How do I connect to Wi-Fi during a flight when the phone is in airplane mode?
SandraW

I'm new to this phone and just flew with it for the first time.   I had a free coupon code for onboard Wi-Fi, but couldn't figure

out how to connect to the Wi-Fi when the phone is in airplane mode.  I ended up just leaving the phone off during the flight.

 

Thanks in advance for your help! :smileyhappy:

Put the phone in airplane mode. Then go in the settings and turn the wifi back on. There are shortcuts to get to these settings, but I will post the long way for the learning experience.

Airplane mode:
From the Homescreen > menu > settings > wireless & networks > airplane mode > check on

Turn on wifi:
From the Homescreen > menu > settings > wireless & networks > wifi settings > turn on wifi > menu > scan > select an available network > enter the password as required > touch the connect button
