What's airplane mode?
Airplane mode is a setting on your phone that lets you turn off the cellular connection, Wi-Fi, FM radio, Bluetooth, and near field communication (NFC) sharing on your phone simultaneously. You can still use other apps that don't require a cellular connection, including ones that let you listen to music or watch videos.
While you're in airplane mode, you can still turn on Wi-Fi, FM radio, Bluetooth, and NFC sharing individually. Cellular remains off until you turn off airplane mode.
To turn airplane mode on or off
In the App list, tap Settings > Airplane mode.
Turn Status to On or Off .
- Depending on your mobile operator, phone model, and Windows Phone operating system (OS) version, FM radio may not be available on your phone.
- The Airplane mode icon () appears on the status bar at the top of your screen when airplane mode is turned on.
