    I was looking at the phone info, found by dialing *#*#4636#*#*
    One button in this is "Turn off radio".

    I'm interested to know if this could be used to work around the current inability to do airplane mode and enable wifi at the same time on the Eris. Could you use this option to turn off the radio, disable mobile network, and then enable wifi?

    Has anyone seen if this works, and if turning the radio on and off is as easy as finding this button? I'm a bit afraid to try it myself right now.

    Thanks for confirming. I just tried it too, works great. Someone should make a simple widget to toggle this wifi-airplane mode until we get the 2.x upgrade.
