try pressing the power button once and see if it displays a list of power down options, if it does look for something relating to "normal" mode. holding down the power button for about 2-3 seconds should also bring up such options. you may also go to profiles on the phone and choose the normal mode or choose the offline mode again.....this option depends on the type of phone os. let me know how it goes
Offline mode only appears if the mobile phone is not getting the signal from its service provider. *make sure that the sim is properly connected*reseat the sim card from the mobile phone*check account status for signal and connection availability*power cycle mobile phone 1. turn off mobile phone2. remove phone battery3. remove memory card4. remove sim card5. wait for 2 minutes before plugging back anything6. after 2 minutes, plug back battery7. insert memory card properly8. insert sim card properly s well, make sure that the sim is not dirty as well9. turn on mobile phone10. check the signal bar, it should be with signal this time and not offline *after power cycling, phone should be working properly now unless the sim card is really faulty. you check if its faulty by calling your mobile service provider*
Your phone might have switched to offline mode accidentally if your keypad is not locked and you have the phone in your pocket/bag.
Press the power button momentarily to bring out a list of profile options, and select "General";
or you can go to Menu -> Settings -> Profiles and choose Normal Mode;
or you can turn the phone completely off and then turn it back on; while the phone boots up you will be asked if you want to exit offline mode -> answer yes
In order to prevent the phone from switching modes, or making inadvertent calls, remember to lock the keypad when the phone is not in use:
Left selection key + functions key http://europe.nokia.com/support/product-support/e63/nokia-e63-how-to/get-started/get-started-shortcuts
Tap the power button once (do not hold it too long, because it will turn your phone off). Just choose any profile, and your phone will go to online mode.
You can switch it anytime to offline mode, in case you want to use your phone and be unavailable at the same time, by doing the same thing - tapping the power button, and selecting offline mode/profile.
