    In the off chance that the owner finds this post, I found a droid in airplane mode on a plane leaving Atlanta on Feb 11th, which unfortunately means there will be no incoming calls and I can't unlock the phone to find any contacts. So if you flew into Atlanta yesterday and lost your droid PM me. Just provide me with your seat number and details about the phone to confirm it's yours and I will overnight it back to you. Otherwise, I will be turning it into Verizon this evening.

    Thank you for being an honest person who knows the correct way to handle something like this. The chances that the owner is even a member of this Forum is remote but it doesn't hurt to try.

    If by any chance the Verizon Store refuses it, call *611 or go here, enter your zip and it will give you an 800 number.

    Is there a way to turn off airplane mode without unlocking the phone? Any sort of reset that won't erase the phone?

    You can pull the battery out of it.

    Oh I thought you just wanted to power down the phone. Yep, it will go back to what it was previously.

    Doesn't Emergency Call overide that? Or am I mistaken?

    If so, can't you just Emergency Call --> Contacts ect.

    No contacts available in Emergency call, nor any ICE numbers. Tried calling my office with the phone to get the cell number, but the emergency dialer will only call 911 and lists the numbers as "not an emergency number"

    Rebooting into recovery worked? Or the phone started working?
