    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.

    If you have the 4G widget on one of your screens make sure you didn't turn it back on after putting on airplane mode.

    Thats because 4G is more of a Internet signal, then a cell service. Airplane mode shuts down cell service that runs on 3G, while 4G being able to do its web abilities.

    And if you aren't using the 4G widget, use it. :p
