Airplane mode switches off all communications.
BUT, in airplane mode you can switch ON Wi-Fi, BT or NFC.
Many planes offer entertainment thru Wi-Fi, but there are other purposes to use flight mode, where calls are forbidden or you want to web-surf without being disturbed by incoming calls.
You just have to check the other brands!!! i.e., check this link:
AnonD-458703, 23 Oct 2015Are you having problems with loading videos on Instagram? Some videos won't load from time to ... morei have the same problem... i really like this phone but that is anoying...
Incessant bug (the touch stops working ...) Too light, it slips through your fingers but is not resistant. Too fragile. It is a plastic toy, you can even see the lights through the glass. It's junk.
Alcatel idol3 does not permit to switch Wi-Fi ON in airplane mode,
therefore you will not be able to access to any entertainment
in flights which offer it like movies, magazines,etc.
This functionality is also useful when you want to use wi-fi without
being disturbed with incoming calls.
This phone is a good phone but the camera is very terrible that you can't use it at night in darkness.

I bought this phone almost 6 months back and its a very reliable phone. Lately I've 2 issues. There is lot of response delay on clicks/touches. Not sure if its because the phone is encrypted. My call recipients complain of poor voice quality (handset/speaker/headset). this is not due to network or my location as this was not a complaint before
AnonD-222763, 14 Oct 2015Anybody know if this phone will get Android M?I think it will get Marshmallow although don`t no the time frame.
I bought the phone as an upgrade to my 2014 Moto G. I was looking at the Idol 3 or the new Moto G with 2 gb of ram for $229. After looking at what you get for both phones the Idol 3 was the easy winner as you get so much extra for that extra $20. Larger screen, full HD screen, 128 micro card upgrade and a few other extras. This is a great phone for $249!!
