Re: airplane mode

I have found that if you press and hold the power key when turning on the phone, it can activate the airplane mode. Try to press and release it when turning it on to stop this problem.

Re: airplane mode

It usually means the phone has incurred liquid damage have the phone check at a service center. There is no real long lasting fix for a liquid damaged phone

My galaxy S3 powers off when it like on 3% but the charger device is still connected and charging the phone

Output on charger is not high enough. if it is a car charger and the output is only 1amp it is to low. Some home wall chargers are the same.

Also, if you put your phone into Airplane mode it uses far less power and should charge (though not as fast) with that charger.

When i am talking on the phone, it goes to airplane mode and i cannot use the do i fix or lock the screen or get the airplane mode off of the quick touches

This will help to reduce the frequency of this issue occurring. I have the same problem and have not yet found a way to remove the Airplane Mode option form the action bar pull-down for the Z998 phone. It is a ZTE firmware issue, not Android.

UNDERSTAND WHAT HAPPENS: when the phone moves slightly away from your ear while talking, the proximity sensor detects that it is not close to your face and it turns the display back on as it should. The screen often comes on with the action bar pulled down and thus all the controls exposed. A moment later your phone touches your ear before the proximity sensor had caused the screen to go blank again, so whatever your ear touches, can become an actual user command, even though unintentional. Unfortunately the Airplane Mode is one of the first selectable options on the Action Bar. You might sometimes notice that Bluetooth, Sound or Mobile Data gets toggle also; at least that does not cause you the dropped call. The problem gets worse when you walk or move around or fidget a lot while talking.

THIS HELPS: manually turn the screen off (press the power button) after you answer the call. Because you deliberately power off the screen, the proximity sensor is bypassed. The job of the proximity sensor is to turn on/off the screen to save battery (the reason of course that when the phone is against your ear, you cannot possibly also look at the screen, hence the proximity sensor turns it off for you). You will soon get in the habit.

Service disable

Sometimes cell phones have a short cut button for airlplane mode and it will get pushed, which shuts off all functions of the phone but the power stays on. Try going into the menu and setting airplane mode.

Here is the link to the user manual; Check page 119 of the manual (129 of the pdf)says: "Sometimes you may want to have your phone on,but turn off its ability to make and receive calls, such as when you are on an airplane. To set your phone so that it cannot make or receive phone calls, Direct Connect calls, Group Connect calls, Talkgroup Calls; or transfer data: 1 From the main menu, select Settings > Advanced > Airplane Mode. 2 Set this option to On. This icon U appears. Note: Pressing p for more than 5 seconds also turns on Airplane mode. To restore your phone?s ability to do all these things: Set this option to Off." Hope this helps :)
