Question about Apple iPhone Smartphone

1 Answer

Airplane Mode Hi there. Thanks in advance for reading... So somehow my airplane mode feature was turned on after I was in a loud nightclub in Brazil. Don´t know how or why but now this mode will not even permit me to go into the settings to turn it off so I cant access anything. I have reset the phone by pressing the sleep/wake etc and tried to charge it, etc. , all to no avail. It seems the top slider (prior to shutting off) works but the bottom slider (once back on) does not. My alarm works so the sound is not affected, but I can´t turn it off using the middle prompt to ``snooze/wake`. If anyone can give me another tip as to how to shut off airplane mode w/o going into the settings that would be very helpful... I have a bad feeling it may not be that easy. Anyway, thanks. ML

Re: Airplane Mode

My phone once resisted the bottom "unlock" slider for about 10 seconds. I think I just waited and tried again and it worked. If that doesn't work for you, run the battery down all the way.

Besides, once the iPhone boots up, it should go straight to the home screen, right? Not to the "locked" screen with the slider and wallpaper.

Perform a hard reset on your device by pressing and holding your lock screen/power button until your device powers off. If this doesn't solve your problem please set your phone to airplane mode for ten seconds, and then turn it he airplane mode back off. Airplane mode can be accessed through your cell phones settings.

How do you turn of phone - no calls and turn off just roaming?

Enable Airplane Mode on your iPhone by choosing Settings, then turn airplane mode off.
This will disable the ability to:
Make phone calls
Send or receive email
Browse the Internet
Send or receive text messages
Stream YouTube videos
Get stock quotes
Get maps locations
Get weather reports

When in airplane mode you can still:
Listen to music and watch video
Listen to visual voicemail
Check your calendar
Take or view pictures
Hear alarms
Use the stopwatch or timer
Use the calculator
Take notes
Read text messages and email messages already stored

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Airplane mode

The airplane mode can be turned off by switching off the mobile and switching it on again. Ask *********** to switch off her mobile as she would do it normally ( if she does not know how to do that, there should be a power button for every mobile, so holding it pressed will switch it off) and then she can switch it on again. So when the mobile gets switched on, it will ask for options for flight mode or normal mode. The normal mode can be selected now. This is how it happens in my sony ericson mobile. If this does not help, let me know your mobile model number.
