    I have had my D3 about a month and flown 3 times. All 3 times I have had a problem shutting off the Airplane Mode -- the toggle in Settings doesn't work at all. Eventually I try to make a call and get a message that I can't do that in "airplane mode" do you want to shut it off? I click yes -- AND I'M FINALLY OUT! Has anyone else had this problem. I previously had the D1 for a year and a half and never had this problem. (It also seemed to trigger a "No GPS signal problem" which I resolved by taking out the battery -- see my other posts.) I'm flying again next Saturday. Anyone have any clues about this??

    Welcome to the community. We're glad to have you. Hopefully ill be able to help you out with this problem. Have you tried to download a widget app such a "extended controls" to try to toggle airplane mode?

    Yes, that appears to work. Thanks to you and Hawaiian Princess.
