Sprint HTC Hero :: Turn On Wifi - Without Phone Service On - Ie Airplane Mode

Feb 5, 2010

I am leaving the country and would like to be able to check my email using wifi, but want to prevent getting roaming charges incase the data/phone connection kicks on. I know that if you turn on airplane mode, it will not allow you to turn on wifi. Is there a way, or an app that will allow you to do this.

Sprint HTC Hero :: Specifics On Airplane Mode & Mobile Toggle?

Jan 25, 2010

In a recent thread, someone suggested to me that using Airplane Mode can chew up battery. Initially, I thought this seemed pretty silly, cause all it's really doing it turning off the wireless connections (how could that use more power?), but I had no reason to doubt this person.

I figured this evening, I would simply turn off my WiFi and Mobile Radio using the toggles. I noticed that your signal bars do not disappear when you turn off the mobile radio via the toggle. In fact, I can even place a phone call!! Not a very effective toggle in my mind.

Can anyone drop a little science on what's going on here? Is the Mobile radio ONLY for data? If so, is there a missing toggle widget in HTC's collection on this device? And ultimately, what is the airplane mode doing (and how could it not conserve battery over a fully "on" state)?

HTC Hero :: Large Battery Consumption In Airplane Mode

Dec 3, 2009

My non-branded GSM hero eats battery. So I decided to check some things out. These numbers are starting from 100% battery, and after a reboot - the only thing I open is settings to check the battery level, and then I lock it and leave it for 6 hours. In all cases the final awake time is low, less than 15% (because I'm doing nothing with it). Full data-sync mode - gmail sync, twitter, etc - about 10% battery use per hour. Retro mode - GSM only, data switched off - 6 % per hour. Airplane mode - 3.5% per hour - WTF?? (Awake time ~1%) Why is battery consumed when it's doing sod all?

HTC Desire :: Phone Itself Goes To Airplane Mode

May 7, 2010

I've just got my HTC Desire and love it, but I've encountered a small problem - I can't seem to get my phone out of Airplane Mode. I did install Locale, I then noticed that the phone always goes into Airplane Mode, so I uninstalled locale but the problem persists - I've seen loads of other threads about this with other handsets, but got no real ideas of how to solve it?

Samsung Moment :: Phone Still Has Airplane Mode

Nov 9, 2009

(Thread reboot due to 2.1 update)Mods, please delete any comments in this thread up to 5/14 if possible. Any old issues from 1.5 no longer seem applicable to the phone now that 2.1 is official...

- Camera preview does not display full scene that is captured in the image, especially noticeable in Google Goggles

- Phone will sometimes dial random contacts instead of the desired one when making a call to a contact with multiple stored numbers

- Pandora freezes phone (requiring battery pull) if headphones or power plug pulled out during playback

- Screen sometimes comes on with no input from user, draining battery

- Phone still has Airplane mode issue (may be hardware?)

- Proximity sensor is either broken by 2.1 or has a bug: screen stays on during calls and will sometimes turn off during use, requiring a finger over sensor to see screen.

Samsung Moment :: Phone Enters Airplane Mode At Random

Nov 5, 2009

I purchased this phone 2 days ago and since returned it for full refund. It would enter airplane mode and the only way to get out of the mode was to remove battery and then restart. That always didn't work either. This was unacceptable for 200 dollars. The battery was also a big ? It seemed that the battery life was non-existant. I give this phone an E on a grading scale. "E" for effort. Will wait for next Sprint Android phone. That might be a while.

Motorola Droid :: Wavesecure In Airplane Mode Locking Phone

Feb 18, 2010

My son was playing with my phone a few days ago. When I got it back, and turned the screen back on, wavesecure had locked the phone. I asked my son how he turned it on, he said all he did was put the phone into airplane mode. Wierd I thought.

Was flying yesterday. Purposely put the phone in airplane mode. Turned phone back on, and wow, wavesecure had locked it again.

I know this isn't a feature! Has this happened to anyone else. I have uninstalled Wavescure. BTW, this issue of airplane mode and wavesecure has not happened to me until this week. I have had wavesecure on my phone since nov, and have used airplane mode without these issues.

Sprint HTC Hero :: Rebooting Phone In Silent Mode

Nov 3, 2009

Sometimes when my phone is on silent and I turn it off and reboot it, it plays all the start up sounds as its loading. Sometimes, it does not. I hate this, because at work (in a spa) I keep my purse in my cabinet, and I don't love for it to play a bunch of sounds when it is supposed to be on silent. This is the only thing that makes any noise when the phone is on silent, and its only sometimes.

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?

Aug 16, 2010

I know I shouldn't complain about receiving a 4g signal. But even when I am in airplane mode I can receive a signal in 4g. I can't make phone calls but I can use the internet. The part I don't like it that it beeps when it gets the 4g signal with notifications about emails and stuff. Anyone know how to fix it.

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?

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 problems..ie 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.

HTC Desire :: Spotify In Airplane Mode

Jun 21, 2010

Just switched from iPhone to new HTC Desire, which I love! Only one problem though! When I put my phone into airplane mode, but with wifi on, Spotify goes offline. When I take phone out of airplane mode Spotify still doesn't come back on. I want to be able to use Spotify at night, but with phone in this mode. I used to be able to do this in iPhone, am I doing something wrong? Would it have something to do with SD card?

i understand this might be a known issue (radio crash after froyo update). anybody know what to do?rooted my phone awhile ago... upgraded to Froyo a couple days ago (leaked FROYO.DJ29) and things were moving along pretty well. today while the phone was sitting inactive, it decided to go into airplane mode.the last thing it did was try to download a google maps update.i'm completely unable to get out of airplane mode. if i unselect it, it says "turning on wireless connections." but never finishes that. resetting doesn't help. taking the battery out doesn't help.in fact, the date on the phone reset to December 31, 2004.

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
