode is to hold the power button and toggle it from the silent/airplane/power popup.
I usually use my mobile as an alarm clock. All handsets I had until now where ringing even they where off. I can't the same with my new X10 mini. I don't want to have the handset on all night near my head. I'm using Android 2.1
Just updated two days ago and my Airplane Mode icon will take me to the settings screen where I have to tap on Airplane Mode again which turns it into a two step process and makes the icon pointless. The other thing is that the screen is not dimming like it did in Power Saver mode. I keep my screen about 1/3 because indoors it's all I need and it would drop it about 10% before I updated to 4.3. Now it keeps it at the 1/3 default no matter what. I can't really say whether it's having a dramatic effect on battery life, but it would be nice to get that extra 5% in times of need.
I am going on a cruise to Mexico Monday and I want to be able to leave my iPhone on to listen to my iTunes and use the Wi-Fi... If I put my phone on airplane mode will it run the bill up with roaming charges?? The only reason I'm worried is because its a company phone and my boss will freak out!! lol
I know this is probably a really stupid question but this is the last chance to try and locate my gf's iphone which she has just lost in a taxi somewhere in Hong Kong. As she does not have international roaming she had it set on airplane mode so it's not like she can just call it up and find out if it's been handed in Is there anyway to remotely turn off airplane mode?I realise the automatic response might be 'well if she doesn't have a cellular network, how do you think you could sent anything to the phone even if there was a way to do it" but I'm literally grasping at straws here
My iPhone 4 iOS 5.0.1, cannot grab a signal after I turned my iphone into airplane mode because my sim is not roaming sim to avoid battery drain due to searching of carrier, after going back to the country, i turned off airplane mode but No service is shown, I tried restoring it, turning it off and many things.
just got the new iphone 4s. I want to listen to audiobooks while on a long overseas flight, which won't have wifi. i downloaded an audiobook off itunes, but when i turn on airplane mode, i can't play the book. is there any way to listen to audiobooks in airplan mode?
I reset my iPhone to factory settings and all went well. However, before I did so, I forgot that I had put it in airplane mode and didn't switch it out. Airplane mode is still on and there's no way to get it out. What's the big deal? Well it's trying to reactivate my phone and it won't activate it without the antennas on...and I can't get to the Settings to disable Airplane mode because it's in that iOS 5 initial set up. I can't get past it at all to?How can I get this Airplane mode disabled so it can activate? I tried activating through iTunes and it didn't work. It is not jailbroken or anything.
I cannot send or receive texts at home because there is insufficient service at my house so I use iMessage over wifi. The issue is that when I am on wifi and out of service the phone will not send iMessages or texts over wifi unless the phone is in Airplane mode. Does anyone know how to make wifi the default iMessage so that I can send iMessages over wifi without going to Airplane mode? It tries to send them but it acts as if there is no service when I have full wifi and as soon as I switch to Airplane mode and keep wifi connected, all messages send fine.
I switch to airplane mode and hope to turn off all notifications because there is no connectivity to wi-fi or 3G. It turns out I was wrong, I woke up in the middle of the night to the vibration and beep of my iPhone telling my that all of my planes have landed! But do I really need to know this at 2:00 in the morning? I don't think so! I made sure airplane mode was still on and it was but I was still getting notifications just from that one app. I would like to know how to disable this without having to go into notifications settings, pocket planes, etc.
Lumia 900 failed to wake me up this morning. The alarm just did not sound at all.
- Alarm was set and was shown to be in use. Even the Icon in the start screen was shown - Tried multiple times afterwards setting the existing alarm a few minutes forward. None of the attempts alarmed.
How I set the alarm is that I always edit the existing alarm, edit the time and push the alarm on.When I tried creating a new alarm (a few minutes forward), that ringed ok. But the existing alarm failed to ring
I have had the hTC one for the past 5 days. This is my first android phone and so far liking it except for the bug that I encountered. The phone goes to airplane mode when it is sleeping. At work I try to connect to the wifi network to save on the MegaBytes in my T-mobile plan. When the phone goes into the airplane mode I can get it out of it only by pressing the power on button continuously and a menu shows up that allows me to disable the airplane mode.
it is frustrating that a great phone has a bug such as this that might prevent me from receving calls even when there is a signal present. I am hoping this can be resolved just by a software update.
Battery drain months ago prior to an OS update, but I only purchased my M9 two months ago, and the battery drain has been shocking.I haven't rooted the phone, or done anything to it. I turned off Google Now. I keep screen brightness on relatively low. I turned off notifications for all apps, including really active ones like Facebook and Instagram. I keep GPS off unless I need it. No Bluetooth, nothing. And yet my battery just drains and drains.
Last Sunday I kept my phone on airplane mode for most of the day (I did turn the mode off a few times to check texts but then turned back on again). My battery kept draining throughout the day, I started the day at 100%, and by 6pm it was at 20% battery. ON AIRPLANE MODE! I can't upload a screenshot right now but battery usage stats say Google Services used 38% of my battery during the day - what is this?! I turn off most things so that Google can't use my phone or notify me of anything, and yet it uses my battery so badly.
It's making me hate my phone - my old Nexus 5 and then OnePlus One was never this bad. I'm actually jealous of my iPhone friends who can use their phone for a day and a half before charge runs out!!
My Verz HTC One "stays awake" in airplane mode...I put my phone in airplane mode at work due to no signal but my battery will drain and my battery history shows the phone awake the whole time (no screen shot) Hard reset fixes problem only for a short period..there are no apps running...
I bought HTC one 3weeks ago..everything was going good initially but later got this issue. The airplane mode gets turned on automatically at 11pm every day.This could be an issue with the settings,but dint any option to set it correct.
