In offline mode the n80 still has WLAN on, which mean that you would be braking the rules.
This kinda sucks as it would have been nice to be able to take the phone on board.

Though crash the plane, i doubt it.

Unless you are the pilot then I think you're safe. However different airlines have different policies. You can not use any electrical devices until the plane is in cruising mode on any airlines. Then it is always wise to ask a stewardess. They are usually quite clued up these days on 'flight mode' on phones and pdas. Make sure your wireless connection is also off.

However the same can't be said about old people in hospitals. You are waiting to see a doctor and to pass the time you put your phone in flight mode and play a game etc. The amount of daft people that think it is their business to point out the 'no mobile phones' sign to you. One even got the nurse. Trying to explain 'flight mode' was ridiculous.

go to connectivity/conn. mgr/ act data conn. select the active ones and under options you can disconnect.

unless you have the four boxes on your main screen the wireless is OFF anyay.

Does this also apply to the E61?

Actually in Offline mode the phone shoudl ask before connecting to WLAN (though it may try and scan depending on your settings). In anycase WLAN isn't a problem as its safe to use on a plane (Boeing have a WiFi solution that is used of SAS among others).

The wise thing to do is ask before using, but generally speaking unless you are flying a low cost carrier you should be fine.

A good rule of thumb is, if you press the right soft key and the plane banks to the right, then press the left soft key and the plane banks to the left, TURN OFF YOUR PHONE!

Also if you press the end call key and the engine switches off the best thing to do is press the green call key as quickly as you can. Then hide your phone and try not to look too suspicious.

Oh and be very careful about not pushing the pencil key. This opperates the pilots ejector seat and could give the game away.

Apart from that you should be fine!
