    I am glad to see this. I wish Apple would hurry up with the deployment of the technology they bought originally developed by SAAB for 3d terrain and mapping.



    Ok sorry. How about them Baidu searching options? Great addition for those of us who have inflight wifi on a trip to China.

    Wha? Do you guys have iPhones?



    Turn on airplane mode, then turn on wifi. This is what you do when you travel with your phone. You really didn't know this?

    I'm in Airplane mode but have both Bluetooth and WiFi on so it only really affects the phone.



    Turns your iPhone into an iPod touch. Very useful when you dont want to get phone calls or text messages, or use battery. Travel.

    Disengaging the seatbelt warning is a horrible and potentially very dangerous suggestion. Even if, (as in the case you quote), you have a heavy object on the front seat, if it's heavy enough to trip the sensor, then that object should be belted in anyway. The seatbelt is there as much to stop objects in the front seat (typically a person), from becoming a projectile and killing someone outside the car as it is for the protection of the object the person in the seat. Any heavy objects in the front seat should be secured.



    There's also the back seat (a much wiser choice), and the trunk, (a much wiser choice than even the back seat).



    Suggesting that someone routinely disengage the seat belt warning when they need to carry large unsecured heavy objects in the front seat is insane advice IMO.



    I think it is false to claim that seatbelts exist as much to protect people outside for potentially lethal flying objects. It's more of an afterthought. Also, I am not sure it is safer to place heavy objects in the back seat. Drivers and front seat passengers often get killed by heavy blows to the back of the head in car accidents. The trunk is probably safest.



    As for turning that horrid bleeping off, I for one think it's a great idea. It drives me to distraction and makes me drive eratically. I can't wear seatbelts because it makes it too hard to whack my kids fighting in the back. . But seriously, I'd love to turn that pesky sound off. But I'll be sure to add a disclaimer. I'll print out Solips' post and stick it to the unplugged wire.

    Sorry no, I didn't read the whole thread before I replied I figured once two people had asked the same question I could answer it.

    I don't do that, cause my boss covered half the cost for me to buy an Apple unlock phone so I can swap sims when we shoot out of country



    But I knew you could do it

    That's fine with me. In fact, I'd be happy if Apple made Bing or Yahoo the default everywhere.

    The normal procedure is that you should learn something about a subject before posting.

    AI should change the topic title and have done with it!

    Funny, I'm not the one asking how you can get airplane mode and WiFi active on an iPhone at the same time.
