I was just thinking that on a device like this they definitely need to implement and airplane mode like they have on Siemens mobiles and like they have available on 3650/7250 through some third party software (don't remember which). Otherwise what good is a portable gaming device if you can't use it.

Any word from Nokia on this?

Who seriously thinks a flight attendant will know that the "gameboy thingie" you are using is actually a phone... I was actually just being a concerned citizen, although I have been known to use a cell phone on board a plane.

That's EXACTLY the point, I have a 7650 with Systemtools intalled. I took a plane last month and when I was playing Zelda the flight attendant came to me to tell me to switch the phone off, then I told her the phone was on flight mode and I showed her the SIM card. Well...

She looked at me like: "Shut the fuck off and turn that device off right this second", you know with that sweet smile they have...

And that I did, so Flight Mode is kinda useless :D

They allow using laptop computers too, where you could have internally e.g. a Bluetooth / GPRS / WLAN chip.

I have used the SE P800 many times in airplanes and they have believed when I've told that my phone's switched to radio off mode.

SEMC now have a formal agreement in place with SAS regarding the P800's flight mode, which is a start!

n-gage *does* have a flight mode (or at least the current firmware does anyway)

the difference is that the p800 looks like a PDA, the n-gage looks like a gameboy and the 6600 looks like a phone... PDA's and gameboy's are allowed on planes, phones are not....

Both the N-Gage AND the N-Gage QD have a "flight" mode... Simply give the power button a quick press and select "Offline." This option is hard-wired into the game deck and turns the game deck on, but switches off all radio communications, including bluetooth.

I've never had any problems using "flight" mode on the various devices that I've owned over the years... Just a quick explanation (about "flight" mode) and I'm free to continue as normal!
