    Airplane Mode & related issues

    I have noticed a few issues with airplane mode lately. First sometimes it just doesn't transition to airplane mode, it says its on or its off but in either state its no reflecting in the signal meter.

    Next issue is each night I put the phone in airplane mode and plug it in to charge, during the night I heard several "droid, droid, droid" sounds from the phone then its quiet (wife is getting annoyed) and finally the best part, since the phone is in airplane mode there is NO reason I should have a voicemail waiting for me since there is no cell signal to get a message with. Yet every morning I have a voicemail indicator waiting. I turn off airplane mode and voila, no voicemails at all.

    My wife says, leave your droid downstairs, period.

    Or just charge it off. Unlike the D1 and D2's you can charge the D3 in an off state. Just has a battery on the screen.

    end of line...

    I have tried that, not sure why but mine powers back up from a powered off state when I charge it.

    Hi - New to the forums and first smartphone. Wishing I never got this one and I've only had it a few days.

    I am also having issues with airplane mode. It's turning itself on and I'm having problems getting it off. I don't know if it's "user error" or what.

    if you have only had it for a few days you can return it and get a different device.

    OP, Have you tried sleep mode?
    Go to work, send your kids to school, follow fashion, act normal, walk on the pavement, watch t.v., save for your old age, obey the law, don't ask questions, and repeat after me.....I am free.

    Yep, well aware of that and will see what happens when I stop in the store tomorrow.

    If I were you I would try replacement. Or switch phones...the Bionic is right around the corner (we hope) so depending on when your 15 days is up that might be an option.

    Just put the phone in silent mode (volume all the way down). Alarm will still work.

    There's a volume rocker on the side of the phone that will solve all this....

    Make sure you don't have any new voicemails that haven't been "read" yet. Google Voice, if you use it, might continually try and notify you, having nothing to do with cell signal.
