    Permanently Disable Airplane Mode

    Every once in a while I notice that airplane mode is on. I am not sure what process causes this. I am not turning it on manually. When it is on, I am not getting any phone calls or text messages. I don't know that it's in airplane mode until I see it, so it could be on for quite a while.

    I will never use airplane mode. Ever. Not even on an airplane. When I board a plane, I turn my phone off.

    Does anyone know of a way to permanently disable or otherwise force the phone to never go into airplane mode?

    Welcome to the forum treadman!

    Sorry, I'm not a technician and don't know any way to disable Airplane Mode. Hang on for awhile, and see if any of our other members has some ideas.

    Airplane mode should not be turning on by itself.. Do you have a widget or toggle you are hitting by accident?

    What phone?

    Thanks for the replies!

    My phone is an LG Spectrum 2 - Android version 4.0.4

    I often go to the pull down at the top of the screen to change from Sound to Silent. Sometimes I see that other things are turned on in that menu even though I didn't turn them on, such as Bluetooth, NFC, and GPS. Those don't bother me. I just turn them off. Airplane mode is a problem.

    Edit: Did some more research on this. I used the search term "airplane mode turns on by itself". Many people seem to have this problem in different ways. For me it might be happening when there is no signal of any kind. No WiFi, no cell (3G, 4G).

    Well it happened again just now, so again I'm searching for something, anything to resolve this. I'm using search terms like 'completely remove airplane mode from android smart phone.'

    Is there some registry setting, or a plug-in, or an app or something that will remove airplane mode?

    I was not able to find how to permanently remove airplane mode from the OS, but I have not had any problems since removing the option from the pull-down menu. Pull down from the top, press "Edit", press "More", uncheck "Airplane mode". So far, not being on the menu has stopped it from being turned on.

    Well I had my One X stuck in Airplane mode for about 5 months, initially after I couldn't get it off and there was mostly guess work on most forums, like try this and try that etc, I tried all the supposed solutions but none worked so I bought another phone but every now and then I'd have another crack at the One X to try to figure out how to fix it.
    Today was the day, after a lot of trying this and that once again I ran a Super Wipe Script, put Renovate Final 4 Rom in the root directory of the phone, went into the recovery wiped everything and reset it to factory default, went into Advanced/Mounts and Storage unmounted everything ( cache, data, system, formatted cache, data and system then remounted everything again, manually flashed the Renovate final 4 kernel ( I'm unlocked S On) installed the Renovate final 4 Rom and to my surprise it booted into set-up and when finished I was on the net, unbelievable.
    I probably had a bit of over kill with what I did and don't know how much of it was necessary but I was desperate and had nothing to lose cos if I didn't fix it this time the phone was going to be a bin job.
    So if u have one of these (bricks) all is not lost and it can be fixed.
    I hope this has helped someone with the same problem.
    btw there is no known way of removing Airplane mode

    The only solution to this issue is to do a factory data reset, and reinstall everything again.

    Maybe that the best thing you can do. Reset all your settings. That's a big problem huh. :D
