Use Airplane Mode on Galaxy S6 edge and S6 edge+

If you're a frequent flier, you know the drill: FAA regulations require you to turn off your phone or set it to Airplane mode during a flight. Airplane mode turns off your phone's celluar service, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth with a single touch. However, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth can be enabled, so don't worry about missing your favorite podcast en route to your destination. Happy travels!

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