with Travel Pass, can I use Wi-Fi while still in Airplane Mode?

Using Travel Pass in Europe, I want to stay in Airplane Mode to avoid charges unless I need to call.  But is there any way I can access Wi-Fi while still in Airplane Mode?

What make/model phone/device do you have?  On my Droid Turbo 2, setting Airplane Mode ON disables Wi-Fi.

Update: it DOES allow me to turn Wi-Fi ON after Airplane Mode ENABLED.

Yes, you can easily turn on Wi-Fi while in Airplane mode.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

I'm fairly certain my Droid Eris circa 2009 could use Wi-Fi while in Airplane mode. In fact, you can also turn on the Bluetooth while in Airplane mode.

I appreciate you taking the time to help out our fellow community members, Ann154. 

 

@ROBSPI99,

 

I understand how important it is to be able to use your phone while traveling in Europe, and not have to worry about incurring any extra charges. As Ann154 mentioned, you can use WiFi while you have the phone on Air Plane mode.

 

What phone do you have? Where you able to enable WiFi on your phone while on Airplane mode?
