    Not sure if anyone has faced this issue on Samsung Captivate? I searched the forum but did not find this posted.

    So I took a flight and found out something weird

    1. Enable Flight Mode
    2. Turn Off the phone
    3. Turn on the phone
    4. Disable Flight Mode
    -You see the 3G icon appear now. Try accessing the internet, go to the browser, or synch your email - it does not work.

    5. Turn off the phone
    6. Turn on the phone
    -- Now everything should be working as normal

    Any thoughts of why this is happening? I tried it a couple of times again to be sure and every time the issue occurs. There was no wifi access when I tried the above.

    I travel a lot, I mean 30%+ a month and have noticed the same thing. I just usually reboot, don;t know what the issue is. Since there is a simple fix and this only happens doing exactly that, I have not worried about it. Sorry don;t have any other fix than just reboot
