    Can i use my iPhone on an airplane? I know about airplane mode, but i have no att service. So im wondering if i still need to put it in airplane mode. Also, do airplanes have wifi? Im going on a trip to South America. Wanna be surfing web or playin games.

    ~thanks

    yup, you need to put it in airplane mode, no cell service is what airplane mode is for. Airplanes do not allow cell or radio signals transmitting.

    no matter what, you are supposed to turn it on airplane mode, and that shuts of cell signal.

    If there is no SIM card in your phone, it doesn't matter if it's in airplane or not.
