Use Your Galaxy Note5 in Airplane Mode

Galaxy Note5 Airplane mode intro image

Unless you haven't been on a plane in a 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, while still in Airplane mode, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth can be enabled. This is supremely important for zoning out to your favorite playlist.

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