Eddy from Finger Lakes, NY

Eddy just wants to listen to music or stream on his phone without being disturbed. How can he turn off his phone without losing internet? Leo says that he can maybe turn it off in phone settings. He could turn on call forwarding. *72. Input another number, and it will forward all calls to that number, like a landline or a Google Voice. Then *73 to turn it off. He can also try turning on airplane mode, and then re-enable WiFi for data only. 

Why does my HTC One go into airplane mode when the alarm goes off?

Episode 1032

Carlos from San Bernadino, CA

Carlos' HTC One turns airplane mode on each time his alarm goes off. Leo says that's odd, but he advises using a third party alarm app to see if that solves the problem. Leo likes Timely.

Leo also says that there could be a setting in a Tasker or Locale app that will do that. So it's possible that Carlos' forgot he had that capability. Otherwise, resetting his phone should fix it.
