    I work nights and I'm sick of this thing switching to "airplane mode" on me. I then have to go into settings and turn WIFI back on. Is there a way to completely disable "airplane mode"? Thanks.

    There's no way to disable airplane mode that I'm aware of but it shouldn't go into it on its own. Do you have a battery saver app installed? That's the only way I can think of which would turn it on automatically.

    are you using "battery widget reborn"?

    that has a setting that turns on airplane mode between set times, go into the apps settings and disable it.

    What does airplane mode do anyway? I just checked and it is "on". I can however turn wifi on and off, and receive GrooveIP calls. Since there is no cell radio, what is it actually turning on/off?

    Choosing airplane mode turns off all radios (cellular in a phone, WiFi, BlueTooth, and possibly NFC though I am not sure) and you can then turn on at WiFi.
