Just curious, what exactly is the Airplane mode used for??......Thanks
When you are flying or don't want the phone to receive any data. Pretty it becomes a media player.
So you can control the airplane with your phone
But yeah it's what dragon said.
Thanks for the info...i had thought it was for use to preserve battery drainage
Well considering it shuts off all signals, yes it does save the battery from draining
Which is especially useful should you find yourself in an area with little to no signal for an extended period of time.
thank you again for your contined help and support
Does the name not give you a hint?

Airplane mode is a battery saver. My phone stays in a metal locker for a good part of the day. No need for any data to be transmitted. Once I turn airplane mode off everything I missed, with the exception of calls, will sync.
No need for the condescending comments please. Some people are not familiar with every aspect of their devices. Remember everyone, including yourself, was new once.
Agreed...not everyone knows as much as someone like yourself who is actually on the cutting edge of software or hardware (as the name beta team implies). The old rule, "If you don't have something nice to say, say nothing at all" applies here.
As others have said, it certainly can contribute to extending the battery between charges since it turns off all Radio Frequency transmitters (i.e. Cellular, 3G, 4G, WIFI, Bluetooth). Once activated, you can then selectively turn on WIFI and/or Bluetooth to have limited connectivity such as to be able to communicate via Skype or other VOIP, as well as to use the Bluetooth features for BT Headsets, keyboards, mice, etc.
It's a quick way to turn off all of the radios at once, but by selectively reactivating those you want active, you can both reduce power consumption and still have full use of the unit depending on what you are doing with it. Also, if you are in an area (such as on a plane, or in a hospital for instance) that has restrictions to Radio Frequency transmitters, you can quickly and effectively "silence" those radios to prevent RF interference from creating problems for sensitive equipment nearby.
