Use Airplane Mode on Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge

Unless you haven't been on a plane in the past decade or so, you know FAA 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.

The available screens and settings may vary by wireless service provider and software version.
