What's Flight mode?

Airlines often require that you turn off your phone during flights. Flight mode is a setting on your phone that lets you turn off the mobile network, WiFi, FM radio and Bluetooth connections on your phone simultaneously. This way you can use other apps (including ones that let you listen to music or watch videos that are on your phone) that don't require a mobile connection. While you're in Flight mode, you can still use your FM radio and turn on WiFi and Bluetooth separately. The mobile connection remains switched off until you turn Flight mode off.

To turn Flight mode on or off

  1. On Start, flick left to the App list, and tap Settings Settings icon.

  2. Tap Flight mode, then turn it on or off.
