How do I use airplane mode (or flight mode) on my Galaxy Note8?

Last Update Date : Apr 09. 2018

Airplane Mode


Unless you haven't been on a plane in the past decade or so, you know Flight regulations require phones to be turned off or set to Airplane mode during flights. Airplane mode disables all of your phone's wireless communication functions with just one touch. This includes cellular service, Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi. However, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth can be enabled while in Airplane mode. That’s great news, because you can still zone out to your favorite playlist.

Important: Airplane mode may be called Flight mode on your device.

Note: Screens and settings available may vary depending on your Canadian wireless service provider and your software version.
