General :: PIN Number Changing And Stuck In Airplane Mode

Jan 26, 2012

I've got a Samsung Droid Charge, which I've rooted. I had used it for about 3 months with minimal issues. Yesterday I noticed my phone was stuck in airplane mode, and no amount of phone codes, setting tweaks, and soft resets would get it out. I backed up everything with Titanium and did a factory reset. This gave me my signal back, and I started the process of restoring everything via Titanium. After the restore completed, I was prompted to add my PIN for my Exchange account, which I did. I then soft reset my phone...

When the phone rebooted, I was in airplane mode again, and the PIN unlock screen was blocking entry to my phone. I enter in the PIN I had set a few minutes previously...and the phone rejects it. I try it a couple of times just to be sure, and no dice. I tried what I thought were defaults, like 1111 or 0000 or 1234...nothing. After my attempts ran out, the phone hard reset itself again.

Just to see if I wasn't crazy, I tried the whole process again and got the exact same result.

Why is my PIN being modified without my knowing, and what is it being modified to? Additionally, why do I get stuck in airplane mode after restoring my Titanium backup? I'd like to be able to use my phone without worrying about the need to wipe it after a soft reset...

HTC Desire :: 2.2 Stuck In Airplane Mode

Oct 25, 2010

After updating to 2.2 on tmobile when it eventually came to us how ever many weeks ago, all seemed fine untill the phone rebooted and turned back on in airplane mode - try as I did, I couldnt turn it off, none off the different ways to do it seemed to work (home screen widget, long hold on on/off button, settings-wireless and networks-airplane mode off)- I eventually, having called t-mobile who where almost as helpfull as a bag of jelly had to factory reset which did seem to sort it out.The reason I am writting now is because after reading the threads about how often people turn their phones off, I did just this. Low and behold the ruddy airplance mode was on when phone turned back on and same again, couldnt turn it off. I turned the phone on and off for about 10 times and eventually it seemed to work although I couldnt tell you why in that particular instance. Now this isnt a major issue as I do actually keep the phone turned on for the most, but I am obviously tyring to foresee possible future battery running out, having to reboot because or a dodgy app etc Id like to know if anyone has any ideas of why this happens and anything I can do to avoid this in future. I did read an old thread on here about airplane mode sticking because of sim card age but not sure why this would make a difference, it was fine with 2.1 and only started happening after the froyo update.

Samsung Moment :: Stuck In Airplane Mode

Nov 12, 2010

For those of you familiar with this problem, it's when your Moment's signal bars displays an "x" but is stuck in AIRPLANE MODE. When you hold down the END button to pull up the 3 item menu you see this (note that it says AIRPLANE MODE IS ON):

Silent Mode
(Sound is ON)

Airplane Mode
(Airplane Mode is ON)

Power Off

So I battery pulled the phone...didn't work. I then did the VOLUME UP/CALL/END button hold down trick to bring up the root menu and did the Master Reset (which took my phone back to stock + wiped out all of my apps and data so BACKUP YOUR PHONE FIRST):

Firmware: 2.1-update1
Baseband Version: S:M900.8.OS.DI06
Kernel Version: 2.6.29
Build Number: ECLAIR.DJ07

...didn't work

I then went into the root menu again and did the REBOOT, still nothing

I then proceeded to get mad and hit the phone a few times and BANG, the signal came back and has been back since (2 days running).

Is there something in the hardware configuration I can change to fix this lock-up issue? If I open up the phone, is there something I can do to fix this? Please someone help...obviously my solution won't last as a fix

HTC Droid Eris :: Chronic Force Closing And Stuck Airplane Mode - WTF?

Jan 16, 2010

my Eris this morning and was greeted by 5-8 force close notifications for what seems like all of my critical processes. My status bar shows that I have no reception, and my lock screen says I'm in Airplane mode, but if I hold the End button down, it says AP mode is off. If I try to go into my wireless settings, Settings will FC. If I bring up the dialer, that will FC. If I click my Wireless Network toggle widget, then Sense will FC. Everything is FUBAR. I can't think of any recently installed applications that might have caused the problem... aside from the latest OTA patch. This was the first time my phone has been powered off since installing the latest OTA.

General :: Enable Airplane Mode Permanently

Dec 12, 2011

1. I just got done perusing 10 pages of hits for "airplane mode" and everyone is trying to do something opposite of what I'm doing.

2. I'm not really that android-savvy. Just good at following instructions.

QUESTION: How do I enable Airplane Mode "permanently" so that a child cannot disable this mode?

EXPLANATION: I have several android devices (Droid Xs, specifically) that have clean ESNs and are not currently being used on any carrier. I also have children (5,3,1).

I've SBF'd, rooted, and removed all unnecessary APKs, leaving only a few educational apps and games for the children to use. And, yes, I enable Airplane Mode. They love having their own little "mini" tablets and being able to be like the grown-ups.

Unfortunately, the oldest has a knack for pushing all sorts of buttons and inadvertently turning the phone's radio back on. I know that I have not associated the ESN with any carrier; however, as I'm sure most of you know, when you dial a number with a non-subscribed number, it still asks you if you want to make the call and charge it to a credit card - at least, this is what the phone did the last time this happened.

So, bottom line, I want to disable my child's access to any carrier's cellular and data networks. And I want to be the only one that could possible re-enable that access.

If there was some way to enable Airplane Mode "permanently" and remove access to all toggles, settings that could disable Airplane Mode, then this would ease my mind. Obviously, I would want this condition to exist only until I either reflashed the phone or had to do something very convoluted (perhaps editing some setting manually via command line or ADB?).

HTC EVO 4G :: GPS In Airplane Mode?

Aug 17, 2010

I was just wondering if there are any apps that take advantage of GPS while in airplane mode? I was really hoping the reason why apps like Maps or Google Sky didn't work without a network connection because all that data could not be stored on the phone's internal memory. Now that we can move apps to the SD card, are there any apps out there that work with the cell radio off? Or do you think we will see more of this? The only reason I ask is because I travel out of the country alot and it sure would be nice to be able to use an app like Google Maps when it would be most useful.PS.when I use the "GPS Test" app in airplane mode, the phone is seeing plenty of satellites at least 10.Also it would be nice to be able to use Google Translate when it would be most useful trying to speak the language in another country although I realize that is totally unrelated to GPS but it is related to apps2sd just irritating that it doesn't work without a network connection again, I would assume that the network connection is needed for data storage purposes? why not store it on the SD card it is only text in this case.

Android :: Airplane Mode On

Aug 23, 2010

Sorry for my English, I use the Google translator. I ask about a small application that I'm doing. This is a custom control panel with the things I most use my own phone, you know, something to personalize it a bit I put a direct button to call my home, a shortcut to the music player, another for a given e-mail address, etc.Now I want to put a button to turn on airplane mode to at night, but this is where I'm confused. I found a lot about AIRPLANE_ MODE_CHANGED, which I understand is used to detect changes in airplane mode, but can not get anything to work, or what I find or what I do or do nothing or give forced closure. At this point I should clarify that I'm using the permissions of the manifest (android.permission. WRITE_SETTINGS, android. permission.WRITE_SECURE_SETTINGS) I really do not want a button that I change the status, what I want is a button that simply activate an airplane mode. Someone would have an explanation or example of how I can do this?

HTC EVO 4G :: Bluetooth In Airplane Mode

Jun 19, 2010

Airplane mode disables bluetooth and I can't use my bluetooth stereo headphones on the plane. I have looked and I can't find a widget that will disable the cellular radio without disabling the Bluetooth. Since many planes have WiFi Internet now, it should be okay to use bluetooth which uses the same 2.4GHz frequency. Does anyone know of a widget that will disable the cellular service without disabling the bluetooth radio?

HTC EVO 4G :: Can't Turn On Airplane Mode

Jul 28, 2010

I have done lots of research on this, and Im confused at what to do.This is my first android phone, im trying to figure it out.I have had sprint for a few months, and coverage inside my house is terrible. Dropped calls, late texts, slow internet on my Blackberry Tour.I got the Evo, so that i could use WiFi. But, im concerned that the low signal is killing my battery. Its been a lot worse, but at the moment im at 37% Time without signal.Ive researched and found a few things:

1- I dialed *#*#4636#*#* and switched to CDMA Auto Prl

2- Also, I use WiFi while at home, but i cant turn on airplane mode, because i need to answer some calls and some texts. However, leaving airplane mode off, im concerned it will kill the battery faster while its searching for signal.

Im thinking of calling sprint and asking for the 'Airrave'.Would that fix the time with out signal, give me better reception, and save the battery?
