    How does airplane mode not work? That turns off the cell radio. Unless you have wifi on as well.

    I think airplane mode turns off everything, radio, gps, bluetooth, the whole shot.

    Actually it looks like bluetooth can be turned back on independantly, give it a shot and see if it works.

    Didn't realize that....there's a option is setting to turn data off. I'm sure there's a widget that does it as well, just unaware as I never turn data off.

    You can use bluetooth in airplane mode.

    Yup, bluetooth has to be turned back on independantly after airplane mode is turned on. Tested on my laptop and it connects.

    Ok....try network switcher, free in the market. I think it will work for you.

    I had the milestone, there is no way for bluetooth to be on while in airplane mode, unfortunately tied together. Well, I never found a solution, just turned off 3g using APNdroid and lived with it like that. On my Moto Defy, it is separate functionality, I can turn bluetooth on while in airplane mode

    Well the airplane mode is a fixed function of the hardware/software, built right into android. The only apps you will find are airplane mode off/on widgets, which do the same thing as the stock airplane widget or the power control widget...no need for an app IMO
