    This morning I noticed my phone was in airplane mode. took it off but every time the screen goes black the phone goes back into airplane mode. has anyone encountered this? i havent done anything to the root and only downloaded a few apps.

    Yea I unchecked it but it goes back into airplane mode whenever the phone goes into hibernation. went to the metropcs store and they said it was an app, didnt know which one so they got rid of them all. last app i added was ant smasher for my son to play.

    i really need a vacation, does living in a hotel for the next 6 weeks count?

    i think my son somehow got into the battery booster tweak and set it to airplane mode. problem now is that metropcs tech set the time zone to gmt and i am eastern. seems you cant change your time since its set to automatic. well a day, we are moving on top of everything else with the phone and all 3 kids sick.

    Glad you got the data issue figured out. As for the time setting, you are supposed to be able to manually set the time if you are in airplane mode, so if you're still stuck right now, try that.

    I factory reset the fone, amd the airplane mode came back, i went into settings, turned it off and it was still on...so, i reset a second time. A message came on about a custom rom..
    ??? We got this fone from a friend and everything was cleared out already! About ready to throw this fone and it hasn't been activated yet
